New Album To Be Released Next Week
Los Angeles-based singer-songwriter-pianist Maggie McClure just had one of her songs, “Reset,” featured on the TBS comedy “Cougar Town” during the episode (entitled "Hard On Me") which aired Tuesday, February 4th. “Reset” is the opening track from McClure’s forthcoming album, Time Moves On, which is set for release on February 11, 2014, on her own label.  A majestic and atmospheric album of her most intimate songwriting, Time Moves On was produced by Justin Glasco (Dan Wilson, Tyler Hilton, Gary Jules, Margaret Cho, Adrianne Gonzalez, Garrison Starr and Cary Brothers).
“My songs are basically excerpts from my journal edited to fit the music,” Maggie says. “I write songs straight from my soul.”  The stately “Reset” patiently unfolds with subtle power; mixing sweetly mournful textures with sublime hooks. Its feel is melancholy but tenderly hopeful—it’s a song about new beginnings. Here Maggie sings: There’s so much on my mind, I’m just tryin to get it right/Lost in all this information, the answers are so hard to find/We’ve made mistakes before, by closing open doors/Can we just start over, Is it too late to start over?
Time Moves On is ethereal and expansive, with achingly gorgeous vocals, moody guitars, and playfully quirky keyboard touches.  The album chronicles her move from Norman, Oklahoma to Los Angeles to further pursue her music career, and a new and empowered outlook on life based on being brave enough to seek out and embrace a centered existence.  Time Moves On follows a self-titled album, two EPs, and a handful of singles.
McClure plans to tour in support of Time Moves On, with an album release show set in Oklahoma City at the Will Rogers Theatre on February 21st, another album release show in her newly-adopted hometown of Los Angeles at Hotel Café on March 15th, and shows in San Diego (LeStat’s on February 28th) and San Francisco (Hotel Utah on March 9th). 
Early praise for Time Moves On from the press:
-         “Intensely personal, ‘Time Moves On’ draws us in with a sound so pure and flawless, it is difficult to believe that the words could carry anything other than dreams of success, but the pain is undeniably there; it is a beautiful dichotomy.” – Innocent Words
-         “…solid hooks, pure vocals, and sweet lyrics that teeter on the edge of pop while holding tight to alternative compositions…” – The Music Rag
McClure’s gift for confessional songwriting that’s broad appealing has enabled her music to garner plum synch placements. Her songs have appeared in the film Cowgirls N' Angels, and in such television shows asDr. PhilThe Real WorldWorst Prom EverThe HillsThe CityThe Vineyard, and The Young And The Restless. As a performer, she’s done a staggering 750+ shows across the United States—on separate occasions opening for Sara Bareilles and Tony Lucca.  She sang the National Anthem at the first NBA playoff game in Oklahoma history with more than 18,000 people in attendance. 
Additionally, McClure has been knocking on different doors of the entertainment business to further her music career.  She was a featured background extra on Matthew Morrison's (Mr. Schu in Glee) music video for “It Don't Mean A Thing,” and she is currently singing the role of Violetta on the English version of Disney Channel Latin America's Violetta that is airing in the UK and across the globe.
A major factor of McClure’s success has been her hardworking nature. She is completely independent, and assumes the roles of label, booking agent, and manager. “I’m a true believer that if you want something to happen, you have to make it happen.”
