Exceptionally versatile singer and songwriter Maggie Rose will release three additional Digital 45s this summer, leading up to a planned album this fall (TBD). All co-produced by Maggie and stamped with her affinity for finely-crafted melodies and intricate storytelling, her latest and forthcoming releases encompass what she's been preparing for her entire career, music she's held inside herself and now fully able to lay down.
In March, Maggie released “It’s You” and “Smooth.” Rolling Stone Country calls "It's You" "a giant, throwback soul ballad that shows off her dynamic vocals [and] contains shades of Aretha Franklin," and "Smooth" "a supremely funky rocker with hints of Grace Potter, Janis Joplin". These two tracks show the two ends of the spectrum on which the forthcoming LP lives.
These new tracks follow her Fall Digital 45 featuring SiriusXM The Highway’s Top 10 hit "Just Getting By" and "Pull You Through,” all recorded during the same season. Tapping into a soulful country side in the vein of Linda Ronstadt and Adele, "Just Getting By" and "Pull You Through" encompass the lifetime of a relationship. "Just Getting By," which Maggie — a newlywed — wrote in the wake an argument with her husband, shows a couple wrestling to establish a unified identity. "Pull You Through", a soulful ballad, while she was engaged, imagining years into her future -- and the implication of the phrase “’til death do us part."
Last year, CMT named Maggie one of its Next Women of Country, and this year she has toured with Martina McBride and opened dates on Tim McGraw and Faith Hill's Soul2Soul tour. Taken with recent releases 'Dreams > Dollars' and 'The Variety Show Vol. 1,’ her forthcoming five-part release reveal a singer crafting a sound as varied and nuanced as her musical interests. "It's nice to be able to feed my creative spirit as often as I want and not be a one-dimensional artist," she says.
