McClarney’s unique gift of leading people to experience the power of Jesus has not gone unnoticed, with many critics highlighting him and the album by saying:
“At the instance of a first listen, your heart and soul will not be able to turn loose of these great new worship songs.” – LifeWay’s Worshiplife
“McClarney writes and performs these songs of praise and adoration so naturally that it will inspire many to join in and surrender all to the One who is worthy.” – NewReleaseToday
“If you are looking for a worship record that exudes a holy awe that comes from a singer who throws in his heart and soul in worship, look no farther than McClarney’s Everything and Nothing Less.” – Hallels
“[This record] provides thoughtful...worship tracks delivered with passion, praise, and authenticity.” – Soul-Audio
This past May McClarney joined Chris Quilala and the Jesus Culture band on a European tour and performed to more than 30,000 people. Making tour stops in Belfast, Dublin, Helsinki and Holland, they also participated in West Sussex's Big Church Day Out, which is one of the UK's largest annual Christian events. At Big Church Day Out, McClarney led worship alongside Quilala and special guest Martin Smith for more than 23,000 people in the English countryside on the Wiston Estate.
Chris McClarney is well known for writing the powerful worship anthem, “Your Love Never Fails,” which has become one of the most popular songs in churches across America as reported in the Top 25 of Christian Copyright Licensing International (CCLI).
