Macy Gray (born Natalie Renée McIntyre on September 6, 1967) is an American R&B and soul singer-songwriter, musician, record producer and actress. She is known for her distinctive raspy voice and a singing style heavily influenced by Billie Holiday. Gray has released six studio albums, and received five Grammy Award nominations, winning one. She has appeared in a number of films, including Training Day, Spider-Man, Scary Movie 3, Lackawanna Blues, Idlewild, For Colored Girls, and The Paperboy.

I learned so much in making this record – keep pushing until your music moves you'. Making my first record, On How Life Is, was cool because I wasn't expecting anything from it. I'd made a record before on Atlantic, and nothing happened with it – I ended up getting dropped from the label. So this time around, I was on a new label, with a whole bunch of new musicians, and I had no expectations at all. That's a really awesome place to be when you make a record: there's no disappointment, and everything you do feels like a surprise
