“You can call me Macy. I never really believed in myself as a singer until I received a standing ovation at The Sprint Center in Kansas City. That moment inspired me to never give up on my dreams. I am working at breaking into the music business, as a full time thing, thanks to really supportive fans.
I love music more than anything in the world. I like the way it makes me feel and an audience feel. I am a cross between Christina Aguilera, Alicia Keys with a splash of Adele. My main focus right now is writing my songs so that teen emotions are relevant and taken seriously.
I started working with my teen band, MKB, who hails from my hometown of Tampa. MKB includes my bruuthers – Cade Larson, Nick Lopez, and Austin Anderson. They write and pick out songs that they think fit my voice and adjust the songs to make them more interesting and emphasize my vocal range. I feel like I can be myself with MKB and try new things vocally, spin the vocal sounds, add growls, run and riff whenever and wherever. I have known the drummer, Nick, all of my life and I know they all have my back and I have theirs… foreva!!”
