LOVE SONGS & OTHERS STRANGERs
Eclectic Miami-based label Essential Media Group is excited to announce the release of a new five-song EP from singer/songwriter JUSTIN McGUINN. The EP’s first single, “My Heart Is Where You Are,” was released in June and it and the EP are available on iTunes. Check out the video here.
About signing with Essential, Minnesota native McGuinn told the St. Cloud Times that “They seemed to be the most open to really putting something together by working together, and they do a lot with distribution, which is really great for an artist,” he said. “They’re an independent label with a longer reach. It’s good, as an artist, so you don’t get lost with larger labels.”
Possessed with an almost chameleon like vocal ability, McGuinn’s style harkens back to the great pop vocal icons of the 60’s and 70’s such as Paul McCartney and Brian Wilson. At the tender age of 34, McGuinn is already a seasoned veteran of the Minnesota music scene, fronting a family band with his older brothers when he was only 17, and sharing the stage with such luminaries as rocker Joan Jett, 60’s pop icon Bobby Vee, acclaimed rock band Soul Asylum and many others on tours throughout the Midwest, New York and Los Angeles. The new five-song EP reveals a fully developed songwriter with great pop sensibilities buoyed by an intriguing voice and golden tone. McGuinn will be one to watch in 2017.
