Roan Yellowthorn is singer/songwriter Jackie Lee McLean supported by multi-instrumentalist Shawn Strack. Her sophomore album, ‘Another Life’ was released in May by Blue Elan Records and produced by John Agnello (Waxahatchee, Alvvays, Hop Along). It is a lyrical and confessional meditation on other lives - those that were and those that could have been. The writing of each song was a therapeutic act, helping McLean to process traumatic experiences and strong emotions.

In July of this year, Roan Yellowthorn released a duet with musician Alex Cameron, a cover of ‘Islands In The Stream.’

Notable performances include Underwater Sunshine Fest and invitations to SXSW and Mile of Music. Roan Yellowthorn’s music has been featured in Pitchfork and Rolling Stone.
