SLCene Suggests: Macy Gray at The Depot

by on September 21, 2014


MACY GRAY, THE DEPOT, Monday, Sept. 22, 8 p.m., $30

It’s been a while since we’ve heard anything from Macy Gray, but that doesn’t mean you should ignore the soulful songstress when she pops into town on Monday. During her meteoric rise–largely on the strength of still-killer 1999 hit “I Try”–and in the years after when she tried to recapture the magic of her debut album, On How Life Is, Gray always knew how to throw down a seriously funky good time on stage. Her distinct rasp remains one of the more unique voices in modern music, and her sensibility leans more toward the brash experimentation of P-Funk and retro-soul of James Brown than the smooth R&B of many recent divas. Most recently, Gray released a covers album in 2012, and a new album this year called The Way. We Are the Strike open the show.
