Here at KitSound, we want to support and shout about inspiring emerging bands, and provide a platform from which they can share their stories, nurture their passion for music, and continue to create organic musical conversations to inspire, and bring us together through their music.
Born in Los Angeles and raised in the world of show business (his father, veteran actor Stephen Macht and his brother, Gabriel Macht currently stars as “Harvey Specter” in the tv series, “Suits”), Macht’s music has been featured in dozens of film and television placements including The Voice, LA and NY Ink, Fox’s The Next Great American Band, Keeping Up With The Kardashians, and much of Viacom’s programming. He has toured and co-written with many notable composers including Sean Douglas (Thomas Rhett, Jason Derulo, Demi Lovato), RoboPop (Maroon 5, Gym Class Heroes), Tyler Lyle (The Midnight) and many more. Under his own name, Macht has released two singer/songwriter efforts: The Acts of Providence (produced by Aaron Tap, guitarist for Matt Nathanson) and Suitcase Heart, the latter of which garnered him recognition as AXS’ Top 3 Los Angeles Breakout Artist of 2014.
While Macht writes, sings, and plays the guitar and keyboards on much of the Race The Tide EP, he also co-produces the effort with Justin Tocket (Anders Osborne, Pet Fangs). Other players include Rob Humphreys (David Ryan Harris) and Gavin Salmon on drums, Tyler Carroll (Allen Stone) on bass, Ken Belcher on guitar, and Will Herrington (Lukas Graham), and Ben Allemon (Ryan Adams, Grace Potter) on keys.
