Chris McClenney is one of the new kids on Soulection's proverbial block; bringing a modest, heavily jazz-influenced brand of soulful funk to our beloved Cloud of Sounds.
A senior Music/Spanish double major at the University of Maryland, the artist formerly known as MISTERMACK is a producer who puts instrumentation and musicality first. A refreshing stance given the the saturation in the industry of Logic pros and synth bands.
He's recently released a small Soulection White Label project featuring a 4-track, multi-instrument one-man band. But you can listen to that your own damn self. Today, McClenney and I would like to school you cats on some Neo-Soul.
Chris salutes one of his key influences in his recent cover of "Lady" by D'Angelo. An old-school sensibility coupled with contemporary technical prowess creates a consistent, soothing interpretation of the classic D'Angelo track.
