Maggie Rains has performed, not only across America in multiple states, but recently at Shoutfest, SXSW and Red Gorilla Festival in Austin and she has multiple festival bookings over the summer of 2018
Recently partnering with Austin Based company Invengo Productions and their producer Joshua Rumer, Maggie released a solid Christmas EP featuring revamped and playful versions of holiday classics such as White Christmas and many others which is still garnishing airplay and placement to this very day including coveted slots on Women of Substance. Featuring stellar jazz players such as Chris Trafton, Janie Cowan, Danny Levin, Toshi Yanagi and Xavier to name a few, the album breathed new life into the classics which Maggie felt was needed. The album received airplay in a few different countries as well as some notice from XM radio outlets here in the states. Her versions were added to over 3 dozen Spotify playlists and counting.
Feeding off that formula of reviving the hit standards, Maggie released her new EP Anathallo, which translates into 'revive' in Greek. They hit the studio once again to creatively package up some serious classics such as Take Me To The Water, Lift Me Up, Grandma's Hands and a few more. Rumer and a team of greats including Brian Mendes, Thomas Heritage, Trevor Helt and more came together to add decisive punches and growl to what were commonly known as jazz standards from the likes of Etta James and Billie Holiday. The tracks are gripping and precise with the balance of smooth coming from God Bless The Child and People Get Ready.
She always performs with a powerhouse backing band that ranges from a duo to a 6 piece. It is a full sound for any occasion and always in the pocket. She has a road crew at times as well to make load in and load out super efficient.
Catch her this summer at a festival near you!
