“As a former member of the School of Rock, Maggie has perfected her vocal and guitar talents and has put them on display performing live along the east coast and even at the 40th Anniversary of Woodstock concert held at the National Mall in Washington D.C.”

“Her new three-song EP begins with the reflection of a relationship gone bad in "It's All Pretend." She draws you in with her sweet voice in "You'll Be Around," before closing with "These Are The Nights" as her talents continue to grow and amaze.”

“Maggie Anderson introduced herself with heartache and leaves this small stage with the sort of stories to make your heart race, cheeks flush crimson and make you want to stay a while longer.”

“Here’s to hoping that Anderson is able to expand the styles and approaches that she broached on this all too brief EP to a full-length album, as I plan on warping these tracks through the rest of the year.

“These Are The Nights blends together the styles and approaches taken during It’s All Pretend and You’ll Be Around. Anderson’s mastery of tempo during this track makes this into the EP’s strongest effort. While the track continues to succeed in the singer-songwriter paradigm, I feel hints of a pop-punk (Alkaline Trio, Bayside) delivery peppering the track. While Anderson’s vocals are dominant during These Are The Nights, the guitar work plays an absolutely vital role in highlighting and further pushing the vocals to a higher Read more: http://neufutur.com/2014/08/maggie-anderson-self-titled-acoustic-ep-review/#ixzz3GA0wcAC7”

“You’ll Be Around is a sea change from It’s All Pretend as Anderson speeds up her delivery. By bringing in more complex time signatures, the track is able to shine amongst other the works of contemporary performers. The sheer confidence that is present on You’ll Be Around is endearing, while the acoustic guitar work provides both string and percussive elements to the mix.

“It’s All Pretend is a catchy effort that allows Maggie Anderson’s vocals and instrument to shine brightly. This track has hints of Yael Naim, Ingrid Michaelson, and She & Him, with some of the most tender and softly-stated acoustic guitar work. The track’s charm ensures that listeners will be singing along whenever the track comes up on their MP3 player.

“She is not afraid to take musical risks and completely devotes herself to the style of each song.”
