Grammy-Winner Macy Gray Comes to Troy Music Hall Sept. 29th
TROY – On September 29th, a Grammy Award winner graces the 518! The Troy Music Hall is proud to welcome Macy Gray, currently on tour with her new band, The California Jet Club, in support of their latest record, The Reset. Released in February, it’s Gray’s first proper record in five years, and marks a deliberate fresh start for the multi-talented artist.
Forever full of ear-tugging/eye-popping surprises, the eclectic singer, songwriter and actress returns in top form with the inspired new, 11-song Moonslice Records album. Produced by Tommy Parker (Janet Jackson, Arianna Grande), The Reset reveals 360 degrees of Macy Gray at her most lyrically introspective and vocally exuberant. The songs move from Macy’s signature vulnerability on lead single “Thinking of You,” epic orchestral ballad “You Got Away” and the festive, sexy circus vibes of “Bottom to the Top” to the resoundingly rebounding singalong of “Every Night,” which features rap artist Maino.
Making this album a separate piece from the previous 10 studio projects in the 5x-Grammy-nominated (with one win) artist’s exquisite catalog is the full involvement of touring members Tamir Barzilay (drums), Billy Wes (keyboards), and Alex Kyhn (bass). While all three specialize in specific instruments, they are all multi-instrumentalists, co-writers and background vocalists. On the Jimmy Kimmel Live broadcast from June 2021, Tamir is seen playing guitar and drums simultaneously. The trio wraps its sound around Macy like a glove. And she, in turn, provides them full license to shine as bright as the front of stage spotlights.
The show begins at 8:00 pm. Tickets for the event range from $39.50 to $49.50 and can be purchased here.
