About Maggie Gabbard

October 1st, 2015 by admin

At 18 years old, Maggie’s voice and songs seem beyond her years.

Born in Lexington, KY., Maggie started singing at a young age.

Turned on to music by her dad’s record collection, she was exposed to The Beatles, Jimi Hendrix, and Bob Dylan. She discovered Janis Joplin at 14 years old.

“It’s at that point that I began to listen to the words”, Maggie says. Maggie’s obsession with songwriting became apparent when notebook after notebook of her lyrics were found by her mom, under her bed.

Later on, artists like Norah Jones, Mary J. Blige, and Alicia Keys had a powerful influence on her singing. The marriage of these musical influences with her unique spirit is evident in her songs.

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.
