Mystic: Mackenzie Nicole’s Mental Health Odyssey | Mackenzie Nicole | TEDxUniversityofNevada

Singer-songwriter Mackenzie Nicole discusses mental health within the context of her concept album that helped save her by its own creation, Mystic. Integrated into her talk are performances of three Mystic tracks, “A Cut Rose In Tap Water”, “The House Above The World”, and “Grow Old”. Intended to expand the dialogue surrounding mental health, Mackenzie’s talk is a discussion of trials and triumphs, of illness and wellness, of dark and light delivered with unadulterated honesty and ridden with raw vulnerability in hopes of connecting us all through our commonality of mental health. In the Spring of 2018, singer, songwriter, producer, and Strange Main (the pop music division of Strange Music) flagship artist Mackenzie Nicole unveiled her full-length debut album, The Edge, to critical acclaim. Its songs tallied over 1 million Spotify streams, and her videos totaled 8 million-plus views as she played to sold-out crowds. On a deeper level, she suffered a mental breakdown and fell into thoughts of suicide. Through a combination of self-actualization and therapy, she returned stronger than ever before. “When my psychiatrist diagnosed me with bipolar I disorder, I felt a sense of relief. This was the best news of my life,” explains Mackenzie. Now, she shares this struggle and subsequent victory by way of her latest album Mystic. The 12-track album Mystic tells Mackenzie’s story in a beautifully, reflective and vocally stunning way that begs for more than one listen. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at
