Care to introduce yourself to our readers?
R McClure & Tall Shadows are a collision of old and new: old-time music reimagined for the modern era. Golden era country, shoegaze, folk, and dream-pop come together in a sound that is both immediately recognizable and singular. In the tradition of great country music, these songs will entertain and uplift you and sometimes break your heart.
Tell us a bit about your music and writing style.
My music is inspired by classic country music of the 1950s & 60s, but I bring a contemporary dimension to the music with elements of dream pop, indie rock, & shoegaze – my other musical loves. The music is simple & direct, with a focus on authentic storytelling and unique production.
Do you have any upcoming shows? For someone who has yet to see you live, how would you explain your live performance?
No shows currently scheduled due to COVID, but there are plans to play shows in the fall. My live performance is best described as a regular hootenanny!
If you were asked to suggest only one of your songs for someone to hear, which would it be?
‘Never Love Me Again’
