MARSHALL MCLEAN BAND
Crafting a sound they like to call Northwest Americana rock, the Marshall McLean Band is like a breath of folky, fresh air. At times their music is contemplative and simmering, but then that’s quickly eclipsed by an upbeat, extremely danceable song about the excitement of living. Surrounded by stellar local musicians playing tight licks, McLean’s nuanced and scratchy vocals soar. They were recently voted Best Local Band (original) in the Inlander’s Best Of readers’ poll.
