Hailing from Wales in the UK, MACY has always had a love for music. Since the age of 11, MACY quietly honed her Dream Pop/ Contemporary R&B music, developing her writing skills along the way.
It proved to be a very successful 2019/20 for MACY, which saw her become one of the 10 acts to be selected on the Forte 10 project. MACY, whilst on the project, played successful slots at Focus Wales, Swn Festival and Hub Festival, in what was her debut Festival Year.

2020 saw MACY's Debut Single "CINEMA" released. Cinema was co-written with Writer & Artist, "Violet Skies" ( Mabel - God is a Dancer) and the Grammy-nominated Artist /Writer/Producer, "Daniel Evans" (LVR) (John Legend - By Christmas Eve). In July 2020 MACY released her second single, “Smoking Gun”. Cinema & Smoking Gun has both been played on "BBC Sounds", on the "Adam Walton" show and had an amazing response, with Bethan Elfyn also playing the track on her "BBC Wales show".MACY was awarded funding from the BBC Launchpad/ Horizons team in March 2020 and is looking forward to working with the Horizons team this year. MACY released her new single "Obvious" on the 9th October 2020. The track was selected for the Welsh A-List on BBC Radio Wales in October 2020 & November 2020
