You are bound to know “I’ll Try” from her debut album “On How Life Is”, and “Sweet baby” featuring Erykah Badu from the album “The ID”. Both tracks are now available in entirely new versions together with a number of brand new songs on “Stripped”, on which Gray caters for the sound with her crispy soul voice in jazzy and blues-inspired arrangements.
The American soul star’s most recent visit to Denmark was in 2014 at the venue Posten in Odense, and back then GAFFA praised her performance:
"Macy Gray keeps seducing the audience and shouts “sexy people” as often as she can get away with it. She constantly interacts with the audience, and from to time I have to pull myself together in order to write down what happens when the funky beats get your body going. […] and one thing is for sure: Macy Gray masters the art of delivering a brilliant show which involves the audience." - GAFFA, Posten, 28 June 2014
Look forward to hearing one of the crispiest voices in the world when Macy Gray goes on stage in the Concert Hall and dispenses her musical treats.
About Macy Gray
Natalie Renee McIntyre – better known as Macy Gray is living proof that it is worthwhile to be in the right spot at the right time. Even as a teenager, she wrote songs for other artists, and when one of these didn't show for a demo session, she recorded the songs herself even though she wasn't keen on her own characteristic voice. The tracks circulated at the music scene in LA, she invented her creative alter ego, Macy Gray, and landed a record deal with Epic in 1998. When everyone could sing along to “I’ll Try” the following year, her music career really took off, and she won a Grammy for ”Best Female Pop Vocal Performance” with precisely that hit.
Since then Macy Gray has moved in various artistic directions; she has featured in several films such as Training Day and Spiderman and she has co-written an animation film. Musically, Macy Gray has also looked in different directions. She has, for instance, re-recorded Stevie Wonder's iconic album “Talking Book”, and she has also reinterpreted Metallica's hit “Nothing Else Matters” in a jazzy version.
