Artist Biography by

Obscure Arkansas singer-songwriter who cut two (or possibly four) cool, entertaining, and hard-rocking (if slightly formulaic) sides for Joe Leonard's Kliff Records label in 1959. One single from the same label, recorded at the same session and credited to Don Curtis, may also be by McClarey, who also produced the session. "Rock 'n Hall, " "Now I Know, " Rough Tough Man, " and "My Little Girl" were all written by McClarey, and all four are on the 1998 Bear Family Lin & Kliff Story.
