You Got My Attention

You Got My Attention

Dara Maclean

At first blush, Dara Maclean can be taken as a Christian answer to the current crop of retro divas popular in the secular market. But this Texas-based singer/songwriter fills her debut album for Word Records with more than just family-friendly versions of familiar R&B and pop sounds. Maclean’s background in church ministry is evident in every track — there’s a solid Biblical grounding to her lyrics that lends weight to her airiest melodies. You Got My Attention’s lead single “Suitcases” nicely sums up the essence of Maclean’s appeal — combining a buoyant hip-hop groove with a call to throw away personal baggage, it feels like a natural summertime hit. The boisterous, country-accented “Nothin’ You Won’t Do” and the horn-driven title track showcase both the sweet tone and the slightly husky edge to Maclean’s vocals. She does equally well with fervent expressions of praise like “Gratitude” and “So Good to Me” and lighter, more wistful numbers like “What Love Looks Like” and “It Had to Be You.”
