Famous as a founding member of the early 21st-century Irish rock band The Strypes, this Guitarist and vocalist contributed to the group's debut solo album, Snapshot. The recording, released in late 2013, quickly rose to Top 5 positions on both Irish and English music charts.
After making a 2010 appearance on The Late Late Toy Show, McClorey and his bandmates began attracting fans and were able to release a debut EP titled Young, Gifted and Blue.
In 2013, he and his The Strypes collaborators accompanied the Arctic Monkeys on a European tour.
English-born pop legend Elton John highly praised The Strypes' command of the blues genre and signed McClorey and his bandmates to his Rocket Music Management agency.
