  BEVERLY MCCLELLAN ALBUM RELEASE AND UK TOUR WITH STEVE VAI
18th October 2012



beverley mcclellan



Blues rock powerhouse vocalist Beverly McClellan from smash hit TV show The Voice, USA is set to release her album 'Fear Nothing' in the UK and Europe through Favored Nations on December 1st before embarking on the UK leg of her world tour with guitar virtuoso Steve Vai.

The television show, The Voice introduced her to millions of viewers as a singer of stunning power and range with the presence and ability to draw comparisons to Etta James, Janis Joplin, Bonnie Raitt and Melissa Etheridge, to name just a few of the great torchbearers whose legacies she evokes.

Now McClellan is set to make her debut international release with 'Fear Nothing', an album which presents her as a true and original artist — a songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and dynamic presence with the ability, authority and desire to carve her own place in music history.

McClellan, who is an openly lesbian artist and activist for LGBT charities, believes she has a message: "It's simple: be yourself, love yourself, always be honest, and let the rest come naturally. That's the way I live my life and make my music," she says. And that's the easygoing Zen she applied to the recording of 'Fear Nothing' at Los Angeles' House of Blues studios with producer David Z. (Prince, Fine Young Cannibals, Billy Idol, Buddy Guy).

A soulful rock singer with honest lyrics and a raw sound, Beverly plays over 10 instruments and has already released five independent albums. Originally from Virginia, she's worked the clubs and bars around Fort Lauderdale, Florida for nearly 20 years, always looking for that big break.

Having recorded lead vocals for the song 'John The Revelator' on Steve Vai's 2012 album 'The Story Of Light', McClellan is excited to be bringing her music to the world out on the road with the legendary guitar maestro this autumn.

Beverly McClellan's 'Fear Nothing' [Tour Edition] is released December 1st and will only be available in Europe. This special package contains three never before released bonus tracks.

WACKEN WINTER NIGHTS IS HEAVY METAL WONDERLAND

wacken

Wacken Winter Nights 2018 takes place between February 23rd and 25th 2018 and the great news is that you can now experience a full-on, top class German Metal Festival easily and affordably.

It only takes an hour to fly to Hamburg from London and we've had longer journeys than that within the capital and they were certainly more expensive than the £33 air ticket that just appeared in our 'flights to Wacken Winter Nights' search.

wacken

Wacken Winter Nights is organised by the same team who are responsible for the world's greatest Metal festival, Wacken-Open-Air and the 2018 bill includes Skyclad, Orphaned Land, Elvenking, Finntroll, Grave Digger, Aeverium, Comes Vagantes, Coppelius, Corvus Corax, Die Pressgëng, Elvellon, Heimataerde, Hell-O-Matic, Ignis Fatuu, Ingrimm, Irdorath, Johnny Deathshadow, Krayenzeit, Letzte Instanz, Mr Hurley und die Pulveraffen, Pampatut, Pat Razket, Schandmaul, Sündenrausch, The Aberlour's, The Moon And The Nightspirit, Torfrock, Visions Of Atlantis, Vroudenspil, Wind Rose and more.



Besides this rich billing of superb Metal bands, there is so much more to see in the festival area including the medieval market and also the walking acts and jugglers you will meet at the theme worlds, including Robert Blake, three-time World Cup winner of street magic.

Wacken Winter Nights is something not to be missed and you can check out the amazing ticket and accommodation prices right here.

We just priced up the whole four day trip with hotels, flights, shuttles and festival tickets for less than £300 and we don't think you will get a better value festival than that, anywhere.

MetalTalk recently sat down with Wacken founder and owner Thomas Jensen and that interview will be online next week and it's a fascinating insight into how Wacken originated from nothing to become the world's premiere Heavy Metal event.
