Press Kit


Mac Cornish is an Americana musician currently based in Portland, Oregon. She grew up at the foot of the Santa Cruz mountains in California, spending her childhood daydreaming beneath redwood trees, listening to her parents favorite music of the 60s and 70s, and riding horses.

Her childhood fostered a love for all things old, specifically old folks ballads and old clothing, but also the music and aesthetics of 1960s Laurel Canyon. Buffalo Springfield, Gram Parsons, Jackson Browne, and Joni Mitchell all serve as major inspirations for her. Her daydreaming has been channeled into her songwriting where she tells the stories of her life and her family's. ​


She now lives in Portland, OR, similarly surrounded by evergreens, where her and her backing band can found playing to her growing fanbase at local bars and venues.

"Cornish’s deep affection for Laurel Canyon is obvious in her painterly lyrics and earthy rasp, but the twang in her rich voice is as country as they come."

- Adobe and Teardrops



"One of the many names to carry away and look forward to in the future was Mac Cornish and her band The Hens. Originally from San Francisco and now based in Portland, you could tell she is one of these souls that is born with the love of country and folk music"

The record includes 8 original songs where Mac grapples with her journey back to herself after getting sober, a brutal break up, and ultimately, self acceptance. The record holds strong to her California roots, with influences from Cosmic Americana legends like Gram Parsons, Jackson Browne, and Linda Rondstandt, but at the core of it is Mac's passion for songwriting. The album will be a combination independent self release and vinyl release through Jackalope! Records, the same folks behind the music festival Jackalope Jamboree

It was recorded at Singing Sands in Portland, OR over the span of 10 days. It was engineered by Kyle Cregan, mixed by Ryan Oxford and mastered by Amy Dragon at Telegraph Mastering.
