The album Reesonz has 11 amazing tracks that you should not miss. But there is so much more in this album, so we asked the man behind the music David McLorren what this album represents to him ?

This album Reesonz is a coming of age album for me. Each song represents a reason for being who I am and really being okay with that, as well as a soundtrack for people to be introspective with in finding their own reasons.

Making an album is hard work, and it has his own process, and David explained it to us in a great way.

There’s not a set process for the creative process for me as in a formula. Each song is inspired by life and the need to communicate what words sometimes can’t accomplish. I composed all the track and had collaborators like Sam Hankins (Trumpet), Sarai Usry (On Vocals) Matt Wilson (Guitar) & Demetrice Everett (Drums) bring their flavor to the track. I don’t director my collaborators creative genius I simply allow them to bring what they have to the table and it gels. Then I take my time to mixed it down, listening in several atmospheres & setting to get that sweet spot in sounds.

Every album has his own flow, and McLorren gave us the answer what makes this album different from his previous.

Reesonz is different because I am different, my experience and growth helped shaped the musical content. Reesonz has more of a deeper connection because maturity was in my craft imitates the maturation of my life.Reesonz

It’s hard to describe something in one sentence, but we were curious, and asked David how he would describe the album Reesonz?

Reesonz is a smooth musical buffet to satisfy the musical taste buds, while offering deeper introspection and inspiration.

To be and great artist, you need motivation, this is how David McLorren does it.

It stems from a Childhood where my Mom and Dad instilled in us that we can do anything if we set our minds to it and applied ourselves. I am a student of life, if I don’t know I will go searching to find the answers and I don’t minds learning from others or sharing what I learn. My motivation is knowing that in some way music heals and that my music is a small part of making the world a little better._DSC2396

The love for jazz is a strange thing, and there always has to be one or more favourite jazz musicians.

I love Jazz because it’s a freeing art form. It allows for expression and individuality. It incorporates multiple genres, cultures and could be enjoyed by anyone allowing the imagination roam free. My Favorite Jazz Musicians/Artist Dave Brubeck the way we broke all sort of barriers in his music and how he got inspiration from anything & anywhere. And of course other like Charlie Parker, Max Roach, Louis Armstrong, Ella Fitzgerald, Miles Davis, to name a few.

And at the end he told us what is the most important thing he learned on the jazz scene this past years.

I’ve learn to be myself musically, don’t try to fit the formula, build on what those artists who came before us did, and respect the art and others. - Milena Staniskovska
