McCrei are two sisters from the UK who express their experiences and observations on life through their own song writing.
The sister duo was formed in the second half of 2012, when Shannon and Leanne McCree decided that they would become a song writing partnership and teamed up together, rather than continuing as solo artists.
The sisters cut their teeth live by performing acoustic covers around Camden and Kent and began recording their own material towards the end of 2012. They completed 85 live appearances in 2012 under their former name of Leanne McCree which was changed to McCrei in 2013. Deciding to change the name from Leanne McCree to McCrei was a difficult decision to take but one that they decided was necessary to reflect they are now a duo rather than two solo artists. Unfortunately as there is a band already called McCree in South Africa an adaptation of the band name was derived and McCrei was born. 2013 has seen a busy schedule of gigs for the duo and they have branched out of just London and Kent and have performed in Yorkshire, East Sussex and The West Midlands. McCrei are currently in the early stages of talks which may result in them touring the United States in 2014.
