The Other Favorites
The Other Favorites are an indie folk duo based in Brooklyn, New York, that consists of Joshua Lee Turner and Carson McKee. They are perhaps best known for their performances on YouTube, which have garnered millions of views. A shared love of traditional bluegrass, folk, and classic rock music underpins their songwriting, which is distinguished by virtuosic guitar work, incisive lyricism, and tight vocal harmony. Their new album, Unamericana, explores a complicated relationship with the American identity.
