Album: Fleeting is the Time
Release Date: June 8, 2016
Genre: Blues/ Soul
Khari Wendell McClelland, originally from Detroit was raised on gospel, soul and Motown music. He is now a Vancouver based artist that worked in a spiritual gospel called The Sojourners. He has been touring, opening for Lauryn Hill at several jazz festivals and you can hear the jazz influence on his debut solo album Fleeting is the Time. This offering features six tracks, that incorporates a mix of the music he was raised on in Detroit. The opening track “Roll On” is a great gospel influenced tune. “Damned” is more of an acoustic bluesy track. “While Sinking” and “My Time Ain’t Long” are two upbeat blues/ soul songs and then going at a bit faster speed is the title track “Fleeting is the Time” , which can only be described as a blues/rock song. This artist has been able to mix many styles, creating a style that becomes his own.
I fell in love with live shows when I saw my first concert at 8 years old
and it is love affair that has been going on 42 years.
I started writing for two Canadian music magazines in order to write and photograph the great live music scene that was going on around me. I enjoy Blues, indie- rock, motown and old fashioned rock and roll from the 50s to 70s. I will go to intimate house concerts, local clubs and the way to big arenas to see good live music. When not at a show, I will be at home in my garden listening to my latest acquired album.
