Named one of Pittsburgh Post Gazette’s “Young Pittsburghers To Watch”, Maddie Georgi may be just that. Her latest EP Glory Bound is set to release in January of 2013 and as the title alludes, she is destined for big things.
Her first EP Go was released back in 2009. Among the six tracks was “Take My Hand,” her first original song that was inspired by her autistic brother, Jake. The song gained attention throughout the autism community and inspired Maddie to keep writing music.
Since her debut EP, Maddie has been performing all over the Pittsburgh region. In 2009, she competed in CMT’s Music City Madness competition, with her song "Gone Away Again" taking 2nd place out of thousands of entries. But that wasn’t the last time Maddie crossed paths with CMT; you may recognize her voice singing the theme song for CMT’s sitcom Working Class.
Maddie has become a fan favorite in the Pittsburgh music scene, with performances on First Night, Light Up Night, Three Rivers Arts Festival, Three Rivers Regatta, and setting the stage at Hard Rock Cafe, Hartwood Acres, Stage AE, Club Café, the New Hazlett Theater, and in the heart of downtown’s Market Square.
Maddie has also received rave reviews for her rendition of The National Anthem, which she has performed for Panthers, Pirates, and Steeler games. In 2010, she participated in the New York Songwriter’s Circle with her song “Go” earning her second place, and a trip to NYC to perform at “The Bitter End.”
Her new EP Glory Bound which features some co-written tracks with Pittsburgh favorite Bill Deasy, has sounds ranging from funky Maroon 5 to soulful Adele and everything in between. Citing influences such as KT Tunstall, Grace Potter, Stevie Nicks, and Carrie Underwood, her songs are relatable, thoughtfully-crafted, and above all – catchy!
When she is not pursuing her music career, Maddie is a full-time student at Allegheny College, studying Communication Arts.
“Balancing school work with the production of this EP was one of the most challenging things I’ve ever done, but it was absolutely worth it.”
