Whitney McClain releases new video for “Cruise”!

SHARE

Singer-Songwriter Whitney McClain has released the video for her new single Cruise! Her latest track is off her upcoming second EP, to be released via Gold Dust LLC. Co-written with Marlon McClain II, Davi Jordan and Ralph Stacy, the song is set over a simmering beat with her voice and charm on full display accompanied by guitar licks and horn tones. “I wanted to create a record that pushed positivity and hope that, no matter how bad it might seem, we can always work through it if we love one another.” Cruise explains. “Darkness can’t exist in the presence of light. Later, it developed into a love song, but I still think it holds true to the original message.”

This Oregon-native comes from a musical family as her uncle, Marlon McClain, is the former leader and guitarist for the 80’s funk/rock/R&B/jazz band Pleasure. She credits him with inspiring and guiding her to release her first single at 21. “I have such fond memories of singing and putting on little shows for my family when I was a kid,” she says. “Even during some very difficult times, it was music that soothed my soul and helped me to heal”. McClain’s trials included two brain surgeries that she had in the 5th and 7th grades. With love and support from her family and her faith in God, she fully recovered and headed off to the University of Texas in the music hotbed of Austin. In 2015, her debut single Bombs Away garnered over a million views on YouTube. In 2016, she released her EP Nothing To Lose, which spawned three singles that each hit the million views mark. Her success ultimately lead to a nomination from the Independent Music Awards for Urban EP of the Year. She lives by a creed of hark work and thankfulness as she continues to ascend the ladder. “I know that being an artist requires a lot of hard work, time and patience, but I am ready” she says. “I want to share my story and my music in hopes it will touch people and inspire them to overcome the hard times that come up in life. I am proof that dreams do come true!”
