Album Notes
Singer-songwriter John McDonald blends reggae, rock and world music on his first full-length solo project. With the help of Nashville producer and award-winning songwriter Rick Beresford, the result is Right Place, Right Time - a feel good, up-tempo musical fusion that combines tropical instrumentation, world beat rhythms and evocative lyrics tinged with poignant themes.
Recorded both in Pittsburgh PA and Cocoa Beach FL, this collection of songs initiates a new chapter for John, an artist inspired by an improbable concoction of literary and musical influences from the German philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche and French novelist Albert Camus to Paul Simon and Bob Marley.
Listeners hear the tropical, world-beat influence on Lose My Head Come to My Senses, I keep My Feet Moving, Wet Weather, Let the Waters Flow, People Come Into Your Life and Azaa Loo, a spirited homage to the connective, unifying power of music with a West African title meaning “Celebration!” In fact, this track is a global collaboration that prominently features an ensemble of African singers John never actually met in person.
Along with the exquisite styling of St. John, U.S. Virgin Islands native Victor Provost, one of the preeminent steel drum instrumentalists in North America, Pittsburgh guitar virtuoso Dale Cinski and Florida percussionist Kevin Kornicki masterfully record tracks that create a lush soundscape underneath John’s voice.
So what do you get from the post-industrial heartland of America by an artist energized by the flourishing start-up scene and vibrant marketplace of ideas, creativity and entrepreneurship of “The Rust Belt Revival?”
A shot of hard-driving, percussive rock mixed with world-flavored rhythms and a dash of calypso and reggae…John McDonald’s CD Right Place, Right Time.
