Mackenzie Shivers Releases Feb. 8 Album

The new adult contemporary album, The Unkindness, from Mackenzie Shivers burns with empathy like a smoke signal bursting through the haze of political destruction in the United States. Seeking comfort during chaos, each song on The Unkindness travels like a lifeboat in troubled waters. Guiding the way towards dry land, Shivers reaches a compassionate hand into the ocean of ugliness and rescues those beginning to sink under. The Unkindness is out February 8.

The Unkindness stands like a powerful army, a collection of songs with resilient soldiers on the battle lines fighting against the “unkindness” that appears in the world. Songs like “Believe”, “The Unkindness” and “Better” were forged in the fires of feminism after major cultural and political shifts including the Me Too movement and the 2016 election. While “Tears to Keep Me Warm” serves as a comforting reminder that pain heals and anger turns to action. The album as whole pledges a therapeutic commentary on the harsh realities that surface and spread like wildfire on the world. Like coping with the “unkindness” all around us, Shivers conveys the realness and rawness of hands joining in unity and marching forward.

This is Shivers’ first time being listed as a producer on a project, further injecting more of her own personal creative vision into the heart of each song. Although the album is deeply personal, her production contributions and passion for songwriting allowed for a very specific and cohesive mood. Rather than focusing on making each take perfect, Shivers emphasized the importance of capturing the story being told.

When he’s not playing a show or practicing with his band Go Tiger, Go! he can be found at one of Detroit’s best new restaurants or taking in the sights and sounds that the area has to offer. He loves running, coffee houses, playing with puppies, and the occasional vortex of video games.
