A native of Colorado, Maggie blends a soulful and rich sound to reflect the lands she calls home.

Recently partnering with Austin based production company Invengo Productions, she recorded and released her first solo holiday album 'Bows and Paper' which received airtime in several countries as well as numerous accolades and support from web based podcasts.
After the warm reception of the solo EP, Maggie decided to embark on a creative journey with Invengo producer again highlighting her raw power and sheer passion of voice with the EP 'Anathallo' which in Greek means 'revival'.
