The McGrath Project announces a new record and world tour!

DALLAS, Texas -- The McGrath Project, a Texas-based indie rock band on 4818 Records, is ready to hit the road in 2021. Along with dates set at the First Friday Festival in Las Vegas and The Viper Room in Los Angeles, the McGrath Project is particularly excited to announce some international highlights. In late June the band will be playing the Rock Bulava Festival in Kiev, Ukraine and famous Dobro Festival in Moscow along with a series of engagements throughout the Ukraine and Russia.

"We will be doing fifteen concerts in seventeen days and I couldn't be more excited," says Jonathan McNary, guitarist.

"Music festivals have always been one of my favorite sorts of shows to play, because i usually run into a new artist I might not have otherwise heard. This will be especially true as we head to Eastern Europe," Bob Simmons, bassist, agrees.

"I love playing the originals and I'm really looking forward to bringing them to the festivals," added Victor Toruno, keyboardist.

"People can expect good time full of rocking music and fun energy," says drummer Jonathan Moore. "We will put on a fun show. It's full of variety, flavors, and excitement."

To help promote the Eastern European tour, the band will be releasing a new record entitled, "Golden Goose" in March 2021 under 4818 Records and distribution through Smith Music Group. Although there will be quite a few familiar songs on this record, "we decided to re-cut everything so that the record represents the current line up and sound of the band. People will get to take home what they saw live or come see what they hear, whichever comes first," says Gary McGrath, guitarist and frontman.

"Gary likes to let musicians play around and experiment. It really makes it a fun process and I think it makes the songs better," notes Kathryn Hackett, vocalist.

As they put the finishing touches on the new record, be sure to check out @TheMcGrathProject on Instagram and Facebook for warm-up dates around the country!

New Ballad of Love Brings ‘Hope’ for Mother’s Day

FORT WORTH, Texas -- 4818 Records, LLC today announced that as we prepare to honor women everywhere on Mother's Day 2017 Sunday, May 14, a beautiful new ballad titled "Never Let Me Go" has been released as a single and video to benefit the Susan G. Komen Foundation of Greater Fort Worth.

"Never Let Me Go" is the first single from "Hope," the compilation album promoting the 2017 "Race for the Cure" fundraiser for the Fort Worth chapter on April 22.

Singer/songwriter/guitarist and Grammy Award-winning producer Gary McGrath wrote and recorded "Never Let Me Go" for "Hope," which he compiled and has just released on his independent 4818 Records label.

The album features songs by Danny Wright, Elizabeth Wills, The Dorothy Shaw Bell Choir, and The Texas State Men & Boys Choir, of which McGrath serves as executive director and producer. In addition to "Never Let Me Go," McGrath contributed "Sunsets In Santa Monica" as well.

McGrath, who accompanies his heartfelt vocals with acoustic guitars on "Never Let Me Go," gets tastefully understated accompaniment by bassist Eric Delegard, percussionist Luis Conte, accordion player Phil Parlapiano, and background vocalist Deborah Buffington.

All the musicians are present or past members of The McGrath Project, the contemporary classic rock band McGrath leads that earned a gold record for their 2010 album "Love Is a Four Letter Word."

McGrath also produced a companion video for "Never Let Me Go," which amassed more than 4,500 views just in its first three days.

Directed, shot, and edited by Dustin Meyer for Motion Fire Media and Dustin Meyer Photography, the video intercuts footage of McGrath singing and playing acoustic guitar with footage of model Gabriella Bryan.

"The chorus is me singing about the love of my life and about the little things she does that make me, or would make anybody, just swoon," McGrath said. "Simple things, like how she welcomes the day or the way she sips her morning coffee. When you're in love, you love everything your significant other is and does."

As to the reception of "Never Let Me Go," McGrath admits he was caught by surprise at the early response.

"I am so glad that it has been so well-received and so many people are sharing it," he said. "It's a message everyone and their mother can love this Mother's Day."
