Mac Cornish is a 23 year old folk musician currently based in Portland. Born and raised at the foot of the Santa Cruz mountains in the San Francisco Bay Area, Mac Cornish grew up among the redwood trees. Cornish was deeply inspired by her natural surroundings and the sounds of her parent’s favorite 60s and 70s bands.
Her taste has become distinctly her own though, and her eclectic taste is reflected within her own music, pulling influence from folk rock classics like CSNY, the country queen Loretta Lynn, and also Tropicalia artists Erasmo Carlos and Caetano Veloso. Her songs take on a cosmic folk sound that is reminiscent of the sounds of Laurel Canyon. Her songs are often simple in nature, but full of emotional texture, revealing her influences from classics like Joan Baez and Fleetwood Mac, and more contemporary artists like Kacy & Clayton and Jessica Pratt.
Now currently residing in Portland, OR, Mac and the band can be found playing to their growing fanbase at local bars and venues.
Debut S/T Album out now!
In the 2021 blistering Portland summer heat, Mac and the band recorded their first album together. Produced and record by guitarist Max Simon in his garage, the album is recorded mostly live with the addition of lead guitar tracks and some vocals recorded separately.
The album is an amalgamation of many influences, but mostly the band's shared love of 60s folk, 70s rock, cosmic country, and a myriad of other genres. All the songs are written by Mac, but her band's added instrumentals add invaluable texture and emotional power to the songs.
Released on May 27th 2022, the band went on a west coast tour following its' release, playing to full rooms in every city they stopped in.
