Listening to the rock-heavy storytelling of Kip Macklejar, you would think that this musician is from the grew up on a Texas ranch or a Louisiana bayou, but what’s surprising is that he’s actually from the Danish capital Copenhagen. What first opened up the young Macklejar to this world of transformative rock was when he saw Rolling Stones play live at 13 years old, and the rest is history.
Further inspired by the likes of Led Zeppelin, The Beatles, Cage the Elephant, and Frank Zappa, the Danish musician has sought to create a deeper connection between himself and rock music by writing his own unapologetically fun lyrics with upbeat rock and blues instrumentation.
If you trace this journey, then you’ll be led to Macklejar‘s newest song ‘Coal Miner’s Daughter’; it’s a high-octane narrative in which the artist’s sung-spoken verses deliver rich imagery. This highlight of this track is clearly the guitar-swinging and body-thrusting chorus. It’s a blues-rock belter.
