Y&R's Darius McCrary To Release First Album

Darius McCrary has announced the release of his official first album "The Dissertation of Darius McCrary by the D List" today. Now more than ever the eyes of the world are on him as he transforms from a successful Hollywood actor that the world has come to know and love into the talented musician and singer he's destined to be.

With 10 time Grammy Award winning Chaka Khan as the executive producer on this project, McCrary's fans are on the edge of their seats in anticipation of the album's release which is slated for April 12, 2011 and there's already a buzz swirling around the music industry that this album could very well be Grammy nominated.

"This project took a lot of time, hard work, blood sweat and tears to complete but it'll all be worth it when I'm finally able to share the musical gifts that God has given me with the world," said McCrary at a recent interview in Hollywood, CA.

In 2009 McCrary assembled a band (The D List) which consists of five other highly skilled musicians, one of them being his brother, Donovan McCrary. McCrary and his band began hosting "Private Parties" at The Garter, a club tucked away in Venice, CA every Wednesday night in early 2009 to a packed house every week. To date, McCrary's "Private Parties" have become a big hit as McCrary and the D List have been requested and booked to perform at venues around the world.

Inspired by such accomplished artists as Rick James, Michael Jackson, Marvin Gaye, The Beatles, George Clinton, Leon Ware and of course Chaka Khan who also executive produced this album, "The Dissertation of Darius McCrary" will hopefully fill the gap between the soulful sounds of music that our parents and grandparents used to listen to and the music young people listen to today.

"This album will appeal to music lovers everywhere. It's not geared towards one particular targeted audience because I believe that music is a universal language that crosses all barriers regardless of if you're black, white, brown, Puerto Rican, Haitian, young or old. I just wanted to make good music that music lovers would enjoy, that's what this is about for me."

About Chaka Khan, a singer-songwriter who gained fame in the seventies as the front woman and focal point of the funk band Rufus. While still a member of the group in 1978, Chaka Khan embarked on a successful solo career that has now spanned over 30 years. Her signature hits, both with Rufus and solo, include "Tell Me Something Good," "Sweet Thing," "Ain't Nobody," "I'm Every Woman," "I Feel for You" and "Through the Fire."
