Margot MacDonald / Press

“Young talent Margot MacDonald, who played an original number along with a full-throttle cover of Led Zeppelin’s “Immigrant Song,” was a high point.”

“Listen to her music, and you might get an idea why such a young woman is finding success as a full-time musician. It's her voice: a little Paula Cole, a little Dolores O'Riordan of the Cranberries...”

“Our Favorite Discoveries From The 2013 CMJ Music Festival”

“Watching singer and musician Margot MacDonald perform is like witnessing a summer storm rise … it’s as riveting to watch as it is to hear”

“Her original songwriting is moving rapidly in a direction that is unmistakably her own and that really highlights her unstoppably strong voice … a voice so refined, so bold, so versatile, and so fresh … Margot is definitely an artist to watch.”

“A young woman wise beyond her years, with soaring vocals and wicked guitar defining her original work.”

“Her growls and yowls and wails embody the heritage of everyone from Stevie Nicks to Whitney Houston to Sheryl Crow.”

“In a nutshell, she embodies what Simon Cowell will be spending months searching for — the elusive 'X Factor.”

“MacDonald created rich, haunting arrangements in a process that was mesmerizing to witness ... Cute, charming, multi-instrumental and boasting a voice that draws instant comparisons to Sarah McLachlan, MacDonald shames us all.”

“Almost certainly the best young female artist on this planet today.”

“... the vocals on offer here are technically flawless – her rich harmonies becoming a recurring motif that weave Canvas together into a cohesive showcase.”

“She applies tones and chord progressions in ever more deliberate strokes and hues ... her soaring voice reaches far past the rafters to some higher place where the oxygen is thinner and the company is sparse.”

“Margot is an absolute winner! She is the future of American rock.”

“When Margot performs, everyone listens ... She has that extra unexplainable star quality and soulfulness that emanates from some place really deep and that allows her to connect wholly and intimately with an audience.”

“MacDonald is reassuringly human—shy, even—but when she sings, she transforms into an embodiment of confidence. And she has all the reason to be confident ... During concerts she loops her own voice on itself—sometimes two dozen times—to create complex rhythms and sounds from the stage. And on stage is where she was meant to be ... for the young singer-songwriter who lands shows at venues like Wolf Trap and Strathmore in Maryland, the road ahead looks promising.”

“Absolutely stunning! Her voice stopped me in my tracks.”

“Truly an artist to be dealt with.”

“Overwhelmed by a unique/original voice that enthralls and captivated by her creativity.”

“What an incredible voice! Margot is stunning.”

“Margot is amazing!”

“A rising star.”

“Evokes Amy Lee. Has the chops and the pipes. And kicks butt.”
