Meet Maggie B from Scituate!

That breathy, soulful, melodic rasp will hook you in, and take you places. Listening to Maggie B, you get the feeling you’ve already heard her. Hints of Maren Morris, Halsey and Dua Lipa sprinkle the vibe in Maggie’s vocal recipe. This New England singer/songwriter sounds like she has already been on radio. Her delivery is polished, strong, professional. But certainly not to the point where it loses any of that organic singer/songwriter feel.

Maggie Burlingame has been at the music game since the first grade, likely part of the reason she is in a grade above most at her age. Her father played a big role in her musical path, providing live music in the home and encouraging her to get on stage at a very young age. All that experience, and all that exposure to all kinds of music, has led this Scituate girl to an ocean of possibilities.
