Jace McCloy is a professional Baritone singer-songwriter from Lansing, Michigan. He is a 2015 alumni of Lansing Catholic High School, and he graduated in 2020 from Central Michigan University with a Bachelor of Science in Music (Primary Instrument: Voice).
His time at CMU was nothing short of impressive. He participated in Chamber Singers, was an invited soloist at university-sponsored events, and even starred in university operas and musicals! His most notable roles consist of The Mikado in The Mikado (2018), Bishop/Ensemble in Shrek: The Musical (2018), Judge Turpin in Sweeney Todd (2019), Henry Ford in Ragtime (2019), and Don Pedro in Beatrice & Benedict (2020). During the summer of 2019, Jace was also cast in the summer stock season for Dunes Summer Theatre in Michigan City, Indiana. Here, he had the pleasure of playing Luther Billis in South Pacific and Lester/Billy Bob Blood in Hansel and Gretel Meet the Swamp Witch.
After graduating, Jace moved to Chicago for three years, where he got his start with Opera Inter Alia and Chicago Cabaret Professionals. He has worked with the likes of Susan Arjmand, Stewart Thompson, Frieda Lee, Anne & Mark Burnell, Carla Gordon, Hilary Feldman, and many others. Everyone mentioned played a part in his successful performances, including his CCP debut in Passing the Torch in April, 2022! Jace also had the pleasure of working with the incredible Woodstock Playhouse Cast of 2022 in Woodstock, New York! During this summer stock season, he played Reverend Shaw in Footloose, Cogsworth in Beauty and the Beast, Selsdon in Noises Off, Herr Schultz in Cabaret, and George Wilson in Gatsby: An American Musical. Upon returning to Chicago, Jace was cast as Steve/Peter Understudy in Beverly Arts Center’s production of The Christmas Schooner (2022), which was an incredible experience.
While he has had an amazing run thus far, 2023 was the year that pushed Jace’s career even further. He had successful performances in Red Hour Cabaret in February and 100 Years of Disney in July, on top of releasing his highly anticipated album, Development in March, which shows his abilities as a songwriter. In August, he debuted a new song, “New Life”, from his upcoming album, Baptism. It was this song that helped him win the 2023 Emerging Artists Showcase, a victory that he is incredibly thankful for.
In his debut show, Acceptance, Jace paints a unique picture with a mix of Pop/Jazz songs, Musical Theatre pieces, and original works. He will be joined by Jeff English on piano, Kevin Schulz on bass, and Steve Thompson on drums.
