New York, NY (Top40 Charts)
Race The Tide, the latest project from Los Angeles singer-songwriter Jesse
Macht, has released the single "New Blood." It premiered at BlackBook, who praised the "poignant" track's "haunted, seductive guitar riffs and mournful sweep of strings."
Macht's previous solo albums include The Acts of Providence and Suitcase Heart. In 2013, he was diagnosed with an SVT, an extra electrical impulse in the heart that pushed his heart rate to over 260 BPM. Since then, he has been unabashedly pursuing his dreams. He recently created his own home concert symposium/salon series "Sunsets At," inspired by Ted Talks, The Moth, and Sofar Sounds. His mission is to create a space where people can share their work, research, hobbies, stories, and passions with audiences who truly want to listen and be transformed.
This spring, Race The Tide is set for another national tour of the "Sunsets At" series, and anticipating continued support from brands such as Airstream Trailers, Crosley, Navitas, and Audio Technica after successful partnerships in 2017. Watch a trailer for "Sunsets At" HERE.
Macht was born and raised in Los Angeles. While his brother Gabriel Macht (Suits) branched into acting, Jesse
attended school at Washington University in St. Louis and chose to pursue a career in music. He's co-written with writers including Sean Douglas
(Thomas Rhett, Jason Derulo, Demi Lovato), RoboPop (Maroon 5), James
Smith (The Spring
Standards), Katie Boeck (Spring Awakening), Tyler Lyle (Pulse), Audra Mae and many more.
Under his own name, Macht has released two singer/songwriter efforts: The Acts of Providence, and Suitcase Heart, which garnered him recognition as AXS' Top 3 Los Angeles Breakout Artist of 2014. His music has been featured in film, television and commercials, including LA Ink, The Voice, and Good Time Max.
Race The Tide is an album that's rooted in the idea of collaboration. While Macht wrote, played guitar, and keyboards on much of the record, as well as co-produced the effort with Justin Tocket (Andres Osborne, Pet Fangs), other players include Rob Humphreys and Gavin Salmon on drums, Tyler Carrol (Allen Stone) on bass, Ken Belcher on guitar, and Will Herrington (Lukas Graham), Mark McKee, and Ben Allemon (Ryan Adams, Grace
Potter) on keys.
Race The Tide will perform at Hotel Cafe in Los Angeles on May 18.
