Tom MacLear   •  Former Music Industry Ghost writer turned Solo Artist:  Tom MacLear has finally found flight after a 30 year career in
the 'back room corporate world' of writing his songs for some of the biggest names in the industry.

With his steady flow of hit radio releases since 2010, he has topped numerous charts and radio playlists in Country, HOT/AC and Alternative genres alike_ Making him a new hot commodity in this world of cookie-cutter music packages of late. 

Tom is a living legacy of the Southern California Country Rock Boom of the '70s.  MacLear transplanted rolls from his work with British artists in the '70s & 80s while residing in Los Angeles during the historic formative years of the L.A. Country Rock Boom.  MacLear was a Ghost Writer, Producer, Multi-Instrumentalist and touring artist for or with such acts as Emmylou Harris' Hot Band, The Burrito Brothers, Nitty Gritty Dirt Band and many others.


  The Band 
Renee DiSisto  •  Singer-Songwriter Renee DiSisto was born and raised in New Rochelle, New York.  DiSisto is an alumni of Berklee College of Music. Since her move to Los Angeles, she has recorded original works in a duo project with her twin sister Michele, entitled: 'SISTER' and has since found her way on stage performing with numerous acts throughout the Hollywood/SoCal Club and Concert scene.  DiSisto is a touring and recording member of the Alternative/Nashville group TOM MACLEAR & FRIENDS. Her first vocal gig with the act was on Tom MacLear's award winning national single release 'Unapproachable.' DiSisto's edgy yet vulnerable vocal styles bring comparisons of Sheryl Crow and Miranda Lambert, but Renee DiSisto is unmistakeably her own artist and clearly exudes her own style which gives her a fresh new road to pave within her own brand and sound. 

DiSisto is currently under contract/development with MEG/Records to pen and record her own material for release this year.
