Fertitta and McClintock

Raised in the port town of Beaumont Texas, these two Forest Park High School mates were always involved in music from an early age. Leaving Beaumont for the big city of Houston, David Fertitta and Steven McClintock performed for the Steak and Ale chain as well as locking in the coveted club gig at the Lion Bar for the famed Galleria Houston Oaks Hotel. It was there Fertitta and McClintock’s unique acoustic sound was formed and their versatile writing skills honed. After a year they decided to head for Los Angeles, where in 1977, the pair quickly signed a publishing deal with Island Music (Lionel Conway) and subsequently a record deal with the legendary Clive Davis and his newly founded label Arista Records. Produced by the multi platinum Canadian producers Fred Mollin and Matthew McCauley celebrating a recent ..1 international hit with Dan Hill (Sometimes When We Touch), it seemed that Fertitta and McClintock were on their way. But as fate would have it, the business took a dramatic musical change into disco followed immediately by new wave and punk leaving Clive Davis and the producers at odds as to what direction to take the talented acoustic balladeers. The record was never released. The duet ended and both went on different musical paths collectively writing songs for movies and TV, commercial jingles and many other recording acts. Starting in the late 1970’s both had extensive cuts as songwriters with such artist as Juice Newton, Lorrie Morgan, Sixwire, Andy Williams, Tiffany, ATC, David Pomeranz, Victoria Shaw, Pat Boone, Diamond Rio, Paul Jefferson, Rose Maddox and dozens of foreign releases. Advance ahead 25 years to a chance meeting between the duo and their former producer Fred Mollin in Nashville at a Canadian industry event. Fred, having gone on to produce America, Eddie Money, Jimmy Webb, Kris Kristofferson to name a few, offered to finish the record that was never released. Fertitta and McClintock were back and on the move. Recording 14 songs in Nashville with some of the finest musicians alive today cutting songs from the past and present, selling out their first three shows in Los Angeles and basically continuing where they left off, this talent vocal duo is primed and ready to finish the job they started back in 1975. They are now seasoned professionals with a vocal sound and original music that rivals anything in the market place today or yesterday.
