Workman Song, folk-psych singer songwriter, plays Cameo Gallery (9.23)

Sean McMahon, lead singer and guitarist of Workman Song, is a self-described “meta-hippie,” whose folk-psychedelic music perfectly accompanies his beliefs. His voice, full of dynamic grit, adds depth to the atmospheric strum of his guitar as he sings of the existential and preaches the beauty of life. As a Brooklyn transplant, McMahon has made himself known within NYC’s local scene; just a month ago, Workman Song opened for Sean Lennon at the Brooklyn Bowl. In the description of his latest EP, “Ion Zelig Vol. III,” McMahon writes: “There’s no movement for you to join that I’m leading or a part of, it’s just a feeling I hope we can share. A feeling, in the sense of the word implied by this statement from some Metropolitan in a Jacob Needleman book, ‘Kill emotion. Cultivate feeling.’” Workman Song will be playing in Williamsburg at Cameo Gallery on September 23rd. - Isabel Rolston
