A soulful Canadian singer who has won over audiences worldwide, with more than 13 million views on YouTube alone, Maggie Szabo comes from small-town Ontario. She is now an accomplished singer/performer living and working in Los Angeles.
Szabo 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 Szabo 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 Szabo, 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 Szabo 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 since 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 social media following, 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, with a tour to follow.
In her downtime in Los Angeles, Szabo “loves spending an afternoon writing and drinking coffee at the Bossy Wife Café in West Hollywood.” She also loves stepping into one of the stores of her favorite designer, Free People. When asked how her involvement with Lipstick Sister has affected her journey, she says, “Being surrounded by such amazing women is empowering. I think it is important for us ladies to stick together and grow as a team.” For more info on Maggie, visit: firstname.lastname@example.org www.allaboutmaggie.com
