The 19th studio album includes a dozen new songs and shows a jazzier side of McClinton, capturing where the revered artist is in his life.

McClinton is a master among Texas music aficionados, rock artists (he gave harp lessons to a young John Lennon), blues experts, and critics alike. Highly respected for the longevity of his career and his ability to meld genres into his own style, he connects with audiences worldwide with his unique blend of blues, country and rock n’ roll. Prick Of The Litter takes it to another notch, showcasing an even wider musical palette to include a diverse offering of Jazz and soul inspired sounds. All of the 12 songs on the album were written or co-written by McClinton, and the collection captivates with a strong, synchronized energy that radiates from McClinton’s collaboration with Self-Made Men and their thousands of miles, and experience performing shows all over the world throughout the years.

Prick Of The Litter, recorded with the support of McClinton’s working band, Self-Made Men, includes; Bob Britt (guitar), Kevin McKendree (keyboards), Mike Joyce (bass), Jack Bruno (drums) and Quentin Ware (trumpet). The chemistry of this group of musicians, the best band he’s ever had according to McClinton, is on full display on this album. Prick Of The Litter was co-produced by McClinton, McKendree and Britt who also jointly contributed to co-writing over half the new songs on the album.
