Marc Mclean
Journalist – What is your name and what city do you rep?
My name is Marc Mclean, I was born and raised in Jamaica, but I currently live in New Jersey.
Journalist -Tell us about your latest releases, what inspired you to create them?
I just released my first single “Lonely”, it’s based on a thought a had during a rough time with my lady. Basically telling myself to “Get my sh*t together”.
Journalist – What is unique about you and your music?
The music I create is a compilation of all the sounds I’ve absorbed to date. From the sounds of Reggae and Danchall that I was raised on, to the sounds I heard later in life from Jazz to Hiphop.
Journalist – When did you realize you were going to make music professionally?
I have been preforming professionally for the last six years in a cover band. On larger stages (stadiums,large halls etc..) hearing the roar of welcome and appreciation for my artistry, I was hooked.
Journalist – What type of music do you listen to?
I know everyone says this but, I truly make a conscious effort to listen to everything. Currently however, I’ve been listening to a lot of Anderson Paak(including the silk sonic releases), Bj the Chicago kid, Baby Rose, Louis and the Yakuza  and Chris Stapleton.
Journalist – What inspires you to write music?
Well in my eyes I have no choice. Writing as a whole is a means by which I process life. When things are over whelming,when they’re underwhelming, I’m happy or overly stressed.
Journalist – What do you do when you don’t do music (creative or otherwise) and that you are passionate about?
I am a father to a beautiful 3yr old daughter. So when I’m not a t work or creating I am taking care of her.
Journalist – What do you wish you were told when you first started making music that you think would help artists just starting out?
Don’t let the fun die. With all the information we have a access to these days it’s easy to forget that this is what brings you joy. It almost seems like you get sucked into the “work” it takes to be an artist. None of the stars we know and loved started where we saw them, it took time to get good at what brought them joy and it will for you as well.
Journalist – Where do we find you music / music projects?
You can find my first single on All major platforms
Spotify, Apple music, YouTube etc…

Gucci Gordy

Q. Who is Gucci Gordy? Gucci Gordy is the mmelinum version of Barry Gordy of Motwn.

Q. How’d you get into the music industry to begin with? I started in St Louis, and it started out as a hobby.

Q. Why would an artist get dropped from a major label? Does it all just come down to the bottom line? An artist would get dropped by not meeting expectations versus the risk of the investment. It does because labels lose a lot of money because they spend money frivolously and if an artist don’t recoup their money, they get dropped. Major Labels spend money differently and artist are left to recoup. Any artist would have to have an upward trajectory.

Q. I constantly hear incredibly impressive singing talents in places like the rice houses in St. Louis or even street corners in Detroit … why don’t some people get discovered while other less talented people do? Because they work harder. If it’s meant to happen, it will happen.

Q. Which is more important for musician’s success: talent or marketability? Both

Q. How important is seeing a band play live in deciding whether to sign them? Important because you get to see the full package from their stage presence, crowd interaction, and crowd likability.

Q. How do A&R’s search for new talent these days? Word of mouth and research on all social media platforms.

Q. How do you stay organized in such a vast industry? Repeating the same protocol, creating a curriculum and staying consistent by creating a regime and sticking to the process.

Q. What was the most recent signing that you were a part of? I signed Leeky G Bando, artist based out of New York, Chris Echols, and Destineeee Lynn.

Q. Where can the world follow you? @guccigordy

Q. What’s next for you in the music world? As an executive, my next move is scaling the business up by diversifying my portfolio by signing labels and international artist.
