“While the sounds on Next to Nowhere are rooted in the great musical hallmarks of the past, it’s only because they speak eternally. So do McKee’s songs: they poetically, yet directly, come right at the gristle and grain of life itself — without reservation. They wear their scars as badges of honor; their victories with grace, sass, and swagger. Her protagonists detail our own struggles, failures, celebrations, loves, and losses with honesty, commitment, acceptance, and willingness. All this in an era when we need them most. Tough, tender, and resilient, McKee’s excellent Next to Nowhere comes from a songwriter we need to hear more from. Period.” — Thom Jurek (AllMusic)
