Steven McCann debuts new project rvstless with the yearning pop-funk of ‘Wanna Be Free’


Rvstless is the new project from Steven McCann, who you may recognise from the big band funk and soul pop act TooFools.

It’s an R&B and soul project which flourished in our locked down world in the past year while McCann was on a break from working with artists like Melina Malone, Phil Coulter, Booka Brass and Ralph Rolle (CHIC).

‘Wanna Be Free’ is the first single from this project’s first EP and it’s a song that yearns for the freedom that may come soon, set to a Jungle-esque production.

‘Wanna Be Free’ is completely inspired by the current situation in Ireland. Everyone is essentially stuck in their particular county (Dublin), only allowed travel 5km & this song just represents wanting to live life and be free of very tough restrictions. It was fully recorded, written, mixed & mastered in my home studio to give people some hope for the future ahead!

IH hoped to capture the innocence of ‘normal life’s before the pandemic hit. Thanks to all my friends for letting me use clips from years ago when we lived a ‘normal life’ & to my ma & da for their dance moves. Stay positive
