Eamon McGrath is a folk music and punk rock musician from Edmonton, Alberta. He performs solo but also with three separate backing bands, The Wild Dogs, Peacemaker, and The Blackout Begins. On his own, his live performances are most often folk-oriented, where McGrath plays songs from his discography on acoustic instruments, but with a band the live show takes on a much more high-energy, punk rock influenced vein.[1]

McGrath records primarily on his own at his home in Edmonton and releases albums independently in Canada and through a number of record labels, including Canada's White Whale Records who recently signed McGrath at the tail end of 2008.[2] 2008 also saw McGrath begin a rigid touring schedule which has brought us up to the start of 2010. [3] On April 28, 2009, White Whale Records released McGrath's most recent offering, "13 Songs Of Whiskey and Light", a compilation of previously recorded works.

McGrath is currently finished the recording of his next White Whale release, "Peace Maker," to be released mid-2010. The record is produced by David Carswell and John Collins of The Evaporators.
