Producer David M. Hawkins announced that GRAMMY, MTV, and BRIT award winning singing sensation Macy Gray will tour Australia in September this year. This will be Macy’s first tour of Australia in over 12 years!
Following on from the release of her seventh studio album ‘COVERED’, Macy will tour Sydney, Gold Coast, Brisbane, and Melbourne with confirmed dates in September starting the tour at The Sydney Opera House.
A gifted songwriter and dazzlingly singular singer, overturning fan expectation and industry formula since kicking off her music career with her debut 2000 CD, On How Life Is. That musical calling card spawned the classic single “I Try”, and both the CD and single were massive global hits, with over 25 million units sold.
Macy has forged a career creating music that leaps genre barriers from experimental soul to alternative rock, from retro-disco to hip-hop, collaborating with artists including John Frusciante, Erykah Badu, Gang Starr, Mos Def, and Pharoah Monche. Macy has forged an uncompromising musical path beholden to her own vision and garnering accolades at every juncture.
With “COVERED” Macy has turned the cover album concept on its ear choosing edgy contemporary choices and approaching them in an innovative and uncompromising way.
Macy’s film credits include the ‘Training Day’, ‘Spider-man’, ‘Scary Movie 3’ and most recently (just launched at the Cannes Film Festival) ‘The Paperboy’ with John Cusack, Zach Efron, Nicole Kidman and Matthew McConaughey.
“I have loved MACY GRAY since her breakthrough album ‘On How Life Is’, she cemented herself in the landscape of popular culture with an incredibly original style and groove both in her music and lyric. For me she was the first popular artist I truly connected with in my generation. This will be her first tour since 2000 of Australia and I am honoured to be presenting such a maverick artist in her long awaited return. No one puts a concert on like Macy, the musicality of her relationship with the troop will astound you, the
vibe never stops it will shoot you to oblivion and back again.” David M. Hawkins
This album and this tour find Macy at a creative peak, mastering a personal milestone in her career.
