McKinley is a blues and soul singer based in San Francisco. He regularly performs at festivals, concerts and blues clubs in the US and Europe. His tributes to Otis Redding have received high praise, with critics commending his voice as having a �profound likeness to the king of soul.� Alongside Otis Redding, McKinley�s music heroes include Solomon Burke, David Ruffin, Bobby Womack and Teddy Pendergrass.

McKinley was born to Texan parents in Sacramento, California, where he spent his early childhood in a house filled with music. His father, a Baptist preacher, and housewife mother, sang rousing African American spirituals. McKinley played drums in high school, and picked up the harmonica, and later moved to San Francisco where clubs such as Dottie Ivory�s Stardust Lounge and Nickie�s Bar-B-Que had become popular with local blues fans. McKinley�s first big music performance was in 1986, when he asked to sing at the Sacramento State Fair�s first African American Day celebration.
