Dara Maclean drops “Suitcases” ahead of debut release

Her debut album doesn’t even release for three weeks, but new artist Dara Maclean is already making a significant mark on the music scene with the hit single “Suitcases.” It’s just a taste of what listeners can expect from the July 12th Fervent Records release of You Got My Attention, produced by Dove Award-winner and Christian music veteran Ian Eskelin.

Maclean wrote or co-wrote all 12 of the tracks on the album and will be taking her soulful pop style on the road for over 100 shows through the spring of next year. The Fort Worth, Texas, native has been singing at the age of eight and has since led worship and been actively involved in youth ministry.

Check out a video of “Suitcases” below:

Norman Hutchins looks forward to seventh solo album

Tomorrow marks the release of If You Didn’t Know, Now You Know, the seventh album for gospel artist and preacher Norman Hutchins. The project continues to share pieces of Hutchins’ engaging story, which includes a past bout with blindness and issues with his estranged father.

Much of the album came from his recent experiences leading worship in the church.

“While we were singing, God dropped these lyrics in the atmosphere,” Hutchins said in his latest bio. “We would start out with a familiar song that everybody knew and somehow in the midst of singing I would hear another melody. Words would just begin to drop in the atmosphere and I would look at the keyboard player and tell him to follow me.”
