MacKenzie O’Brien

Mackenzie O’Brien’s career has been on an upward trajectory in both Chicagoland and in Nashville, Tennessee.  Mackenzie has performed over 400 times in her first four years as a professional including performances at some of Nashville’s best known venues.  She has opened for country stars Chris Janson and Jordan Davis, National act The Vandoliers, and played a post concert after Lee Brice’s show.

Mackenzie grew up in Northern, Illinois close to the Wisconsin border and had only one career in mind since the age of four years.  Prior to then she had been given the nickname “Hummingbird” as she was often found playing alone and humming made up melodies.  This natural gift has stayed with her and she is a sought after melody driven songwriter.  To date, Mackenzie has landed over 25 songs on small market radio in the USA and Europe.

Mackenzie has drawn attention from music companies in both the USA and the UK. In the summer of 2020, Mackenzie signed a project deal with Merf Music Nashville that teamed her up with superstar writer Chris Wallin and Grammy nominated producer Eric Torres.  Their creation along with three other original songs became her 2020 EP “Hummingbird”!  Mackenzie is excited about her next project as well! She expects to release an album “Stars and Storms” in the spring of 2021 which features songs she wrote in Texas, Nashville, and at home in the midwest!

Over the last four years Mackenzie has caught the attention of various music notables that include John Oates, Lee Ann Womack, and various TV based competition shows.  In 2019 Mackenzie was awarded a grant funded by the National Endowment for the Arts to support her in building her brand and in 2020 she was endorsed by Portland based Breedlove Guitars.

Mackenzie continues to travel between Music City and Chicago and, at times, to other US cities to perform.
