Michaela McClain / Press

“She and her band had a friendly conversation with the people who helped them load in their gear, played a strong set, and were ready to call it a day when they received an unexpected offer: a spot on the mainstage”

“With her rich mezzo-soprano voice, accompanying herself at the piano, singing songs about love, Montclairite Michaela McClain might remind you of Carole King or Laura Nyro.”

"Michaela McClain, a teacher at Montclair Cooperative School, won for “Best New Indie Act.”

“Michaela McClain has only been a professional musician for 2 years. Despite being a relative newcomer to the New Jersey music scene, she has been nominated in four categories in this year’s Jersey Acoustic Music (JAM) Awards. McClain scored nominations in the following categories: Top Female Performer, Top Female Songwriter, Top Indie/Pop/Rock Act and Top Indie/Pop/Rock EP/Single.”

“Michaela writes intelligent music, music that’s filled with emotion, heartbreak and joy. Michaela McClain has restored my faith in music. Music is in safe hands, if singers like Michaela McClain are the future of music. That’s why, in the future, people will hear much, much more of Michaela McClain. Quite simply, Michaela McClain has a big future ahead of her in music.”

“Michaela has been singing her whole life and thank God for that. The joy she has brought to people’s lives (MINE especially) is immeasurable. She is breathtaking, kind, full of life, and always smiling… some traits that many of us lose in our day to day lives.”

“If you love music with true heart and soul like I do, you will not be disappointed.”

““Your brain thinks in words. Your soul thinks in music.” I heard that quote from a beautiful, talented musician who is also a great friend of mine. We’ve known each other for years and I’ve watched her grow as an artist and all I can say is WOW. She is epic. She writes from her soul and plays from the very same place. Watching her feels good and hearing her music makes you want to sway and nod your head to the rhythm. Michaela McClain is a true artist because she makes music that means something to her. She makes music that comes from deep inside of her heart and anyone who listens can tell that she is the real deal.”

“Here is a compilation of some quotes from friends/fans.... :)”
