Bringing together Nashville style with Boston swagger, Alec MacGillivray brings a party atmosphere wherever he goes. The former college football player made the decision to forego his senior season on the field and pursue a music career full time in 2015. Since then, the 25 year old MacGillivray has been nominated for six New England Music Awards, a Boston music award and his songs have been streamed over 4 million times. His song “Bad Day to Be a Bud Light” has become a viral party anthem in over 60 countries and made him a must-see act on the rise. With his electric live performances leading the way, MacGillivray has played in over 20 states and supported major acts such as Sam Hunt, Keith Urban, Kane Brown, Thomas Rhett, Dierks Bentley and many more on tour. Alec is releasing his newest single “Pretty Things” on July 12 and is currently in the process of writing and recording new music to get out to fans as soon as possible.
In February of 2018, Alec formed the rock band The Ultra. The Ultra's debut EP reached the Top 10 on the Billboard Heatseeker chart. Following the success of the EP, the band toured nationally and had a song featured on Spotify's Hard Rock playlist. The band was nominated for 4 New England Music Awards, a Boston Music Award and has been streamed over 1 million times.
