Chicago-born Tampa-based self-taught award-winning over-hyphenating eclectic multi-instrumentalist singer-songwriter Maggie Council writes genre-crossing mostly-acoustic songs on guitar, piano and bass that she calls "Organic, progressive Americana."
Intelligent lyrics. Cage-free vocals. Slinky grooves.
With influences from art rock to Chicago blues, Motown to mbaqanga, and funk to folk, Maggie's mostly-acoustic music is minimally processed; no click tracks, steroids or artificial flavors.
Maggie has played bills with a diverse array of pop, blues, folk and rock artists from Acoustic Alchemy and Joan Armatrading to Ronnie Milsap and Maura O'Connell to Michelle Shocked and Al Stewart to Townes van Zandt and Warren Zevon. Not to mention Hot Tuna, Guy Clark, The Band, Steve Forbert, Steve Earle, Robert Earl Keene, Jr. and Chris Smither.
