Origin: Hamilton, ON
Years Active: 2011-Present
Launched into the music scene after winning the 2013 Hamilton Music Awards Rising Star Competition, the now 23 year old has already been all over Ontario performing at major festivals and calling “home” to many of southern Ontario’s A-list country music venues. Last year alone she spent 336 hours performing over 75 gigs.
In 2016 she caught the eye of renowned producer Ken Scott (David Bowie) who commented “watch out Carrie Underwood” after producing her single “Should Have Known”, one of the many colours on Mackenzie’s debut EP.
Dive Bar Diva’s beauty is seen in it's ability to flaunt all of the diverse and dynamic sides that comprise Mackenzie. The EP soars through the many sub-genres of modern country music; ranging all the way from the vulnerable-americana "Your Company" to her confident, attitude-riddled-blues "Hope You're Lonely", and rounds off with her poignant, emotional ballad "More than a Memory".
