Since the release of her self-titled EP earlier this year, Maggie Chapman has been praised as a “must listen” (Kings of A&R) and last week, Teen Vogue named her one of 10 new artists “you’re going to love.” Maggie is releasing new music this fall with her debut album, Vignette out on September 16. One of the LP’s new tracks is her emotional ballad, “It Should’ve Been You,” which was inspired by a true story. The song premiered last week on Idolator – check it out here.
Maggie explains the inspiration behind naming her album, Vignette: “I love to read, especially the classic works of authors like Shakespeare, F. Scott Fitzgerald and Edgar Allan Poe. It’s a part of who I am and holds a place in my heart that I often pull from when I’m writing songs. In literature, a vignette is a short, well-written, descriptive scene, not entirely a full story. This seemed like the perfect word to describe my debut album because in so many ways, it is the ‘little vine’ that the music I make in the future will stem from. Vignette is merely Part One of an infinite collection of stories and songs to come.”
Maggie wrote or co-wrote every song on the 10-track release, which is produced by GRAMMY® award winning producer Luke Laird (Kacey Musgraves). Maggie has been featured by outlets such as Rolling Stone, USA Today, American Songwriter, Kings of A&R, Nylon Mag’s Daily Newsletter and more. She recently opened up for Tyler Hilton at his sold out shows in Nashville and Atlanta.
