Macy Gray
Macy Gray
(born Natalie Renée McIntyre; September 6, 1969[2]) is an American R&B and soul singer-songwriter, musician, record producer and actress. She is known for her distinctive raspy voice, and a singing style heavily influenced by Billie Holiday. Gray has released six studio albums, and received five Grammy Award nominations, winning one. She has appeared in a number of films, including Training Day, Spider-Man, Scary Movie 3, Lackawanna Blues, Idlewild, For Colored Girls, and The Paperboy. Gray is best known for her international hit single "I Try", taken from her multi-platinum debut album On How Life Is. In 2016, Gray made a large artistic leap by changing labels to record an album produced with binaural sound. Stripped (Chesky Records, 2016)[1] marked the singer's first steps into the world of audiophile recordings.

Early life[edit]

Gray in 1995

Natalie McIntyre was born in Canton, Ohio,[3] the daughter of Laura McIntyre, a math schoolteacher,[4] and Otis Jones who left when she was a baby.[5] Her stepfather was a steelworker, and she has a sister who would become a biology teacher.[5] She began piano lessons at age seven.[6] A childhood bicycle mishap resulted in her noticing a mailbox of a man named Macy Gray; she used the name in stories she wrote and later decided to use it as her stage name.[5] Gray attended school with Brian Warner (later known as musician Marilyn Manson) although they did not know each other.[6] She attended more than one high school including a boarding school which asked her to leave due to her behavior.[6] She attended college at the University of Southern California
University of Southern California
and studied scriptwriting.[5] Musical career[edit] While attending the University of Southern California, she agreed to write songs for a friend. A demo session was scheduled for the songs to be recorded by another singer, but the vocalist failed to appear, so Gray recorded them herself.

I started forming bands and writing songs just for fun and then I really got into it and got attached to it. Then a friend of mine asked me to be a singer in his jazz band. He gave me all these jazz CDs and I studied all these different singers and I kind of taught myself how to sing for a gig, but I didn't take it seriously until later.[6]

She then met writer-producer Joe Solo while working as a cashier in Beverly Hills.[7] Together, they wrote a collection of songs and recorded them in Solo's studio. The demo tape gave Gray the opportunity to sing at jazz cafés in Los Angeles.[8] Although Gray did not consider her unusual voice desirable for singing,[6] Atlantic Records signed her. She began recording her debut record but was dropped from the label upon the departure of A&R man Tom Carolan, who had signed her to the label.[9] Macy returned to Ohio
but in 1997 Los Angeles based Zomba Publishing Senior VP A&R man Jeff Blue, convinced her to return to music and signed her to a development deal, recording new songs based on her life experiences, with a new sound, and began shopping her to record labels.[10][11] In 1998, she landed a record deal with Epic Records.[12] She performed on "Love Won't Wait", a song on the Black Eyed Peas' debut album Behind the Front.[13] On How Life Is
On How Life Is
(1999–2001)[edit] Gray worked on her debut album in 1999 with producer Darryl Swann.[14] Released in the summer of 1999, On How Life Is
On How Life Is
became a worldwide smash.[15] Despite the first single "Do Something" stalling on the charts, the release of the second single "I Try" made the album a success for Gray.[16] "I Try" (which was originally featured in Love Jones and the Jennifer Aniston-starring romantic-comedy Picture Perfect in 1997)[17] was one of the biggest singles of 1999,[18][19] and subsequent singles "Still" and "Why Didn't You Call Me" ensured the album became triple platinum in the US[20] and quadruple platinum in the UK.[21] In 2001, Gray won the Grammy Award
Grammy Award
for Best Female Pop Vocal Performance for "I Try", which was also nominated for "song of the year" and "record of the year".[22] She then collaborated with Fatboy Slim, the Black Eyed Peas, and Slick Rick
Slick Rick
(on the song "The World Is Yours", from the Rush Hour 2
Rush Hour 2
soundtrack), as well as acting for the first time, in the thriller Training Day.[23] In August 2001, Gray was booed off the field at the Pro Football Hall of Fame exhibition game after forgetting the lyrics to the American national anthem.[24] The Id and The Trouble with Being Myself

