MACY GRAY ANNOUNCES SPECIAL ENGAGEMENT TOUR
Macy Gray announced a special engagement tour celebrating the 14th anniversary of her Grammy award winning debut album *On How Life Is *(1999). Gray will perform the album, which includes the smash hit "I Try” in its entirety in front of intimate audiences starting May 21st at Maryland Live! Casino in Baltimore, MD. The tour will visit six cities on the East Coast, including New York and Chicago.
*On How Life Is* and the single “I Try” were massive global hits, which sold more than 25 million units, garnered multiple Grammy and MTV awards, and launched a thriving singing and acting career for Gray. A gifted songwriter and dazzling vocalist, Gray has been overturning industry standards and fan expectations since starting her music career with this groundbreaking album.
Gray has released seven studio albums, including her 2012, 429 Records release *Talking Book*, a love letter to Stevie Wonder for the 40th anniversary of his album by the same title and *Covered*, featuring her renditions of hits by some of rock music’s biggest artists, including Metallica, Radiohead and Arcade Fire. She has appeared in critically acclaimed films, such as *For Colored Girls*, *Training Day*, *Idlewild*, *The Paperboy* and *Spider-Man*. Gray is currently in the studio working on her next album slated for release in late 2013.
