Kyle Alan Maclean is an indie rock/pop songwriter who works guitar, vocals, sampler and radio. He started Humanoid a decade ago as an acoustic solo act, but it evolved into a four-piece rock band. By 2010, Maclean had de-evolved, though, and brought Humanoid back to its solo-act status. “Think of the love-child of Nick Drake and Hank Williams, with Bob Dylan as the Godparent,” Maclean says in describing the intimate and melodic mood he creates in Humanoid. “Subject matters include love, death, peace and the pursuit of the American dream.” Making a guest appearance with Humanoid at Homegrown will be Mary Bue.
