The Early years
Growing up in Dearborn Heights, Michigan it was at a early age music and the guitar became a part in my life.I Picked up the guitar at the age of 11 and started to teach myself to play. I have enjoyed all types of music especially listening to the Beatles and many other artists of the day But I was really drawn to the feel of blues music and guitar players such as B.B King, Eric Clapton and Rory Gallagher just to name a few.I soon found myself playing in neighborhood garages with my friends. Rocking out songs such as Brown Sugar, Cant explain and Taking care of business.This band of friends went on to play local school dances and local festivals.
I also enjoyed writing and creating my own songs at a early age which found me in several original music projects through the years. More recently I played in the cover band Scratch which played the local clubs. Then I went on to form with good friends the original band Wheres Keith which to date have recorded 2 albums of original music in the vein of pop rock.But I have always appreciated the emotion of the blues. I love this style of music because it allows you to express yourself with feel that is distinctly you. Allows you to reach inside and share it with a audience. I truly feel at home when Playing the blues.
We are excited to share these songs with you and we hope you will enjoy them as much as We have enjoyed crafting them.
Thank you for listening.

Story behind Woody Mac?
This is part a tribute to my father and to my Scottish heritage.When I was a child my father gave me the nickname Woody in reference to one of my favorite cartoons at the time Woody Woodpecker.The Mac comes from my Scottish last name McMillan which is pronounced (MacMillan) and was my Dads nickname given to him by his co-workers at Ford motor Co in Ypsilanti Michigan.
So I introduce to you
Woody Mac AKA (Allen McMillan)
For this project I was joined by Drummer Timmy Sears and Bassist Jeff Dork.
These tracks were introduced to Timmy and Jeff the same day they were arranged and recorded.within hours the song was captured Taking no more than three takes at the most.This was in order to keep the raw live and natural feel of each song.
