~ ABOUT ~









George McClure selfie Dia de los Muertos girl







"Gifted right-brained individual" Nashville Music Guide         "Swing he certainly can and does" Rick Huff - Western Way Magazine




"I am a song, living to be sung."     George McClure's music doesn't elude categories. It embraces them. "Swing, cowjazz Borderlands, gospel, blues and bluegrass all fit into his extraordinary breadth." George is a multi-dimensional writer (his "Alien Love" hit in Japan, the first 5-string banjo improv book, hundreds of songs & instrumentals, and a stunning autobiography in narrative style), but perhaps the most surprising aspect of George's music is his singing.

~ BACKGROUND ~









DIRTY GEORGE   Writer * Singer * Showman

"He who listens with ears and heart, knows true beauty."

"We come with the dust and go with the wind..."
[Woody Guthrie, from Pastures of Plenty]


"from dirt roads and street corners... to CMT Nashville" Autobiography "Iridescent Poppies and Lollipop Mommies"

Aculturated in the rich desert heritage of Arizona and northern Mexico (Sonora and Chihuahua), the native sounds of Mariachi, norteno, and Marty Robbins echo in George McClure's music, as well as his childhood classical and world music. George started playing professionally in Arizona and New Mexico bars and clubs, playing banjo and bass.

"We couldn't get off the stage without playing a few Bob Wills and Texas swing numbers", George says. "And we had a guy in our band who grooved on all the swing. The complex chords and structures thrilled me."

A little later in Carolina an old black bluesman who toured with Lightnin' Hopkins took an interest in George and showed him guitar. This amalgam became the core of George's music.

George lived in Nashville 25 years, touring 1500 shows with his McClure's America and the Matadors and where he built McClure & Trowbridge Publishing, a successful music company. As independent producer, he recorded 50 albums and artist masters for others, and 5 albums of his own.

McClure is also a poet and author! Visit George on george mcclure.net (official sanctioned dossier.)




George went pro here (Tucson AZ), where he wrote "Mass Grass",
as well as polyphonic classical works. He transcribed Vivaldi's
Violin Concerto in Am for acoustic ensemble and co-founded the Salt River Ramblers.
