Music From The Mailbag – Maggie Szabo

We received some music for review from Maggie Szabo.  Her press release is below the video along with information on where to get her music.  We love Canadian artists here, and Maggie is a definite Canuck, from Dundas, Ontario.  Give it a listen, and check out the release.  A very nice tune and a very good and soulful vocal.  I give it a thumbs up and added it to our library.

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. Maggie also won the 2014 Toronto Independent Music Award in the category for Best Pop, and most recently was the Pop/Top40 winner for the International Songwriting Competition.

Aside from having her original music placed in many notable film and TV projects, Maggie has recently landed two co-written songs and is the featured vocalist on the upcoming album for German electronic DJ, Schiller, who has so far sold 7 million albums worldwide. The album is scheduled to release in early 2016.

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.

Music From The Mailbag -Everywhere”Shades At Night”

Nice tune in the mailbag recently by Swedish Alt band Everywhere and their new tune “Shades at Night”.  A catchy pop tune with some 1980’s legs.  I can see it showing up on your local Alt station at some point in the future.  Enjoy.

Time For A Comeback

Hi All

Attempting a comeback…..once again.  To those waiting on me to review or comment on a request, I truly apologize.  Going forward, I will trying to concentrate solely on these submissions as well as people who have kind enough to follow the blog, my twitter feed, the Facebook page or Google+.  One added kick, we have worked on a new project lately that could involve you.  By involve, I may ask (no prejudice) if the submitted music could be used as soundtrack for videos that we will be producing for the project.  Just a warning, and I assure you a no will be accepted without issue.  I fully respect your rights as an artist.

The project is titled JohnLoriEh (johnlorieh.com) and is cross posted into YouTube, Facebook, Tumblr and Twitter.  All work would be fully credited.
