“RONA MAC CAN ONLY EVER BE HERSELF.
HER MUSIC [IS] SHOT THROUGH WITH EXPERIENCE, HUMOUR, AND A SENSE OF SURVIVAL"
"Rona mac’s haunting vocals on radio 1 with Pennies, written recorded and produced herself in west Wales…mind mellowing stuff and you can just hear how her surroundings have influenced her"
(Radio1 Chillest show // Ifan Sion Davies)
“Written, produced, mixed and mastered by an outstanding artist in her caravan... meet Rona Mac...”
(BBCRadio6 // Tom Robinson)
“My artist for the week this week is the brilliant Rona Mac. Pennies by Rona Mac, it’s stunning sounding single.”
(BBCRadioWales // Huw Stephens)
Rona Mac (she/her) is a trailblazer for expression within music. She is a queer Singer-Songwriter bringing us lo-fi alt-Indie with Folk and Americana influences, crafted in her caravan home-studio in west Wales. Her music comes raw and unfiltered, aching with the kind of nostalgia that comes with rural, rugged places. She weaves satisfying guitar-driven riffs with hooky melodies and she shows the ability in her sophisticated lyricism to reach out to people and make them feel. Her strive for depth and grit evokes the singer-songwriter movement of late 90’s as well as contemporaries such as SOAK, Marika Hackman and Holly Humberstone.
Despite music composition and performance being prominent in her life from a very young age, Rona Mac’s project as a solo musician began in 2020 and she has since released a DIY Debut Album ‘Sheelah’ and EP ‘Shades Of Ham’, exhibiting her captivating talent with music production. Her personal highlights of 2022 are plays on primetime BBCRadio1, BBC6Music and Radio Wales, performing at 6music Fest and Boomtown, and getting featured in Clash magazine. Funded by PRS foundation Women Make Music and Help Musicians UK, she will be releasing a new album in 2023, as well as collaborations with artists Dan Bettridge, Minas and Wil Owen.
