About Chris McClenney
While studying music in his home state of Maryland, Chris captured the attention of Los Angeles collective Soulection. With his diverse blend of genres and production styles, McClenney's music threads an eclectic soundscape that is distinctively his own. His sounds reference vintage stylings of R&B, Jazz and Soul with the forward thinking elements of contemporary Electronic, Pop and Hip-Hop.
Originally catching the ears of LA's Soulection label in 2014, Chris McClenney made international waves with his music by lacing soul, electronic, trap, and unmistakable unique groove on top of all of his productions. Now after numerous successful releases and production credits on D.R.A.M's latest release Big Baby D.R.A.M., McClenney is preparing for the next chapter in his sonic story with the release of his EP Portrait in Two on Jan 13, 2017, that will showcase his many talents as a singer, songwriter, producer, and multi-instrumentalist.
The first part of the story is represented by lead single "Otherside." What McClenney describes as a "look within," "Otherside" is a soul-meets-R&B production riddled with boom-bap percussion and guitar rifts, all tied together with McClenney's smooth vocal top-line. Even more impressive, each instrument heard on the track is composed and played by McClenney:
"This is a tune dedicated to being human. Harmonically, the tune conveys a somber sense of hope and optimism, rhythmically a sense of urgency, and melodically, honesty. It was important I play guitar, bass and keys on it to truly express the organic nature of the song."
Still to come, McClenney is gearing up for a soon to be announced EP coming this winter season that is a full-length project he wrote, performed, and produced entirely on his own while still in college in New York at NYU.
