Eccentric songsmith and rapper Heath McNease releases new album
RAPPER and singer/songwriter Heath McNease, who last year released three
independent albums, has put out 'Thrift Store Jesus', which he
describes as his "most mature" work to date. Said McNease, "With every
release I've tried to take another step in my evolution as an artist.
I've never been interested in 'changing my style' or 'reinventing'
what it is I do, because for a vast majority of my audience. . .it's
tough to pinpoint exactly what it is I'm doing in the first place.
It's tough for me sometimes too. But what truly makes this album stand
apart is that, for all intents and purposes, it will be the first
predominantly hip hop record I've ever created that is almost
completely joke free. There are just a few moments of levity on this
album." The opinions expressed in this article are
