"Hard to Describe, Easy to Love"
The Mad Maggies are celebrating ten years of making crazy good music together. What started as a one-off recording project in 2004 of Maggie Martin's original material, has become a wild, musical adventure spanning genres, crisscrossing musical borders and knocking over a few traditions along the way. Call their style what you will -- Californiana, world-inspired eclectic power folk, rockin’ new-ska, or an R&B fusion. Whatever it is, there’s no denying that it’s original and, simply put, big fun.
They’ve garnered radio play around the world, and even caught the ears of director Paul Haggis who used their “Sleepy Maggie” in a TV pilot.
The Mad Maggies tour whenever they can and so far have brought their music to all around California, especially the San Francisco Bay Area, and to the Midwest, the Pacific Northwest and Texas.
