Maggie Szabo - Tidal Waves & Hurricanes

Maggie Szabo
CD title : Tidal Waves & Hurricanes
Genre: Pop / R&B
Country:  Canada

MAGGIE SZABO A soulful Canadian singer who’s won over audiences worldwide, with 13 million views on YouTube, Maggie Szabo comes from small town Ontario and is now an accomplished singer/performer living and working in Los Angeles. Maggie honed her craft at a young age in her hometown of Dundas.

Following her high school graduation, she moved to Nashville to continue the quest to improve her writing and performing. Her original sound, infused with soulful pop melodies, secured Maggie a record deal with Linus Entertainment in Ontario.

Her debut pop album Now Hear Me Out was released in November 2012. All songs were co-written by Maggie, with production by Justin Gray (Joss Stone), Gavin Bradley (Nelly Furtado) and Tanya Leah. The single Lovesick was released to heavy rotation on Canadian airwaves, and Maggie was named Bell Media’s Emerging Artist—personally chosen by famed blogger Perez Hilton as his “Can YOU Sing?” contest winner. He hailed Maggie as a superstar on the rise.

Since living in Los Angeles, Maggie has performed to sold-out shows at the infamous Viper Room, House of Blues, and famed venue the Hotel Café. She also wrote and recorded her song Tidal Waves and Hurricanes. The music video premiered exclusively by Ryan Seacrest and has garnered great reviews from media and fans. She’s also won the 2014 Toronto Independent Music Award in the category for Best Pop.

With a quickly growing fan-base and a social media following that tops some of the nation’s most established pop artists, Maggie has effectively used the internet to showcase and market her songs to the world and her dedicated fans. She’s now gearing up for the next exciting chapter in her musical journey—an album of new songs and a tour to follow.

Fortunately, Richard is more than ready to school you in the roots of rock, thanks to 'The Fabulous Rock 'N' Roll Songbook. READ MORE
