JFH Indie Inspection Review

Street Date: 2008
Style: Alternative
Artist Website: MichaelMcClead.com


Michael McClead is a singer/songwriter from Yorkville, Illinois. There are many varied sounds on the record, from hip hop loops to simple acoustic guitar to string accompaniments. The one constant is the vocally distinct, gravel toned voice of Mr. McClead. Sometimes it works (like the opening track "Angel of Mine") and sometimes it does not ("No Reasons Why"). The production work is good, but not as good as McClead, wearing the producer's hat, might think. By leaning on some production twists and trickery, it sounds at times like he lacks confidence in the songs that he has written. There is more good than bad to be found here, however, and the debut record from Michael McClead is worth checking out.
