Mackenzie is an NYC based singer-songwriter and performer who bridges folk, indie, and pop in a fresh and unique way. With all of her lyrics reflecting her personal experiences, Mackenzie makes music that invites her audience to explore vulnerability within themselves.
Growing up as a kid in Northern California, Mackenzie was inspired by the sounds of Elton John, Johnny Cash, and Taylor Swift. She began playing the guitar at 9 years-old, wrote her first song at 11 years-old, and has been making music ever since. Hers is a familiar yet inventive sound that breaks down genre barriers. Her songs cover a wide range of human experiences from falling in love and heartbreak to teenage angst to the complexity of exploring one’s gender/sexuality.
In 2018, Mackenzie released her first single “Bitter to Me” and has since released an EP, “Running in My Bed,” and another single, “In the Before.” She’s played shows all over New York City at venues such as Pianos and Rockwood, and has even sold out shows at Cornerstone Berkeley and Bowery Ballroom in NYC.
