Professional Pedal Steel Guitar Overdubs


I offer professional pedal steel overdub recordings for your song of any genre recorded with expert attention to your arrangement and production. As a session player, I’ve recorded on hundreds of songs including overdubs for multi-platinum and grammy nominated songwriters and arrangers. I can play honky-tonk all day (I play in several country bands), but I also love developing lustrous melodies with subtleties and nuance, catchy hooks, or lush beds of harmony for jazz, country, americana, folk, indie rock, pop and more. Check out my reels – I’ve learned to use the pedal steel in some surprising ways! Recorded with high end Amp/Mic/Preamp chain.

“McKay possesses in spades all my favorite qualities in a musician and collaborator: technical prowess, impeccable instincts, a willingness to approach arrangements from various angles, a generous spirit… His playing is expressive yet full of nuance and restraint; he gave such evocative and ethereal new layers to my music.” –Field Guides
