Gary McClure’s music gained him the notoriety and acclaim that performers strive for.

But it wasn’t until recently that McClure created something that made him satisfied with the experience.

After struggling to come up with a follow to his collection of hard-charging and melodic songs, McClure spent a weekend playing his electric guitar and crooning into a microphone hooked up to his laptop. The result was what he calls Son of the Pale Youth, which has a radically different sound than what he’s created in the recent past.
