Maggie McClure returns to metro for CD release party

(Continued)

NORMAN —

Nearby Eagle Rock Studios was selected as the delivery room for McClure’s new CD baby.

“It’s only 20 minutes from our house so it was easy to go there any time,” she said. “My previous projects involved going to Dallas for one and Nashville for the other, each for two weeks at a time.”

This go around the work was spread over a couple of months with time to listen to each song intently and make changes as necessary.

“It was a really good experience in terms of being eye-opening and as a way to get new music out for people to listen to,” she said.

Glasco engineered the disc as well as playing instruments. Shane Henry, Brandon Walters, Steve Miller and Christopher Wray all played guitars for the recording. The “Time Moves On” name refers to McClure’s current focus on adapting to and thriving on change.

“Whether things are positive or negative you have to cope with it and move forward,” she said. “The title sums it up and is a good representation of all the songs on the album.”

On the CD case’s back cover (art design by Jesse Owen of Oklahoma City) there’s a photo of pretty McClure holding a time piece necklace and gazing resolutely into the camera lenses. She said the little round watch stays set to Central Standard Time as a reminder of her Oklahoma roots. It’s also a reference to track no. 8 titled “Central Time” about that very watch and their move to the Golden State.

“I’m strong enough to stand in California underneath these sunny skies/ But my heart’s in Oklahoma/ Not letting go of Central Time,” McClure sings on the record.

The “Time Moves On” CD release party will be a full band performance with Shane Henry opening.
