Mike McClellan Live at Leura
Come and enjoy the talents of one of Australia’s finest songwriters, Mike McClellan. For over 4o years he has managed to retain huge respect in an ever-changing industry. Still today he receives rave reviews and standing ovations.
"Singer, songwriter and guitarist extraordinaire, Mike McClellan left an audience at Her Majesty’s in no doubt that he is one of this country's finest talents."
Mike Seccombe, Brisbane Courier Mail
When Song and Danceman was released in 1974 Mike McClellan was already an established performer on the acoustic music scene. That song topped the charts bringing him national recognition and a following that has remained loyal to his highly personal brand of music for almost 40 years. For those who had already experienced his talent his first hit single did no more than reinforce what they already knew: that he was one of the best songwriters to emerge from this country in many years and among its most talented singer/guitarists.
2011 saw the release of his first album of new songs in 20 years. In reviewing it for Country Update Pat Drummond called it "a stunning new CD. In the context of a long and illustrious career this is a very special album.... for one of Australia's most influential country/folk legends."
And with the release last year of his latest album Dancing In The Rain, both new albums undoubtedly sustain the exceptional quality of his much-loved early work, while richly reflecting his growth as a writer, and ample testimony to Mike's enduring talent.
