Introducing Lexington-born urban pop singer/songwriter MAGGIE GABBARD with a voice that's beyond her years. Maggie started at singing at a young age as she was turned on to music by her father's record collection, where she was exposed to The Beatles, Jimi Hendrix, Bob Dylan and discovered the ever incredible Janis Joplin at 14 years old. 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 on artists' like Norah Jones, Mary J. Blige and Alicia Keys also have 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 not giving up, keeping your head held high and carrying on through it all. She is definitely one of the best raw talents out and one to watch as her music carries the right unique blend of indie pop and a touch of soul and with her beautiful raspy and powerful vocals, she'll have you hooked at first listen.
