Macy Kate: “‘So Fire’ is all about forgetting about your worries and just living your best life. I wrote it about a time I went to New York City with three of my best friends and had the best night I’ve ever had in my life. It was just an ongoing night that never ended. I will never forget it. It was pure bliss and joy of just being together and forgetting about our worries in life and focusing on each other and what’s important. ‘Good Time’ was about a situation I was going through with a guy I was dating. We were at a party and all he wanted to talk about was our relationship and I was just not in the mood. We were at this dope house party in LA and I just could not be bothered LOL. This song is all about having a good time and letting go of all problems. Not letting anything ruin the present moment. Knowing there’s a time and place for everything. ‘What They Say’ is about the strength of a relationship. Something that everyone wants. Stability, strength, and trust. Knowing someone is down for you at all times. No matter what they say.”
Each song on the EP tells a different part of a story and it evolves as you go through eac song, bringing an elevated level of storytelling. Macy Kate is a strong, empowering example for the younger female generation as an artist and a young female who pursues her dreams through hard work, depth, authenticity and serious devotion.
Macy Kate: “So many talented people featured on the EP. Brittany B wrote on ‘Good Time’ with me. She’s absolutely incredible and so talented. Tommy Brown produced ‘So Fire’ who is unbelievably talented yet so humble. Harmony Samuels produced ‘Good Time’ who also is pure talent. Honored to have them be apart of the ‘Cry For Help’ EP.”
