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 their music project – set to release Summer 2017. Macy has been in the entertainment industry her whole life but is now 20 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.”
At just 14 years old, Macy released her freshman album on iTunes, with an impressive CD release party of over 500 people in attendance at Stereo Live 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 a new version of some of her favorite original songs but adding some of her new ones as well. Of Macy’s accomplishments, her songwriting achievements 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.
In the 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”. She added the role of “Iola Stover” to her Musical Theatre resume after successful performances of “Parade” at Belmont University. She attended the Grammy Awards, where she was interviewed multiple times on the red carpet, and she was a guest at both the exclusive Clive Davis party and MusicCares for the second year in a row. Coming up, Macy will be playing the role of Patty Simcox in Grease at the Studio Tenn theatre in Franklin, TN.
Through all of these accomplishments, Macy has also been able to stay on the Dean’s List every semester, and be a member of the Kappa Alpha Theta Fraternity. She studied abroad in Haiti and the Dominican Republic, where she studied economics, writing, and the cultures of other countries. This summer, she interned for the highly respected casting director Gordon Greenberg at the Broadway Teacher’s Workshop in Manhattan.
Although Macy has always been focused on her singing and song writing, she stayed 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 with high honors in academics.
Macy’s accomplishments in the entertainment industry run deep. She was on a national Disney Channel commercial when she was 12, won the Grand Prize of The Dallas Songwriters Association Contest for her song “Just Me and You”, and she opened for Kids Bop at the House of Blues in Dallas and Houston. She has performed many live concerts in venues such as Warehouse Live and the infamous Fitzgerald’s. She was Nominated for Pop Artist of The Year at age 14 at the Los Angeles Music Awards, and her song “Just Me and You” hit #1 on TweenPopRadio.com the first week it debuted. She filmed her first music video when she was 14 in Los Angeles at an old home of Marilyn Monroe's.
Macy enjoys using her talents to help in the community as well. She was a 6-year member of National Charity League philanthropic organization and has performed for the Houston Astros, The United States Army, The American Cancer Society, The Roger Clemens Foundation and many more.
