The De La Warr Pavilion has confirmed a date with Macy Gray on Sunday, June 20 2021, presented by Rye International Jazz and Blues Festival.

Billed as Soul On A Sunday, it offers a chance to enjoy one of the most acclaimed American soul singers of her generation.

A spokesman said: “That unmistakable rasp, unshakable grasp on soul, and funky spirit ensured Macy Gray her status as a 21st-century icon since her arrival with the triple-platinum How Life Is in 1999. Selling over 25 million total albums globally, winning a GRAMMY Award and two BRIT Awards, collaborating with everyone from Ariana Grande to Galactic, and enchanting fans all over the world, her voice has consistently resounded throughout pop culture.

“Hailing from Canton, Ohio, Macy remains an undeniable force of nature, selling out venues in nearly every corner of the globe two decades into her storied career.

“Most recently, 2016’s Stripped earmarked a creative high point, gaining unanimous acclaim from Vogue, Vice, and many more. Now, her tenth full-length album, RUBY (Artistry Music/Mack Avenue) reaffirms and reasserts that signature rarity millions continue to treasure.

“Channelling the spirit of the grimy R&B and smoky jazz closest to her heart, Macy made a leap forward by looking back to formative inspirations. However, she updated those elements with enriched, entrancing, and enigmatic soundscapes brought to life by producers Johan Carlsson (Michael Bublé, Maroon 5), Tommy Brown (Jennifer Lopez, Fifth Harmony, Travis Scott) and Tommy Parker Lumpkins (Janet Jackson, Justin Bieber).

“RUBY canvases a wide spectrum. Raucous horns that feel ripped from a classic 70s flick augment the grit on Cold World as Jealousy spins a covetous narrative that soars as it seduces. Gary Clark Jr adds six-string firepower to Buddha. Everything culminates on the reggae-inspired Witness, which shuffles between mainland soul and island grooves.”
