Maggie Spike

Maggie Spike, Maggie & Eric Gernerd, are a husband and wife singer-songwriter duo from rural eastern Pennsylvania. Known for their mixed bag of folk originals, they are not an easy band to label. Both Maggie's and Eric's songwriting styles combine folk/rock, jazz, acoustic pop, Celtic, psychedelic, reggae, Americana, and world rhythm influences.

The spring of 2019 brings the release of their third full length album "Dark Harbour", music that draws inspiration from the vast history of the Celtic musical traditions. Focusing on a more concept approach, Dark Harbour weaves an evocative and richly layered musical tapestry embracing hauntingly beautiful melodies, dreamy images of the sea, expressive vocals, and a diverse array of instruments. Themes include the mystery of life, love, loss, and spiritual fulfillment. Lyrically - sometimes whimsical, sometimes intensely ardent and passionate. From beginning to end Dark Harbour delivers on many emotional levels.

After spending 6 years as the principal songwriters in the acoustic world fusion band Fieldstone, the spring of 2005 marked the release of Maggie Spike's first album, "Passenger Station." They continued on with their multi-stylistic approach to songwriting releasing the album "Sol Paradise" in the summer of 2009. Sol Paradise (produced by Eric) brought together the many musical influences that helped shape their diverse writing styles into a cohesive and easily accessible sound.

Maggie's voice, as sweet as it is emotive, brings a sense of urgency with a touch of innocence to the music. Her soulful, lyrical sensibilities are wonderfully complemented by Eric's versatile and creative approach to producing.

Why do we do what we do? To us songwriting and performing are endless sources of inspiration. We enjoy the experience of sharing our songs with others in an entertaining and meaningful way. We wish to honor the creative forces that propel us and give us focus. Its such an amazing journey were all on. We go where the music takes us!
