“More than anything I want to make people laugh….laugh at themselves, and each other. The power of love, realizing the absurdity of intolerance and the freedom we gain from releasing ourselves from its grasp, makes all things possible.” Macie’s words and music are a powerful force that inspire us to reach out and lift up. Just as her new release, Try, suggests, Macie leads us to a place where the heart sees all.
Macie’s childhood was spent at the foot of the piano, listening to her mother produce magical imagery through Mozart, Beethoven, and Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Phantom of the Opera, to which she quickly began singing along. Bit hard by the singing bug, Macie began early vocal training and has honed her art to a range spanning 4 octaves and going from a soulful baritone to the lyrical soprano with ease. Her career has been filled with international tours, steady appearances at venues large and small across the US, and, her first love, weekend gigs with both established and up and coming pop, rock, country, dance, and R&B bands.
More recent influences like Ellie Goulding, Diplo, and Calvin Harris have led Macie back to her love of songwriting, with lyrics that embolden and dance beats that make a body want to move. Having overcome her share of taunts about her size and the underdogs she championed into heroes, Macie inspires her audience. Like a ride in an impossibly fast car, she shows us strength and fearlessness are endlessly empowering. She teaches us to fight, encouraging acceptance and embracing change as a choice for oneself, not a concession to those who would suggest to do less is inferior.
Pairing up with Executive Producer, Vincent DeTiberiis, is proving to be an advantageous move for Macie, with increased bookings and demand for her Xtina-like vocal acuity on the rise. Her self-titled EP will appeal to anyone looking to set their spirit free and those who look adversity in the eye.
