“I’ve grown up doing the bar scenes, and you have to have drinking and partying songs there-–you have to,” Sweeney says. “Now, my songs are still about the same things, but I feel like they’re more mature versions.”
Sweeney’s salty wisdom and Texas-hewn soprano have never sounded stronger than they do on Trophy, her anticipated new album. Trophy is a breakthrough––the album we all suspected she was capable of making. The wit and honesty that have always defined her stone-cold country have blossomed into confessional, complex songwriting for grown-ups, still whiskey-drenched and honk-tonk-ready. Drugs, death, the ex-wife, drinking, devotion, and longing for a child: it’s all here, raw and real.
“I have not felt this good about music in a really long time,” Sweeney says from her front porch in Texas. “I’m really excited.”
The success of artists including Margo Price, Brandy Clark, Kacey Musgraves, Miranda Lambert, and others make it seem like the world is more open now than ever before to smart women singing smart country. It’s about time. Sweeney is a veteran of the trade, and has logged her miles the old-school way. A three-year residency at the Poodle Dog Lounge in Austin––“It was a dump,” she says. “They didn’t even have a credit card machine or liquor license.”––along with improv and stand-up comedy experience went a long way toward teaching her how to hold a room of cynical drunks in the palm of her hand.
In 2014, Marcy released her debut album Fireworks. She’s received praise from music journalist Hector Saldana, who wrote about the release of her album at the Hard Rock Café in San Antonio. Shortly after the release of her album, she was invited to sing at three Texas Recording Academy Grammy events. Marcy has had the honor of opening for Two Tons of Steel, Bart Crow, and The Americans. She has been invited to sing with Susan Gibson (Wide Open Spaces), Butch Morgan, Scott Barrier, Gary Cavanaugh, Lesti Huff, and more. Earlier in 2015, Marcy was also the featured artist on the KFAN Texas Music Hour Radio show in Fredericksburg, TX.
In 2016, the Marcy Grace Band was a finalist in the Bud Light Battle of the Bands hosted by Paseo Del Rio. She was also featured on SA Live where she performed her original music and was interviewed by CMA winner, Jeff Roper. She was also invited to play at three songwriter showcases in Nashville, TN.
Marcy's new single "I Wanna" is currently on the Texas Regional Radio Chart and on the Texas Music Picker's Spotify Chart.
“This is my passion, and I am blessed to get to share my songs and stories with the world.” – Marcy Grace
