Born in Lexington, KY., Maggie started at a young age singing. Turned on to music by her dads record collection, she was exposed to all the greats: The Beatles, Jimi Hendrix, Bob Dylan and discovered Janis Joplin at 14 years old. At that point Maggie says "I began to listen to the words." Maggie's obsession with songwriting became apparent when notebook after notebook of her lyrics were found by her mom under her bed.
Later on artists like Norah Jones, Mary J. Blige and Alicia Keys had a powerful influence on her singing. The marriage of these musical influences is evident in her songs. Her passionate, pop soulful melodies and lyrics tell her story. A story about not giving up, keeping your head held high and carrying on through it all.
19 year old Maggie is looking forward to her new release in 2014 titled "Luminosity". Song titles like "Shine", "Magnificent Me", "Rise", "HyperReal" continue with Maggie's positive and optimistic vision.
Maggie's first release "See The Sun" is available on iTunes and Amazon. It was produced & mixed by Ritchie Rubini.
