Bio

Sometime assassin, sometime saint, Lincoln MacKinnon combines uplifting choruses, heart- break harmonies and a barely contained menace to produce music that is as powerful as it is memorable.

Based in Fremantle WA, these port-town rockers have been wowing crowds across the country with their infectious melodies; energetic live shows and their wild and unruly swagger. With recent shows with celebrated Australian bands: Kill Devil Hills, William Crighton, Tex Perkins and The Southern River Band, Lincoln’s contagious hooks are spreading...

Following on from his first studio album, ‘Little By Little a Little Later’, 2019 will see Lincoln release ‘SPARKS WILL FLY’ - a journey through unruly worlds of desert towns & wild camaraderie.

So kiss your lonely days goodbye, it’s time to knock over some beer glasses as Lincoln MacKinnon and The Wrecking Train bring their savage glee to the stage, to the world.
