Stu McKay

Stu Mckay is a Perth-based singer/songwriter/guitarist that has been playing in the original and cover scene for close to a decade. This experience has given him a great insight into reading a crowd to ensure they always have the best soundtrack to their night out. 

With a vast and varied repertoire, Stu can satisfy the aural needs of any crowd young, old and everything in between. Playing all the classics you know and love whilst also appreciating those underdog gems that commercial radio forgot about. 

Playing an eclectic collection of songs ranging from Buddy Holly to Billie Eilish, Stevie Wonder to Slipknot; there’s no chance of Stu ever playing the same setlist twice which makes him ideal for residencies at pubs and bistros, weddings and corporate events.

There are currently no photos for this artist.

 Stu played really well love his songs, we had a great time. I will definitely recommend him to my friends.
