Folk Bands and Artists
“Paul McClure has a voice made to hand out solace, advice and words to cushion the fall with a deep understanding translated easily by his ability to sing from the soul.” (Alternate Root, USA). Former front man and songwriter with Leicester’s The Hi And Lo (“Superior roots music from Leicester.” – Americana UK.) McClure´s solo career. has led him to share the stage with the likes of Justin Townes Earle, Otis Gibbs, Emily Barker and Red Sky July, with enthusiastic support provided by Mark Radcliffe´s Radio 2 folk show.
One of the very finest songwriters on the UK roots scene, Paul McClure´s perfectly formed, beautifully observational style takes inspiration from the greatest of sources, from The Beatles to Townes Van Zandt, Elvis Costello to Ryan Adams. A wonderful lyrical balance of wit, pathos, compassion and strength combines with an ear for timeless melody to prove these songs more than strong enough to carry the weight. He and his excellent band don´t play London often enough- don´t miss them.
