In 2009, McKeown and Lorin Sklamberg,
the lead singer of The Klezmatics,
released Saints & Tzadiks
(World Village/Harmonia Mundi),
an album combining Yiddish and Irish songs.
McKeown devised and produced
Songs from the East Village,
a world music album of songs from the students,
parents and staff of The East Village
Community School in Manhattan which was
released in September 2010.
In October 2010 she released the solo album,
Singing in the Dark,
an exploration of creativity
and madness. With lyrics from poets
who were writing through the lens of
depression, mania and addiction,
the music was composed by McKeown,
Leonard Cohen, John Dowland, Violeta Parra,
and Klezmatics members
Lisa Gutkin and Frank London.
In November 2012 she released Belong,
her third album of original songs.
