BEVERLY MCCLELLAN ALBUM RELEASE
'Fear Nothing' [Tour Edition}
Blues rock powerhouse vocalist Beverly McClellan from smash hit TV show "The Voice" USA is set to release her album "Fear Nothing" in the UK & Europe through guitar virtuoso Steve Vai's label Favored Nations on Dec 1.
The television show, "The Voice" introduced her to millions of viewers as a singer of stunning power and range with the presence and ability to draw comparisons to Etta James, Janis Joplin, Bonnie Raitt and Melissa Etheridge, to name just a few of the great torchbearers whose legacies she evokes. Now McClellan is set to make her debut international release with Fear Nothing, an album which presents her as a true and original artist - a songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and dynamic presence with the ability, authority and desire to carve her own place in music history.
McClellan, who is an openly lesbian artist and activist for LGBT charities, believes she has a message: 'It's simple: be yourself, love yourself, always be honest, and let the rest come naturally. That's the way I live my life and make my music,' she says. And that's the easygoing Zen she applied to the recording of Fear Nothing at Los Angeles' House of Blues studios with producer David Z. (Prince, Fine Young Cannibals, Billy Idol, Buddy Guy).
A soulful rock singer with honest lyrics and a raw sound, Beverly plays over 10 instruments and has already released five independent albums. Originally from Virginia, she's worked the clubs and bars around Fort Lauderdale, Florida for nearly 20 years, always looking for that big break.
Having recorded lead vocals for the song "John the Revelator" on Steve Vai's 2012 album The Story of Light, McClellan is excited to have been asked to take her music on the road with the legendary guitar maestro on his world tour this autumn.
Unfortunately, Beverly has had to pull out of the UK 'Story of Light' tour dates with Steve Vai due to personal issues, with Steve Vai/Favored Nations Records issuing the following statement:
Beverly McClellan unexpectedly had to leave the Steve Vai European/UK tour to address personal issues at home in Florida. Unfortunately, she will not be returning for the remaining dates on this tour.
"She is perhaps the finest natural talent I have ever worked with and an excellent touring companion. She will be greatly missed and her Vai touring family wish her the best." -Steve Vai
