Since then he has moved from Dave Matthews sound-alike to developing his own sound, style, and voice. McKillen spent 4 years at the University of Notre Dame in South Bend, IN, obtaining a degree in Finance. After months of traveling and playing shows, he began work on his first full length, self-produced album titled ‘Stagefright.’ This album is to be released in early May of 2011 and features songs written throughout the last four years.
