He released his debut solo album, Innu Town, in 1997. Two years later, he was seriously injured in a car accident.
He made a recording comeback in 2009 with the album "Inniu" (meaning "being reborn") with Montreal producer François Lesage who offered McKenzie to re-record this album with his ex-partner of the group Kashtin, Florent Vollant. Lesage also helped McKenzie to write the only French song of the album, "Nous". All other songs are written in Innu, a native language found in Québec, as it was the case with all songs from the three albums issued by Kashtin in the late 1980s and early 1990s.
