On Friday, August 5th, veteran acclaimed guitarist, songwriter, producer, artist manager, and entrepreneur Marlon McClain will release his new full length project “Funky Fridays Vol. II” which includes 3 collaborations featuring New York based MC and lyricist BD3.. Their 3 collaborations “Aint No Stoppin” and “Get Down” and I Want Your Love have garnered over 600,000 streams and have been on over 500 playlists.

“Funky Friday’s” also contain a couple of energetic jazz funk guitar stompers “ML Funk” featuring Randy Scott on saxophone and “Let;s Go”and Marlon on vocoder. Both would fit comfortably on many funk, soul, dance and uptempo jazz playlists.

There is a subtle but clear theme of positivity and optimism throughout the project especially noted on the previously released singles “It’s a Gift” featuring Nathaniel Star on vocals and “Funkin Cause We Wanna” featuring Marlon on vocals. Both stand out even more in the context of the full album.

This album which combines a seamless fusion of funk, soul, hiphop and uptempo jazz is a perfect mid-summer release. This is a feel good project, which is exactly what we all need now.
