Mac Cormack recently released the official music video for “Give A Chance.”
“My main goal was to make a song that could have African ternary rhythm to create a trance in concert” explains Mac Cormack “The text is about the birth and death of relationships. The necessary abandonment when the seasons change and it is time to take new paths. There is no shortcut for these things. We have to cross them.”
Mac Cormack’s new album, Now is an eclectic gathering of his musical talents and visions. From “Stay” to “Passageway,” each song on this album is unique. Mac Cormack’s vocals are almost haunting on each track. Capturing you both musically and imaginatively, you can’t help but almost feel the music. I imagine that while creating the music that Mac Cormack’s process was original and organic. I listened to the album a few times, and each listen discovered something new that I liked about the album. From the beautiful lyrics and tempo of “Sunday” to listening to “Hurricane” over and over again, I enjoyed the album.

Music has touched my soul since day one. Whether it is performing or sitting down with some of the biggest names in music, I can always be found sharing my profoundly tender affection of music with anyone who will listen. Being a music journalist has allowed me to expand my knowledge of music and interact with some of my biggest childhood heroes. From days of radio broadcasting to sitting back, kicking off my cowboy boots and sharing my adventures with likeminded music fans online has been nothing short of amazing. Canada is full of true musical talent and I look forward to continuing to share my adventures in music with you.
