At a young age, Mackenzie told her mom she had music inside her that "needed to come out." The NYC-based singer/songwriter started writing music at the age of 4 with piano lessons quickly following.
The piano has driven her emotive indiefolk music ever since, her fingers gracefully guiding a poignant ballad or "pounding the keys with the reckless abandon of of an 11-17-70–era Elton John" (The Village Voice).
She underpins her classical training with an emotional essence that is uniquely her own. You can hear consistent undertones of Celtic folk, her Irish and Scottish heritage instantly recognizable. And while she draws influence from folk-pop artists like Aoife O'Donovan, Tori Amos, and Joni Mitchell, her collaborators are rooted in folk, rock, glam pop, classical and jazz and have included Bellehouse, Lance Breakfast, Kenyon Phillips, Nikkie McLeod, Adam Ahuja, Yuka Tadano, Bets, Samuel R. Saffery, and more.
While she has played from California to Ireland, you can see Mackenzie perform most frequently in NYC at Joe's Pub as part of Unisex Salon and at Rockwood Music Hall. She is joined most often by bandmates Yuka Tadano (bass) and Cody Rahn (drums).
