Little Maker is the solo project of New Orleans-native singer/songwriter Micah McKee (Empress Hotel, Silent Cinema). With an ensemble cast of musicians, Little Maker is a tribute to pop music's present unraveling and rock and roll's folk-speckled and rustic past. Using lush violin lines and vividly nostalgic horn blasts, McKee's ensemble amplifies the stark lyrical and melodic earnestness.
In January 2013 they released their debut album "Patrons of the Saint", produced by ex-dBs bassist Jeff Beninato. Summer 2015 will see the release of their follow-up LP "The Wail and the Wheel", as well as a second appearance at the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival.
Little Maker has shared the stage with such acts as Scout Niblett, Heartless Bastards, Jenny and Johnny,Feufollet, Andrew Duhon, Kristin Diable, Little Radar, These United States, and many more.
