TOM MACLEAR (Producer, Singer-Songwriter) is an actual living legacy of the Southern California Country Rock boom of the 70's & 80's. MacLear was one of those gifted writers, performers and session artist who was a member of the bands, tours or albums of such legendary friends and colleagues: ‘The Flying Burrito Brothers’, ‘The Hot Band’, Vince Gill’s & Byron Berline’s ‘Sundance’, Rusty Young and ‘Poco’, ‘The Dirt Band’ and numerous others. Since those early days, MacLear proceeded to have one of those prolific, quiet careers that very few true musicians have – not the guys on the marquee, but the ones who write the songs, write out the set lists, mentor the stars on the marquee, play the hooks’ and licks that people whistle in the shower or on a street corner, and occasionally venture out with a record or project of his or her own. If you have not heard of MacLear, you have almost certain heard MacLear. Aside from his Country roots, MacLear has written for or played with Rod Stewart, Annie Lennox and Concrete Blonde, among numerous others, and has enjoyed a career within a career as the front man for the band MacLear during the Celtic rock boom. He has written screenplays, recently published a book of poems, and has produced art for such television shows as Californication and Caveman.
RACHEL QUINN is a phenomenal Vocalist who has graced the stages at SXSW to The House Of Blues of L.A. and Las Vegas, to the pressure cooker venues of L.A.’s Sunset Blvd, to a long and notable list of Pop, R&B and Soul Concerts in the U.S. and in Europe, earning her particular notoriety with the ‘A’ list shakers of the Soul and R&B Industry.
With the combination of the young, vibrant and captivating vocals of RACHEL QUINN and the world-class melodies and ever-poignant lyrics of TOM MACLEAR, there is a one-two-knock-out-punch of NEW NASHVILLE coming your way in 2013!
“Sweet Summer Days” offers a sweet Soulful/Country sound you can drift away to in the front porch swing. The arrangement and flow of this well written song is sure to be a popular Summer download.
