Music Artists for December 2016: Maggie McClure + Shane Henry

About Maggie McClure
The Norman, Okla-bred singer/songwriter/pianist Maggie McClure has spent a good amount of her career placing her songs on TV shows such as “Dr. Phil”, “Cougar Town”, “The Real World”, “The Vineyard”, and “The Hills”, as well as in feature films like Oklahoma rebate film “Cowgirls N’ Angels”. Her smooth, confessional songwriting has made her a natural for these formats. She currently spends half her time in Oklahoma and the other half in Los Angeles. McClure has performed more than 1000 shows throughout her career in over 40+ states in the U.S. at iconic venues such as The Hotel Cafe in Los Angeles to Rockwood Music Hall in NYC, and everywhere in between. Her original piano-driven songs empower and inspire listeners with a positive message of hope, love, and faith. McClure’s third and newest album, Time Moves On, produced by Justin Glasco, whose work includes Dan Wilson (songwriter of Adele’s hit “Someone Like You”), Gary Jules and Tyler Hilton, chronicles her move from Oklahoma to L.A. It centers on the mental and physical bravery it takes to push yourself in an unknown city and make people pay attention and convince them to be part of your dream. McClure has recently opened for Sara Bareilles, Alicia Witt, Walk Off The Earth, Tony Lucca and others. Additionally, you can hear her singing on ABC Family/Freeform’s “The Mistle-Tones”, as well as Disney’s “Violetta”, where she sang the English role of Violetta for Season 1 now airing worldwide on the Disney Channel. You can catch her singing on an American Girl / Megabloks National Commercial now airing on TV networks such as Disney Channel and Nikelodeon. McClure also had the privilege of singing the National Anthem at the very first NBA playoff game in Oklahoma history with more than 18,000 people in attendance.

About Shane Henry
Shane Henry, singer/songwriter/guitarist originally from small town Verden, Oklahoma, and now splitting time between Oklahoma and LA, began his musical journey at age 19 when he played 30 national dates on the B.B. King Festival Tour opening for B.B. King. He then signed with noteworthy indie label Shanachie Records, and with fellow musicians Double Trouble (Stevie Ray Vaughan’s band), Kenny Wayne Shepherd and Kevin Bowe, Henry’s album, Deliverance, was recorded and distributed in stores nation-wide. Shane’s musical style has evolved over the years from a heavy blues-influenced style to what is now an eclectic blend of rock, soul, blues and pop. Listeners compare his sound to Lenny Kravitz, The Black Keys and Gary Clark Jr. Henry has opened for many notable acts such as Etta James, The Neville Brothers, Jonny Lang, Doyle Bramhall II, Edwin McCain, Joe Bonamassa, Johnny Winter, Grand Funk Railroad and many others. He is currently playing shows across the country, from national festivals to popular venues and events. Henry’s new album, Light in the Dark, which was fan-funded via Kickstarter, will be released in April 2017. Many TV shows including “The Young and The Restless” and “Running Wild with Bear Grylls” plus feature films such as “Approaching the Unknown” (starring Mark Strong and Luke Wilson) are presently featuring Henry’s original music.

McClure and Henry tour, write, record and work together often. The dynamic duo has performed hundreds, if not thousands, of shows together nationwide, including their performance of the Official Holiday Halftime Show and the National Anthem at Madison Square Garden for the NY Knicks in December 2015. You can hear their original holiday single “First Thing on My Christmas List” in rotation on Magic 104.1 during the holiday season.

“Shane and I both began our careers in Oklahoma over a decade ago, and we met through the amazing and supportive local music scene. The Oklahoma music scene truly helped shape our lives. Wherever our travels and careers take us, Oklahoma is and always will be home,” said McClure.
