MAYCE (@mayceworld formerly known as Macy Kate) is a seasoned artist, highly respected vocalist, songwriter, and notable and coveted live performer from Tampa, Florida. Not too long ago, she released a heartfelt alternative-pop single, “The Man That I Met,” her first single since her rebrand launch.
MAYCE – “The Man That I Met” single
“2015, that’s when it hit me, I’ve been to more cities than miles I could drive. Singing songs that were sh*tty and you’d sing ‘em with me. You’d say I sound beautiful; I know that’s a lie. And a part of me misses all of those kisses. Small-town dive bars, Billy Joel nights. I wish it was easier, maybe I’d be with ya.” – lyrics
“The Man That I Met” finds MAYCE in her new chapter of empowerment, self-realization, and womanhood. MAYCE unveils the truths of her journey and the chapters of her life remarkably. Although “The Man That I Met” takes listeners down-memory-lane, in a melancholy, dreamy state of nostalgia, there is a striking shift in MAYCE sound that showcases we are listening to an evolved, empowered female artist whom we were not confronted with before.
“The Man That I Met” stems from a time when MAYCE uprooted the complex life she was living in Los Angeles to build a much simpler existence in Utah. Accompanied by alternative and Western influences, while holding a pop edge with her trademark power vocals, the song lives as a time capsule of the good things about a certain person despite how bad it ended, finding yourself wondering how things could have been had the circumstances been different.
“You told me you loved me the day that you lost me.”
“I wrote ‘The Man That I Met’ based on a relationship that ended in so much pain, but I didn’t let that feeling blind me from remembering all of the good things about that person. When something ends in hurt, it usually leaves a bad taste in our mouths, causing us to forget that those moments highlighted the worst versions of ourselves. This song brings maturity to light, especially once a relationship comes to a close. To recall someone for their light in this world instead of the dark shows growth, and I’ve never been more proud to release a song.” – MAYCE explained
MAYCE penned “The Man That I Met” to remind herself and her audience that although some things can end in pain, there is still value in remembering the best in people. A true storyteller of the heart, “The Man That I Met” is the first drop within a full body of work that MAYCE is set to begin releasing on her own.
“I wish it was easier, maybe I’d be with ya.”
MAYCE is ready to open up about how it feels to release music since her exit from record label, EMPIRE, and her long-term management. Her skill of songwriting matches the simplistic approaches of artists such as Dolly Parton. It also has a silky resonation to it, almost like a musical fusion of Christina Aguilera and Alanis Morissette. Jumping into a new genre, accompanied by simple songwriting, lies a very precise and truthful execution of the artist who manages to transport riveting layers and emotions.
