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