Mackenzie Shivers was stuck on Cape Cod.
At the onset of the worldwide pandemic, Shivers retreated to the Cape to seek refuge from her home in New York City. Armed with an old guitar purchased by her great-grandmother, gifted to her by her father, the pianist experimented with alternate tunings guided by Laura Marling's online guitar tutorials. Released from the pressure of touring and promoting, she unexpectedly wrote a batch of songs that would become the foundation for her latest album Rejection Letter.
The ten original songs are bolder and braver than past projects, digging into more personal, lyrical territory and the desire to help others feel less alone in their uncertainties and fears. This album is Shivers' way of speaking up, speaking out and embracing her rebellious spirit.
"A masterpiece." –Jack Anderson, KUTX
