Jason McCue, an indie singer/songwriter from West Chester who now lives and attends college in Seattle, is releasing a new album called Pangaea, writes Michael Lello for Highway 81 Revisited.
Pangaea was a supercontinent that existed during the late Paleozoic and early Mesozoic eras, before the present-day continents broke apart from one another. Pangaea is a concept that serves as a framework for the songs on McCue’s new album.
“It’s the idea of splitting up and breaking something that might have been thought to be unbreakable,” McCue said.
Growing up in West Chester, McCue listened to The Beatles. He later discovered groups like Queen and Modest Mouse.
After high school, he attended Drexel for a period. At 19, he transferred to the University of Seattle to take courses in environmental studies. He’s now a senior who hopes to graduate in June.
As far as his music career is concerned, McCue says he just wants to have fun.
“I have no clue what this record will amount to, where I’ll be able to go in the near future, or anything else,” McCue said. “So I want to make sure I’m enjoying this time in my life when I’m able to put out my art and perform when I want to.”
