DARA MACLEAN MAKES BREAKTHROUGH AT NO. 1 WITH DEBUT ALBUM YOU GOT MY ATTENTION
Fervent Records’ soulful new artist Dara Maclean is unpacking her bags and making a home as Christian music’s breakout artist with her debut album, You Got My Attention, hitting the No. 1 spot on the iTunes Christian Albums chart, No. 45 on the iTunes Overall Albums Chart and soaring into the Christian Soundscan Albums chart. Maclean’s powerful vocals are showcased on her Top 20 debut hit “Suitcases,” an up-beat tune written by Maclean and producer Ian Eskelin about the daily “baggage” that can easily weigh you down.
Maclean grew up outside Fort Worth, Texas, in a family that encouraged her love for music and ministry from her earliest days. She began singing at age 8, then went on to lead worship and actively pursue youth ministry. Maclean continues to serve with her family in their local church. Heavily influenced by Lauryn Hill and everything from the Motown era as well by contemporaries like Adele, Natasha Bedingfield, Marc Broussard and Ray LaMontagne, she incorporates the funk and soul she grew up loving into her music. The combination makes for a sound that is pure celebration, that captures as few artists ever have the joy and exuberance of being swept up in love.