Gray's The Id featured appearances by John Frusciante

and Erykah Badu on the single "Sweet Baby" (which was co-written with longtime collaborator Joe Solo).[25] The album peaked at number eleven on the Billboard 200.[26] It fared even better in the UK, where it reached number one on the UK Albums Chart and was certified gold by the BPI.[27] The underperformance in the United States, compared to her debut album, may have been due to The Id being released just a week after the September 11, 2001 attacks.[28] In 2002, she appeared in Spider-Man and contributed a remix of her song "My Nutmeg Phantasy" to its accompanying soundtrack. Gray also worked with Santana on the track "Amoré (Sexo)", for his album Shaman.[29][30] Also in 2002, she appeared on the Red Hot Organization's compilation CD in tribute to Nigerian Afropop pioneer Fela Kuti, Red Hot and Riot. She appeared on a remake of Kuti's classic track "Water No Get Enemy" alongside prominent neo soul, hip hop and R&B artists, D'Angelo, the Soultronics, Nile Rodgers, Roy Hargrove, and Kuti's son, Femi Kuti.[citation needed] She recorded a duet with Zucchero
called "Like the Sun (From Out of Nowhere)", which featured Jeff Beck

on guitar released in 2004 on Zu & Co., a duets collection.[31][32] Her song "Time of My Life" was included in the soundtrack to 8 Mile.[33] A cartoon based on Gray's childhood was being developed, but it never came to fruition.[14][30] In 2003, Gray released her third studio album, The Trouble with Being Myself, to rave reviews.[citation needed] The lead single, "When I See You", became a radio hit in the US and a top forty hit in the UK, although the album was not as well received by fans.[34] Nevertheless, it became Gray's third top twenty album in the UK.[35][36] A greatest hits collection and a live album were subsequently released: The Very Best of Macy Gray
Macy Gray
(2004) and Live in Las Vegas (2005). Additionally, Gray was featured on Marcus Miller's 2005 album Silver Rain, on a cover of Prince's 1986 song "Girls & Boys". She also appeared on the soundtrack to the film Chicago with Queen Latifah

Gray began 2007 by being kicked off-stage at a concert in Barbados
for profanity (which was part of the show), but she was not aware that it was against the law in that country.[38] She gave a public apology that night to avoid arrest.[39] In March, Gray released her fourth studio album (sixth overall), Big.[40] Two singles, "Finally Made Me Happy" and "Shoo Be Doo", were released from the album.[39] "What I Gotta Do", another track from the album, is featured on the Shrek the Third
Shrek the Third
soundtrack. It has been considered Gray's comeback album, after a four-year hiatus since her last studio album.[41] The album was critically acclaimed and seen by some as her best work to date.[42] It features collaborations with Natalie Cole, Fergie, Justin Timberlake, and will.i.am, who co-executive produced the album with Gray. It was moderately successful in the US, where it debuted and peaked at number 39 on the Billboard 200, becoming Gray's highest-charting album since The Id.[43] Big reached number 62 on the albums chart in the UK,[44] her lowest-charting UK album, but it achieved some success in several other countries, including Switzerland, the Czech Republic, and Finland, reaching the Top 40 on their album charts.[45] PBS's Soundstage live concert series premiered a Gray concert on July 5.[46]

Gray's dress carried the message "Darfur Red Alert". In 2008, Gray launched a new campaign under the name " Nemesis Jaxson", with the single "Slap a Bitch".[48] Early in 2009, Gray recorded the song "Don't Forget Me" for the soundtrack of Confessions of a Shopaholic.[49] The Sellout (2010–2011)[edit] The first single from Gray's fifth studio album The Sellout, "Beauty in the World", is featured in the final sequence of the series finale, "Hello Goodbye", of the ABC television series, Ugly Betty. "Beauty in the World" was also used as the theme in multiple videos created by Microsoft
to promote Internet Explorer 9.[citation needed] Both singles released from the album ("Beauty in the World" and "Lately") were top 10 hits on the US Billboard Hot Dance Club Songs Chart.[citation needed] Upon its release, The Sellout received generally mixed reviews from most music critics. Metacritic
gave it an average score of 57, based on 15 reviews;[50] Andy Gill of The Independent
The Independent
gave it three out of five stars; while AllMusic
writer John Bush shared a similar sentiment and panned Gray's songwriting.[51] However, The Boston Globe's James Reed commended its production,[52] and Jeremy Allen of NME
gave the album a 7/10 rating.[53] Covered, Talking Book, and The Way (2011–2015)[edit]

The interview coincided with the release of her album The Way, released in October 2014 on Kobalt Records. A world tour was announced shortly after its release.[57] Stripped (2016)[edit] In 2016, Gray's career continued with an album produced by Chesky Records, the record label founded by Grammy-nominated composer and musician David Chesky. Stripped was released September 9, 2016 and garnered unanimous praise from critics. The album debuted at #3 on the Billboard Jazz
