Macy Gray on the music biz

Macy Gray has revealed that it is difficult to succeed in the music industry as an older artist as record companies wrongly assume that only teenagers buy music and fail to cater for an older audience. 

She said, "There's this idea that only teenagers buy records and watch videos, so I think the industry is just becoming really accustomed to catering to a younger audience and therefore older artists have a really tough time. I just went with the ones who called me back."

Discussing her last record, 'Big', Gray admitted that her label affected her creative process.

'The Sellout' is the Grammy Award winning singer/songwriter's first album in more than 3 years, and will be released by Concord Records in the U.S., Island Records in the U.K. and Universal Music Group, internationally.
