Macy Medford biography
InPlay Records has signed the face of recording artist Macy Medford who is a singer/songwriter born and raised in Katy, Texas. Macy met Eddie Corral, CEO of InPlay, in June of 2013 at Springboard South Music Festival in Houston, Texas. Since then, the two have spent countless hours perfecting her craft and working on music and acting projects. Macy has been in the entertainment industry her whole life and is now 21 years old. She is currently living in Nashville attending Belmont University in their highly selective Musical Theater program. Corral said, “She is one of the most amazing, gifted talents I have ever worked with.”
Macy released her freshman album, at 14 years old, with an impressive CD release party of over 500 people in attendance at StereoLive in Houston, Texas. Her fan base has continually grown over the years and she is a popular voice on YouTube. InPlay, her label, will be releasing some new versions of some of her favorite original songs but adding new songs as well. Of Macy’s accomplishments, her songwriting awards are at the top of her list. She is an avid reader who loves to write songs that reflect upon her own personal experiences as a young adult navigating through life.
Last year, Macy released a new music video for her song “I’m Done” that has picked up thousands of views. Her songs “I’m Done” and “Not Broken” have been on the national radio circuit, including 200 college radio stations. Her songs have also been picked up by multiple TV Networks, including most recently E! Network’s hit TV show, “Total Bellas”.
In November 2017, Macy was written up in Broadway World Magazine for her role in Fiddler on the Roof saying, “Macy Medford very nearly steals the show as Grandma Tzeitel during Tevye's raucous dream sequence.”
Through all of these accomplishments, Macy has also been able to stay on the Belmont Dean’s List every semester, and continue to be a member of the Kappa Alpha Theta Sorority. In May of 2017, Macy loved studying abroad in Haiti and the Dominican Republic, where she studied economics, writing, and the cultures of other countries. Also that year she interned for the highly respected casting director Gordon Greenberg at the Broadway Teacher’s Workshop in Manhattan, NY.
Macy will be attending her fourth Grammy Awards in February where she has been interviewed multiple times walking the red carpet and has been a guest at both the exclusive Clive Davis party and MusicCares.

She was recently nominated for Best Actress for her role in Side Show at the Broadway World Awards among other amazing professional actresses. She currently is the role of Ruth in Thoroughly Modern Millie which will open in March at the Trout Theatre on Belmont’s campus.
Although Macy has always been focused on her singing/songwriting, she remained involved in a public high school where she was Homecoming Queen, President of Studio VII Theatre Company, a member of the advanced Choir, and a graduate of National Honor Society for her academics.
