Info zu Blues For The Soul

Über die Ironie des Schicksals kann Mighty Sam McClain sein ganz eigens Lied singen: Der von vielen US-Kritikern heute als "größter lebender Soul- und Blues-Vokalist" eingestufte Künstler bekam erst als 50-Jähriger die Chance, ein Album unter eigenem Namen einzuspielen. Davor sang er im Background für Hubert Sumlin’ oder die Pop-Chanteuse Patsy Cline (Sweet Dreams) und hielt sich mit Gelegenheitsjobs über Wasser. Doch ein glückliches Ende scheint sich abzuzeichnen: Blues For The Soul präsentiert den Vokalisten, der Bobby Bland, Solomon Burke oder Otis Redding als seine Vorbilder nennt, in Höchstform. Mit einer versierten Band und den fetzigen Mighty-Horns sorgt er für unter die Haut gehende Stimmung und vielleicht auch dafür, dass nach zwei Nominierungen endlich tatsächlich eine Grammy-Verleihung ins Haus steht.

"Soul 'n' Blues, der in jeder Note glaubwürdig rüberkommt." (Stereo)

"Die CD verrät bereits im Albumtitel, wo sich Mighty Sam McClain im schwarzen Popkosmos bewegt. Die Kunst des Crooning und eine Menge Phrasierungen hat der gedrungene Mann ganz offenbar von Bobby Blue Bland übernommen. Doch wenn es um Soul geht, muss man bis auf O.V. Wright zurückgreifen, um der Wucht seines gutturalen Gesangs gerecht zu werden. Denn wie jener schrammt auch Mighty Sam scheinbar stets am Rande des Abgrunds und entkommt nur mit der Kraft der Verzweiflung dem "Battlefield Of Love", der "Dark Side Of The Street". Auf den zwölf selbst geschriebenen Songs - fast alle haben das Zeug zum Klassiker - steht dem Sänger eine erstklassige Begleitband zur Seite: Sams Wahlheimat New Orleans liefert die rollenden Funk-Bässe, und die Rhythmussektion mit Hammond und Bläsersätzen klingt so dicht wie einst die Muscle-Shoals-Studioband. Soul in Breitwandformat!" (Jonathan Fischer, Jazzthing)

Mighty Sam McClain




Mighty Sam McClain
By the early 1990's Sam networked his way to New England through his participation in the "Hubert Sumlin Blues Party" project (produced by Hammond Scott on Black Top), which involved many Boston based musicians. These friends provided encouragement and collaborations, which led to Joe Harley and AudioQuest Music. The results were the successful releases, "Give It Up To Love" and "Keep On Movin". After his move to New Hampshire the momentum continued to build with "Sledgehammer Soul and DownHome Blues". In 1998 Sam had two releases, "Journey" (AQM) and "Joy and Pain -Live in Europe" on the CrossCut label. "Soul Survivor -The Best of MSM" was his farewell to AudioQuest in 1999. ("Journey" and "Soul Survivor" both include "New Man in Town", featured on David E. Kelley's Ally McBeal on FOX-TV). Sam signed on with the Telarc Blues label in 1999, taking his longtime producer Joe Harley with him and recorded W.C. Handy nominated "Blues for the Soul in 2000 and "Sweet Dreams" in 2001 (also Handy nominated)

Sam started to take back his career in 1996 and turned to managing himself. His publishing company, Emily's Son Publishing, has been licensed since 1993 when his original work appeared on "Give "It Up To Love". McClain formed McClain Productions after successfully co-producing his CD's with Joe Harley. And now, the last step of his independence has been realized through the creation of his own label, Mighty Music which release his CD "One More Bridge To Cross" in February 2003. His newest project, "Betcha Didn't Know" which reveals yet another side of MSM was released in July 2009 on Mighty Music with City Hall Records as the distributor. Sam greatly appreciated the nomination of this CD by The Blues Association as "Soul/Blues Album 2010".

2008 brought Sam into the "Give US Your Poor" project, benefiting the homeless. He co-wrote (with saxophonist Scott Shetler) "Show Me the Way", which was included in the compilation where he and Jon Bob Jovi sung this stirring anthem as a duet. He continues to work with this project, performing at both The Lincoln Center, New Your City and at The Kennedy Center in Washington and other venues, sharing the stage with Natalie Merchant, and the smashing Greek tenor, Mario Frangoulis as well as the others mentioned on the CD. In early 2009, MSM was asked to record a CD of duets with Iranian folk vocalist Mahsa Vadhat. The resulting CD, "Scent of Reunion-Love Duets Across Civilizations" (www.kkv.no) reached #6 in the European World Music Charts and this is a Mighty Sam McClain that has never been heard before! Mahsa and Sam have had concerts in Norway to celebrate this music. Sam and the guitarist for this project, Knut Reisersrud, are collaborating on a CD that will be recorded in Norway in January 2011. Also, Sam has sung the theme song for Ernest Thompson, (the Oscar winner for "On Golden Pond") for his new film, "Time and Change$. "Find the Sun" is a song written by Thompson and Joe Deleault (keyboards in MSM's band) but is recognizable a song that Sam has made his own. Furthermore, he will have a cameo in the film, singing it! To top it of, Sam has recorded another CD-ready to go, called "Too Much Jesus (Not Enough Whiskey)" and the next music in the works. Pat Herlehy (Sam's guitarist) and MSM have a deep connection that is producing some great music.Sam in Paris

Mighty Sam McClain is in control - of his life and career as he continues to perform nationally andinternationally. It's full steam ahead for this great vocalist! "The Soul of America" is what he is called in Europe - he is, just as his lyrics describe, "I'm a singer, a man with a song.and I've got a message for you."
