“By the time every 30-something punk dude and their mom had picked up an acoustic guitar and started singing ‘This Land is Your Land,’ Brian had found his way back up to the East Coast, this time to Asbury Park, N.J.,” says the bio of songwriter/multi-instrumentalist and former Ashevillean Brian McGee. The Philadelphia native moved north a couple of years ago, reuniting with Plow United, the pop-punk band of his misspent youth. With that group he recorded 2013’s Marching Band, then went on to make his third solo album, Ruin Creek. It “combines punk brevity with rain-streaked folk minimalism.” McGee recently returned to Asheville for a show at The Odditorium. In advance, he performed “My Wheels Are True” for Acoustic Asheville.
