An up-and-coming singer/songwriter with a fresh yet classic sensibility, Macy 

Todd creates lushly folk-tinged pop music that transcends both genre and time. 

Hailing from Georgia, the 19-year-old musician delivers an instantly captivating 

sound that centers on her delicate yet masterful voice, an instrument she’s honed 

through performing for crowds of thousands at her home church. Now at work on 

her debut, Macy laces those sweetly soulful vocals into songs built on indelible 

melody and a warm, graceful musicality.


Raised in Lawrenceville, Georgia, Macy grew up in a family who made music a 

major part of her life right from her earliest years. “My dad was a singer and 

toured in bands for a long time, and he played everything from Queen to Stevie 

Wonder around the house ever since I was a little kid,” she says. At age 14, 

Macy began delving deeper into her musical roots and learned to play guitar with 

the help of lessons from Chris Morgan, the worship pastor at her church. The 

following year, she tapped into her creative side and tried her hand at composing 

songs, quickly discovering her natural sense of melody and lyricism. “I started 

writing my own little silly songs when I was about 15, and in a couple years I 

started to realize that music was something that I could actually pursue more 

seriously,” Macy recalls.


In the midst of Macy’s sharpening her songcraft and cultivating her voice as an 

artist and musician, Morgan introduced her to his longtime friend Dan Hannon (a 

producer who has worked with artists like von grey, Manchester Orchestra, 

and A Rocket to the Moon). Now collaborating with Morgan and Hannon in 

developing songs for her debut, Macy’s recently added ukulele and piano to her 

repertoire, as well as begun exploring the work of legendary female artists like 

Stevie Nicks and Linda Ronstadt. That exploration has yielded songs such as 

“Wildflowers,” a wistful and lilting, intricately woven track that infuses its folky 

simplicity with all the breezy charm of a timeless pop gem. “I was listening to a lot 

of the Everly Brothers around the time I wrote that song, and I wanted to come 

up something with a similar style of pretty harmonies,” says Macy. “I took out my 

ukulele and found my way to the melody, and from there the whole song started 

to come together.”


As shown on “Wildflowers,” Macy’s graced with a rare and enchanting power to 

channel pure feeling into music that’s elegantly arranged and gorgeously refined. 

And for Macy, who tends to take an instinct-guided approach to songwriting, 

instilling each song with so much heart is essential to her vision. “I love writing 

songs because it lets me express myself in a way that’s not always easy to do in 

everyday life,” she says. “I can use the music and melody and all those elements 

to create emotion, to make people happy and make people think, and to build a 

level of connection that’s really important and special.”
