Macy holds a “Smoking Gun”
Macy is a songwriter and vocalist from South Wales in the UK. Macy has played successful slots at Focus Wales, Swn Festival and Hub Festival, in what was her debut Festival Year in 2019. Her first release, “Cinema”, was played on BBC SOUNDS by Adam Walton and Bethan Elfyn. Macy was selected for the FORTE 10 project in 2019. In 2020 Macy was successful in being awarded a place on the 2020 BBC HORIZONS LAUNCHPAD scheme.
Since Macy was 11, she have been writing and performing music. Macy really want to continue, as she was not sure what else to do to be fair. Macy adds: “My Dad always taught me ‘Your actions have to be as big as your ambitions’, something that has stayed with me and he was dead right”. Macy says her influences come from Lana Del Rey, Dua Lipa, Billie Eilish, Beyonce and Mabel to name but a few.
Her new single, “Smoking Gun”, was recorded with Daniel Evans in Pontypridd. The song is about being caught out doing something you shouldn’t have been doing. It is recorded very much in the dark pop genre and style Macy wants her music to be in. The track was supposed to be launched in March. However only half of the vocals had been recorded before Lockdown. On the first week of Lockdown MACY’s laptop broke, so she couldn’t record quality vocals to send over to Dan Evans, her producer, in an attempt to finish the track. As a last resort MACY found an APP called IRIG. MACY bought a £20 Mic that was needed for the APP and through her iphone recorded the vocals. And it worked, well we think, at least!
