Little River Band man George McArdle returns with solo album

THE BASS guitarist with Australia's multi-million selling The Little River Band, George McArdle has been signed to Dream Music Group Australia. 'Stingray' is McArdle's first studio album in over 10 years. The project was recorded with Ern Rose, the Little River Band's sound and mixing engineer, and features songs written and produced by Brisbane-based George over a five-year period. As well as McArdle on bass guitar and fretless bass, it features some of Australia's finest musicians including Stewart Frazer (guitars), David Beck (drums), Sam McNally (keyboards) and Daniel Spirovski (keys and horns).

Said Phil McGee, DMGA's CEO, "Having got to know the person that is George McArdle, I am excited that somebody of this calibre is more excited about the spirituality of his music than what he walked away from many years ago. From world wide recognition to having a season as a pastor, to this album, where George lays bear many parts of his painful past, you can feel the grace of God through these personal stories and his music. There have been too many things come together for this not to be Kairos." CR
