Singer Songwriter Maggie with host Ric Drasin on ActorsE Chat
Maggie Szabo is a singer/songwriter originally from Ontario, Canada and considered a Canadian Pop Powerhouse. Maggie is best known as a YouTube Sensation and has won audiences with over 13 million views on Vevo and YouTube.
Maggie began writing songs and singing at a young age in which she took the opportunity to explore and perform in as many opportunities as she could. Following Maggie’s completion of high school, she packed her car and drove to Nashville, Tennessee to work on developing her songwriting abilities.
Maggie’s stint in Nashville was an amazing time for her as she created fresh new sounds infused with soulful pop melodies. Maggie notes that she was inspired by her experiences and surroundings. It was also during this time that she was offered a record deal with Linus Entertainment (Ontario).
Linus Entertainment then released Maggie’s debut pop album “Now Hear Me Out” in November 2012 launching her officially into the music world. All of the songs on the album were co-written by Maggie along with Justin Gray, Gavin Bradley, and Tanya Leah. This experience helped Maggie to grow her online fan-base and her social media following, which has gained a lot of attention as it competes with some of the nation’s most established pop artists. Maggie’s debut single “Lovesick” was a hit across the Canadian airplay as it was on heavy rotation among radio stations across the nation.
Being in LA, Maggie has gained additional exposure by playing her music to sold-out crowds in various live venues such as the House of Blues, Viper Room, Molly Malones, and the Hotel Café.
Maggie’s latest song “Tidal Waves and Hurricanes” was released on February 8th, and is available on iTunes.
