Rising singer-songwriter Macy Martin hails from a Texas family of doctors and lawyers, but this recent Nashville transplant has been pursing her dream of music since the age of 13.

After enrolling at Nashville’s Belmont University, Martin balances schoolwork with songwriting and touring. Martin has been working with industry veteran Kent Wells (Dolly Parton), and recently began collaborating with Los Angeles producer and songwriter Bryan Todd. Though not currently signed with a publisher, Martin is a BMI affiliate.

During a recent visit to the MusicRow office, Martin offered an acoustic preview of two tracks she co-wrote with Todd, including “Rescue Me” and the flirty “Kiss Like This.” She also showcased a bolder, grittier side to her vocals with the pop-infused “Graffiti.”

She finished with a rendition of her current single, “Heart Sleeve Soul,” co-written with Pete Sallis and produced by Wells.

“I had this title in my songwriting journal for a while,” said Martin. “In relationships and especially in budding ones, we feel all these emotions and we don’t always want to share them, and we just hold on to them. We might start to text something, then edit it 500 times before actually sending it, and the point of the song is if we are juts honest and out there, true with our emotions, then we are truly heart sleeve souls.”
