Rona Mac

Rona Mac (she/her,) is a self-invented, genre-fusing, queer singer-songwriter bringing us guitar driven tracks which provide a hooky bed for her haunting vocals and sophisticated lyricism, resulting in raw, lo-fi indie-pop heavily influenced by Americana-Folk and Country.

She records and produces in her caravan at home in rural West Wales, and her music is imbued with her surroundings of rugged cliffs and wide open spaces. Hence, her music comes unfiltered and full of feeling, as she says “If I can talk about things we’ve been told we shouldn’t, and help people connect to feelings they tucked away in their teens, then I’ll be happy when I’m old”.

Rona Mac has recently played at FOCUS Wales Showcase, Sŵn Fest, Half moon Putney, Clwb Ifor Bach, New York’s CMJ music marathon and Great Escape.

Rona’s upcoming release ‘Shades Of Ham’ (due March22) sees Rona swing between raw, lo-fi laments with stunningly layered, rough-at-the-edges vocals, and crunchy guitar solos that weave in and out of trad-folk sounds and atmospheric rhythmic twists. The work effortlessly takes her home production to euphoric new heights, and she’ll be touring it this in the Spring, starting with BBC6Music Festival.
