McCREI are a new British female duo made up of sisters Leanne and Shannon McCree. They started singing seriously together in 2012 on the Camden live circuit. In less than three years they’ve played over 250 gigs including prestigious spots at the O2 Academy and Liverpool’s famed Cavern.
Last year they recorded a number of tracks with producer Alan Glass. One of the tunes, ‘I’m Missing You’ eventually ended up on the soundtrack to the movie ‘Last Round’.
Another of the tunes, ‘Show Me’ has just been picked up by DSG Music. Label boss, Gary Van den Bussche heard the tune on the radio and recognised something in it that reminded him of the great days of soul and disco and had master mixer Nigel Lowis play around with it. The result is an almost 7 minutes worth of easy-on-the-ear dance music built around a loping Chic style bass line and , yes, in best Lowis tradition, there’s also a whiff of Philly to it. DSG are simply calling it ‘Modern Retro’.
You can make up your own minds when the tune…. ‘Show Me’ by McCrei is officially released on June 8th.
