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 became a full-time homeschooler and full-time musician from there. I am working at getting better on filming by myself and producing my voice stacking my vocals on my own and building my fan base:) I started learning more and more covers and started playing with a band. I have been able to develop my own sound, because the band helped me find my voice. They pick cool songs, that they like, and that they think will work for my range. The band includes Austin Andersen, Jesse Leonard, and Nick Lopez. They are smart and talented.
I now have several originals and play about 10 -15 times per month. I have a saying that I believe in, "Knock down 7, Get up 8." I have been knocked down and pushed around in this music business and I will never, never, ever give up on my dream.
I just recorded a single with feat.Sean Kingston and will be promoting it as an independent artist this summer. Hope you will follow me on my youtube channel @macykatemusic and buy my single when it comes out and #stayinspired.
