It’s at that point where Maggie began to listen to the words and her obsession with songwriting became apparent when notebook after notebook of her lyrics were found under her bed by her mom. Later, artists’ like Norah Jones, Mary J. Blige, Alicia Keys, Rihanna, Beyonce and Hip Hop also had a powerful influence on her singing and the marriage of these musical influences are evident in her songs while her passionate, pop soulful melodies and lyrics tell her story. A story about never giving up, keeping your head held high and carrying on through the climb up the ladder of success love and pain. Maggie has been called “one of the best raw talents out there” and “the one to watch”. Maggie’smusic carries the right unique blend of urban indie pop and a touch of soul, and with her beautiful raspy and powerful vocals, she’ll has everyone hooked at first listen.
