Producer, Writer, Vocalist, Mixer & Instrumentalist, what can't MACK do!
20 Year old MACK is looking to make a mark In the Music Industry and is off to a fantastic start with the newest hit 'Ready For It'
After releasing 'Hit' and 'Get To Me' on Soundcloud the artist from Orange, California in the United States just released her best song yet. 'Ready for it' could have been arguably been produced by some of the best producers in the world. With various styles shining through, the catchy vocals and beautiful piano melodies are complemented by soulful drums and heavenly pads.
Having listened to MACK's soundcloud its clear artistically where her sound is going, 'Get to me' is only available as a 50 second demo version but we really hope we get to hear the full track.
The previous release before that 'Hit' shows the true production value of the artist who has a strong growing style, with evolving melodies, soft drums and pads, MACK is not one to be missed.
We sat down with Mack to find out about more behind the artist.
1. Who are your musical Influences?
I have been heavily influenced by 2000's r&b and hip hop, as well as today's r&b and soul. I like to fuse r&b and pop into one when I write songs, as both have had a massive impact in my life. I grew up on Usher, Ne-Yo, Kanye, Aaliyah, Mario, Ja Rule, TLC, Destiny's Child, and Janet Jackson, and of course Michael Jackson. Pharrell also heavily influenced my beat making and producing within r&b music, as well as Mike Posner's songwriting skills.
2. How long have you been making music for?
I am 20 years old now, and almost 21 as of this December. I started playing drums and piano when I was eight years old and then picked up the guitar at 10 years old. After that, I quickly joined a band and immediately began playing and booking shows at the state fair. When I was around 10, I started producing and beat making r&b music on the side, which was totally different from performing in a band. I started recording songs and secretly singing on them in my little home studio that I started building at 10 years old. Ever since then, singing, producing, songwriting and mixing became my entire life. I have been doing this for over 10 years now, and I can't believe where my music has taken me. I still can't believe that I had a viral song posted less than a year ago on SoundCloud to hit almost 150k plays, it's unreal.
3. What are your goals for the future?
I'm focused to keep doing what I am doing; to keep getting better at my craft and to hopefully continue gaining more and more attention from new people all around the world with my new music as I keep working hard at it. I'm incredibly hopeful that I will produce songs with even more talented people, collaborate with other songwriters, and to keep putting out good records that are true to me and that represent who I am as an artist, and most importantly a person.
