Eric Robertson, a popular producer in Provo, has brought together an impressive list of talented vocalists to sing on new, fresh productions of classic Michael McLean songs. The vocalists include some of the top names from the burgeoning Provo music scene, including Elaine Bradley, from Neon Trees, and Ryan Innes, one of the top contestants on NBC's The Voice. Eric grew up listening to Michael McLean songs and still feels a strong connection to them. This album is an effort to pay tribute to those songs and produce them in a way that will speak to a younger generation of LDS youth.

  1. Hold On, the Light Will Come feat. Scott Shepard
  2. Give a Little Bit of Yourself feat. Catherine Leavy

Well, this is definitely a different take and feel on ten Michael McLean songs. I listened to Michael McLean over and over when I was younger and absolutely love his music! I wasn't a huge fan the first time I listened to this CD, so I listened to it again and again. And the music has grown on me. I still love the original songs but feel that these versions will resonate more with the younger generation and create more Michael McLean fans!

I'm excited to be able to give away a CD to one lucky winner so be sure to enter below!
