World Premiere Video: Legendary guitarist Marlon McClain gives "Nuthin' But The Funk"

(March 20, 2020) He is a music legend who has worked with a range of artists such as Kenny G., En Vogue, Toni Braxton, George Clinton, George Benson, Brandy, Maurice White and Tower of Power. He is Marlon “The Magician” McClain, a guitarist, producer and  arranger with a history as one of R&B’s best. Marlon was first known as part of the 1970s R&B band Pleasure (remember “Glide”?) and he has been making great music with others ever since.

Marlon has been keeping busy over the past few years, and he is getting ready to release the new EP, Funky Fridays, later this month. In the meantime, he is giving us a taste of the album with the new single, “Nuthin’ But The Funk.” It is the kind of classic funk sound that we love, and the associated video is both fun and funky.

Says Marlon of the Funky Fridays concept, “I’ve been posting guitar jam videos on Facebook for the past four years—mostly on Fridays. I call them ‘Funky Friday’ videos. It’s a way for me to have fun and let the funk out naturally while playing guitar in my home studio. A lot of friends started asking me to make an album, so I decided to create a series of EP’s based on ‘Funky Fridays,’ using the fan responses as inspiration.”
 
The song is accompanied by a hilarious video, featuring a suburban dad who "finds the funk," much to the dismay of his family.
 
We’re proud to have the World Premiere of the video for “Nuthin’ But The Funk,” and we welcome Marlon back to SoulTracks. Check it out below and tell us what you think!
