Macy Gray

What Has Macy Gray Been Up To Lately


To be honest our guest today Macy Gray has had an up and down career. It started way up with her astonishing debut and "I Try" that became a huge hit. Interviews at the time with the introverted Gray proved she was uncomfortable with the attention. After that it was hard to duplicate the initial success. Of late she has put out a pair of covers albums and has covered Stevie Wonder's classic Talking Book. Now comes the new more gritty, more Macy, album The Way, her first of original material in a while. She has her band in the studio for a session of the new songs.
