The American singer Macy Gray, famous for her gravelly voice and world-wide hit I Try (1999), is a veteran on the neo-soul scene. On her most recent album Stripped, she sings her own favourite numbers and those of other people, accompanied by a jazz combo. One of the good things about Gray? She always does exactly as she pleases, whether recording in the studio or singing live on stage.
