Musical depth and Christian joy have rarely come together as compelling as they do in the music of Dara Maclean. Hers is a joyful mix of pop idioms and eternal truths, danceable beats and the good news. “I love making music you can move and groove to,” she says, “but at the same time, as a Christian artist, we have a responsibility to speak the truth in love.”
A singer of incredible grace, power and control, as well as a gifted songwriter, Dara has put together, with the help of Dove Award-winning producer Ian Eskelin (Francesca Battistelli, Sidewalk Prophets), a debut CD that is as fresh and vibrant as any in recent years. The project combines the soul and urban pop influences that infuse her musical approach with soaring vocals in service to intelligently uplifting lyrics.
