As a member and guitarist of Athens band Grand Vapids, musician McKendrick Bearden knows what makes people listen, and it seems he’s packed it all into his debut solo album, Bright As The Mines Out, released Feb. 24. Recorded during the 2020 lockdown, it’s a heartfelt, smooth, home recorded album that sometimes rocks, but mostly flows sweetly. Bearden will be holding a release party and show at Ciné on Mar. 4 with opener Allegra Krieger from New York City.
