McCrei Short Info

McCrei were formed in 2012, when the two sisters, Leanne and Shannon McCrei began sharing their experiences through singing and song writing and started gigging on the Camden acoustic circuit. Fast forward three years and the sisters have performed at over 250 gigs including the O2 Academy, The Hope, The Cavern, Distillers, and various other venues throughout England.

McCrei's most recent single 'Show Me' reached Number 2 in the UK Soul Chart in July 2015.

Inspired by an introduction into traditional Soul, Disco and Funk, their music takes some direction while staying true to their signature style. McCrei's musical influences include James Brown, Whitney Houston, Stevie Wonder and Joss Stone.

In December 2014, Leanne and Shannon were introduced to an experienced musician trio consisting of Tom O.Mitchell, Charlotte Whiting and Neil Cornwell who have since become McCrei's backing band for live shows.

"Really powerful vocals girls, really like the voices..........a lot!" Wet Wet Wet's Graeme Clark

"Absolutely blown away by the new music from McCrei"Jude Bumby - Tour Manager

"London may be the epicentre of U.K. politics for now but its music contribution to the four countries has been woefully short over the last 20 years, McCrei have injected some much needed attention to that lack of serious involvement. One to watch out for in the coming 12 months!" Ian D.Hall Liverpool Sound and Vision

"What a voice - so strong! And that's what you need to be on the radio and have hits, they deserve it" David Bash - International Pop Overthrow Festival at The Cavern in Liverpool
