InPlay Records has signed the face of recording artist Macy Medford, 19, who is a singer/songwriter born and raised in Katy, Texas.  Macy met Eddie Corral, CEO of InPlay, in June of 2013 at Springboard South Music Festival in Houston, Texas. Since then, the two have spent countless hours perfecting her craft and working on their new music projects. She is currently living in Nashville attending Belmont University in their highly selective Musical Theater program. Corral said, “She is one of the most amazing, gifted talents I have ever worked with.” 
At just 14 years old, Macy released her freshman album on iTunes, with an impressive CD release party of over 500 people in attendance at Stereo Live in Houston, TX.  Since then she has become a voting member of the Grammy's and last year attended the infamous Clive Davis party.  InPlay, her label, has just released a new version of her song I'm Done and filmed her new music video.  I'm Done is currently being played on many radio stations in the US and around the world. Of all of Macy’s accomplishments, her songwriting awards are at the top of her list where she won the Grand prize of the Dallas Songwriters Association. 
Her Freshman year at Belmont University was a full time load as she was the lead role of Corie in Barefoot in the Park, the Props Master of White Christmas and worked Spot Lights on The Addam's family.  "I have always enjoyed learning the ropes of a production from the inside out. I appreciate each learning experience because it is important to see the hard work that goes on behind the stage and to thank the people who are the backbone of each production." Macy made the Dean's List at Belmont University and continues to be an avid reader who loves history.  She loves to write songs that reflect upon her own personal experiences.    
Macy’s accomplishments in the entertainment industry runs deep.  Of of her accomplishments, her songwriting is at the top of the list.  She was on a national Disney Channel commercial when she was 12, opened for Kids Bop at the House of Blues in Dallas and Houston, and has performed many live concerts in venues such as Warehouse Live and the infamous Fitzgerald’s.  She was Nominated for Pop Artist of The Year at age 14 at the Los Angeles Music Awards, and her song Just You and Me hit #1 on TweenPopRadio.com the first week it debuted.  She filmed her first music video when she was 14 in Los Angeles at an old home of Marilyn Monroe's.
Macy’s love for music extends far beyond the norm.  She has always had a love for Theatre in which she has played leading roles such as Janet Van de Graff in The Drowsy Chaperone, Lucy in the play Dracula, and Marion the Librarian in The Music Man to name a few.  
Although Macy has always been focused on her singing and songwriting, she stayed involved in public school at Seven Lakes High School where she was Homecoming Queen, President of Studio VII Theater her senior year, was a member of the Chorale Choir and graduated with high honors in her academics.   
Macy enjoys using her talents to help in the community as well.  She has been a 6 year member of National Charity League philanthropic organization and has performed for the Houston Astros, The United States Army, The American Cancer Society, The Roger Clemens Foundation and many more.

Michelle Rose Exclusive Interview

  Q:  What's it like growing up in Mpls?   Does the city have interesting stories about Prince?     A:  I only lived in Minneapolis until I was three, but I have fond memories of it.  Even now that I live in a suburb of Minneapolis, I still feel like I'm a part of Minneapolis.  I think a lot of Minnesotans have "Minneapolis Pride", even if they don't live in Minneapolis.  Minneapolis has so many fun things to see and do, and the arts are very important here, with so many theaters and live shows.     Prince put us on the map for music.  I hear Prince stories everywhere I go in Minnesota.  I've met so many people who were associated with Prince, including one of his dancers, and even a former Paisley Park employee working as a cashier at the local grocery store, so I've heard many Prince stories.  I wish I could've been a Chanhassen resident when Prince was still alive, because I know that many Chanhassen residents saw him casually riding his bike around

Planet Of Rhythm Exclusive interview

  GCoulda you tell us what it's like being from L.A.?   LA is a great city for music, like any other large city.   Of course the downsides are things like traffic etc. but it is a wonderful place to create music, to hear music and experience great performances. Could you name the members in Planet of Rhythm and the roles they play? Doug Hafford (me): songwriter, singer, guitar Greg Thomas: Producer Rhythm Guitar, Bass, backup vocals Chad McKinsey: Producer, Drums, Guitar, backup vocals Juliet Roberts: Lead and backup vocals (what a talent she is) Elliott Jason: Lead Guitars Jorge Orellana:  Bass, Sax    Who inspired you guys to make electric blues rock music; is it something you guys just have in common?   The music comes from our love of the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s style rockers.   Of course much of that was inspired by earlier artists such as Robert Johnson, or Howlin’ Wolf etc.  We love the simplicity mixed with great musical performances, overdriven guitars and a strong driving bea
