Album Notes
Born and raised near 125th street in New York City, Ms. Maggart is the first daughter of Broadway veterans Brandon Maggart and Diane McAfee, and the sister of singer/songwriter Fiona Apple.

Ms. Maggart created a stir in the Los Angeles cabaret community in March 2001 with her debut show in Hollywood at the Gardenia, where Les Traub of Cabaret Scenes declared her "destined to become a major cabaret star." Gardenia owner Tom Rolla subsequently invited Maggart to perform an open-ended weekly run, just as her mentor, Andrea Marcovicci, had done before her.

Fostered by Marcovicci and Michael Feinstein, Ms. Maggart was introduced to cabaret society, appearing as guest artist with Feinstein and Marcovicci at various cabaret venues around the United States; notably Feinstein's at the Regency in Manhattan, the Plush Room in San Francisco, and the Oak Room in Manhattan.

On her own, Maude made her New York City debut at The Oak Room at the Algonquin Hotel. She has since held extended engagements at the Plush Room in San Francisco, The Gardenia in Hollywood, Schroeder's Cabaret in San Diego, The Royal Room in Palm Beach and Danny's Skylight Room in Manhattan. In all locations she garnered all-around top critical acclaim and also feature stories in The San Francisco Chronicle, Time Out New York, and the Boca Raton News for her tribute to the women of the nineteen-twenties: "Shaking the Blues Away: a 1920's Cabaret"and her current show "It's The Talk Of The Town: a 1933 Songbook."

Maude has performed at Manhattan's Town Hall in the annual Mabel Mercer Foundation's Cabaret Convention for the past four consecutive years, and in May 2004 she co-starred in the critically acclaimed "Easy To Love: The Love Songs Of Cole Porter", directed by Andrea Marcovicci for The 92nd Street Y.


to write a review


I guess they do still make 'em like that
I've always been a fan of the old standards, and this CD delivers. Familiar tracks such as "Love for Sale" and "Star Dust" are nicely balanced with lesser heard treasures like "Shaking the Blues Away" and "J'ai Deux Amours." It's a great mix. Miss Maggart's voice is somehow both melancholy and lilting. In a world awash in "American Idol"-style voices, Miss Maggart's is a deliteful and welcome change. I enjoyed the simple piano accompaniment but was left wanting more. And then, as if to answer my request, her follow-up album, WITH SWEET DESPAIR, added violin. Terrific!

best on the vocal road in a loonng time.
ggreat cd excellent quality.


I loved it! I played it at work and it was delightful
Outstanding quality and fun to listen to. Took me to a lovely place!

Laura Plourde

Reminiscent of Piaf
When I first listened to this CD I was reminded of Edith Piaf, so I listened to a CD of hers next. In fact, their voices are quite different, but I did realize what is the same: the compelling, mesmerizing intimacy of both singers' delivery. This is mood music of the highest order.


crystal clear voice, haunting songs
Maude Maggart's voice is crystal pure, the songs on the CD are beautiful and haunting, or sometimes, kind of funny. I especially love Stardust.


Utterly gorgeous voice, with plaintive bitter-sweet quality.
Maude Maggart gives a whole new dimension to familiar, even tired standards. The use of superb, slightly off-key piano and solo Yiddish-style violin is at times heart-breaking.
I strongly urge Ms Maggart and her management to push her records over here to England, where I know she'd be hugely successful.

Exquisite taste and a voice for the ages--all of them.
Although young, Maude Maggart has a marvelous feel for these ageless songs from the 1920s. Their composers would be thrilled by her obvious respect and affection for their creations. She sings them simply and honestly, without jazzing them up, in a voice that other reviewers here have accurately called pure and haunting. Amd she brings powerful emotion to them so many years after they were written. Don't wait another minute before ordering this spectacular CD!


One of the best new artists I have heard in a long time!
I first heard Maude on Prairie Home Companion and was so impressed that I immediately went to her website and ordered both her cd's. Her voice and interpretation of these old songs is so beautiful! She is my newest muscial obsession!

Look For the Silver Lining
A superior artist in a field rife with many good voices. Miss Maggart should have a long career. I will be purchasing more of her performances.


Some of my favorite songs, sung with real style and emotion.
