After 12 years, one album, two EPs, a handful of singles, an impressive synch licensing resume, and nearly a thousand shows, pop singer-songwriter-pianist Maggie McClure felt ready to make a bold new statement: A majestic and atmospheric album of her most intimate songwriting, Time Moves On (released in Feb. 2014 and produced by Justin Glasco). “I feel extremely connected to this album, it’s very personal, and I did a lot experimenting. I didn’t want to play it safe,” the Los Angeles-based artist says.
“My songs are basically excerpts from my journal edited to fit the music,” Maggie says. Her gift for confessional songwriting that’s broad appealing has enabled her music to garner plum synch placements. Her songs have appeared in the film Cowgirls N' Angels, and in such television shows as Cougar Town, Dr. Phil, The Real World, Worst Prom Ever, The Hills, The City, The Vineyard, and The Young And The Restless. As a performer, she’s done a staggering 750+ shows across the United States. Some live highlights have been Main Stage Showcases at NACA Nationals in Boston and at MUSEXPO in Hollywood; on separate occasions opening for Sara Bareilles and Tony Lucca; and singing the National Anthem at the first NBA playoff game in Oklahoma history with more than 18,000 people in attendance. Additionally, Maggie was a featured background extra on Matthew Morrison's (Mr. Schu in Glee) music video for “It Don't Mean A Thing,” and she sang the role of Violetta on the English version of Disney Channel Latin America's Violetta (Season 1) that is currently airing in the UK and across the globe.
A major factor of Maggie’s success—aside from her transcendent artistry—has been her hardworking nature. She is completely independent, and currently assumes the roles of label, booking agent, and manager (although she is always looking to add on to her team). “I’m a true believer that if you want something to happen, then you just have to find a way to make it happen.”
