Steel Maggie made her independent debut with the EP release of Demolition Woman in 2018. Heavily influenced by Lady Gaga, Marina and the Diamonds, The Killers, and Christine and the Queens, her sonic landscape is a shimmering marriage of 1980s-reminiscent dance pop and her love of dramatic, literary, and mythological themes. With powerful vocals and musings on self-worth, duality, addiction and recovery, she delivers both incisive introspection and poignant revelations in every song.
Singles “Warning Label” and “Holy Ground” were released in 2019 and 2020, respectively, which solidified Steel Maggie’s status as the self-appointed demigoddess of dance pop. As an artist with bipolar disorder, also recovering from alcoholism with 13 months of sobriety, Steel Maggie envisions her music to be an audio injection of pure inner strength and self-worth for herself and others.
Her new single, “Out of Eden,” released on February 5th, 2021, is a theatrical and emotionally charged work of dance synth pop about the price of freeing your soul; the exhilaration and confusion of ending the internal war; the joy and grief from living in a new identity.
