MAGS

Mags started singing at 13 by doing some background vocals on Christian rock CDs. Later, she officially jumped into the local music scene by being a finalist in the Faith FM's Shining Star competition in 2009 at the age of 14. After the contest, producer Andrew Horrocks (2010-11 Canadian Gospel Music Association Producer of the Year) encouraged her to pursue singing independently. In 2010, Maggie won the Wellesley Idol competition using entirely original material, and in 2011, at age 15, recorded (with producer Andrew Horrocks) her first album, Dreaming of Christmas, with some of Canadas premier jazz musicians. Shortly after the albums release, it was nominated for Best Seasonal Album at the 2011 Canadian Gospel Music Association (CGMA) Awards. In the spring of 2013, Mags released her debut pop album, Missmatched which promptly garnered her a second CGMA award nomination for Pop/Contemporary Album of the Year honors.  Her debut single, "Knock", has charted to the no,. 7 spot on Christian radio stations in Canada, and is being played in the United States, Australia and other countries.  In 2013, Mags' song "Lead Me to the River" was a finalist in the prestigious international John Lennon Songwriting Contest.  Mags has also been a winner in the American Idol Experience at Disneyworld and was a finalist in the 2013 Breakout Artist Competition.
