A gifted songwriter and dazzlingly singular singer, Macy Gray transcends genres, generations and cultures thanks to her signature storytelling, legendary raspy voice and willingness to experiment in soul music, R&B, pop, alternative rock, jazz, retro-disco and hip-hop.
Since the release of her multi-award–winning debut On How Life Is in 1999 that spawned the global international hit single “I Try,” Macy has built a career that has allowed her to walk her own path without compromise – along the way she has won multiple Grammys, MTV, Billboard and BRIT awards, sold over 25 million units and maintains a thriving acting career.
In an industry that is increasingly stifling of real artists, she’s forged her own vision, creating music that leaps genre barriers from experimental soul to alternative rock, from retro-disco to hip-hop. Her artistic integrity and innovativeness has won her fans across the world, including artists such as John Frusciante, Erykah Badu, Gang Starr, Mos Def, and Pharoah Monche, all of whom have collaborated with her.
Today, the legendary singer-songwriter, musician, record producer and actressis launching her 10th studio album, titled RUBY, in September. Check out her first track and official video, Sugar Daddy, inspired by the legendary Diana Ross’ portrayal of Billie Holiday in the 1972 biographical classic, “Lady Sings the Blues.”
“Sugar Daddy” was co-written by Macy and fellow Grammy®-Award winning American singer and songwriter Meghan Trainor, alongside Bianca “Blush” Atterberry, Tommy “TB Hits” Brown and Thomas Lumpkins, and serves as the perfect taster of what’s to come from Macy Gray and her highly anticipated RUBY Tour.
RUBY serves as a welcomed reminder that one of America’s greatest female songwriters and vocalists is back and fresher than ever.
