In his latest single, “Even Though I Try,” Brian Mackey lays bare the complexities of life and the struggle to overcome past traumas, depression, and setbacks. With his warm and vulnerable voice and powerful lyrics, Mackey takes us on a journey of self-discovery and growth.
Recorded at Sony Tree Studios in Nashville, this track is a departure from Mackey’s previous work with producer John Levine and is the first solo production from the singer-songwriter. The song is part of his second album, “Good Morning Ireland,” and is a poignant reflection on the paradoxical nature of life.
Through the powerful themes of addiction, motherhood, regret, and evil intentions, Mackey reminds us that we can only succeed if we genuinely try. The song is an emotional piano-synth soliloquy that showcases Mackey’s versatility as an artist and his ability to blend folk, pop, rock, and Americana influences.
Raised in northern Florida, Brian Mackey’s musical journey started at a young age, listening to a diverse range of genres and artists. His grandmother played piano, and his mother dabbled in songwriting, which sparked his passion for music.
“Even Though I Try” is a testament to Mackey’s talent as a singer-songwriter and his ability to connect with his audience profoundly and personally. It’s a song that speaks to anyone who has faced adversity and struggled to overcome it, and it’s a reminder that growth and perseverance are possible even in the darkest of times.
