Daytime Macy Kate Performance

MACY KATE story as told by Macy Kate...

My music started as a full-time thing when I got through to the bootcamp stage at Xfactor, 2012. I never really believed in myself as a singer until that point and even though I didn't make it far on the show, it inspired me to never give up on my singing. I got a keyboard for my birthday and started to play and record my voice for fun. Then, my brother bought some recording equipment and a mic and started recording my voice over beats that he made.

For me, once I decide to do something, I never look back, and I began my full-time music journey from there. I am working at getting better on filming by myself and producing my voice, stacking on my own, writing my own songs and building my fan base:) I started learning more and more covers and started playing with a band. 

I love music more than anything in the world. I like the way it makes me feel and an audience feel. I am a cross between Christina Aguilera, Alicia Keys with a splash of Adele. My main focus right now is writing my songs so that teen emotions are relevant and taken seriously.

 I started working with my teen band who hails from my hometown of Tampa.....The Macy Kate Band. Cade Larson, Nick Lopez and Austin Anderson write and pick out songs that they think fit my voice. and would adjust them to make them more interesting and emphasize my vocal range. Finally, I felt like I could be myself with my sound and try new things, spin the vocal sounds, add growls,run and riff whenever and wherever I felt like it. Funny thing, like Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz, the answers to my problems were in my own backyard.
