                                    Tom MacLear signs 3 year deal with OPUS ONE ARTIST SERIES. 

                                     'Tom MacLear is a world-class country musician, songwriter and producer.  His
                                     seasoned creative chops have led him to write for such greats as Brad Paisley and
                                     Annie Lennox while his sheer talent and musicianship have had him touring with
                                     The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band and Emmy Lou Harris.

                                     All of MacLear's talents have culminated in the production of his newest studio
                                     album. It features male and female vocalists as well as a peppering of other talented
                                     musicians conducted around Tom's signature slide guitar playing.  Although Tom
                                     is an established multi-stylist with the ability to blend many genres together, his
                                     country roots and rock influences are certainly the focus of this album.  Tom MacLear's
                                     music is nothing but a genuine foray into country-rock sounds paired masterfully
                                     with classically great songwriting.'

                                    I have a feeling will be growing sky high in the years to come.  It’s safe to say that Tom MacLear’s
