ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Winner of Hawaii's 2017and 2015 Na Hoku Hanohano Award for Jazz Album of the Year, and nominated both times for Female Vocalist of the Year, Maggie releases her cover of "In My Life"
Maggie has recorded with jazz luminaries, Brian Bromberg, Bill Cunliffe, Bob Sheppard, Grant Geissman, Doug Lunn and Doug Webb and, featured here on "In My Life", guitarist Larry Koonse.
Maggie Herron, a prolific song writer, pianist and vocalist was born in Muskegon, Mi. into a family of 12 children (she was number 9). She began taking piano lessons as a little girl and was the church organist by the age of 10. At 13, she performed Beethoven’s 2nd Piano Concerto with the Muskegon Symphony Orchestra and at 14 she was awarded a scholarship to Interlochen Center for the Arts, placing in the top 5 finalists in their piano concerto competition. She continued to study classical piano and voice throughout high school, performing in recitals and concerts, talent shows and musical theater productions.
At 18, with the late ’60’s idealism at her back, she was inspired up and out of her family home. She hitch-hiked across the U.S., landing in the Olympic National Rainforest in Washington State. There, in an off-the-grid cabin with only an old upright piano at her disposal, she started exploring pop and folk music, writing songs and weaving the new sounds with her classical training.
Maggie began performing in Seattle, playing at the top of the Camlin Hotel, The Sorrento Hotel and appearing as a guest performer at Jazz Alley. Her exposure to other veteran Seattle musicians introduced her to R&B and jazz. Her writing and performing style continued to morph with these new influences. Eventually the gloomy weather propelled her even further west, where she found herself at home in Hawaii.
Maggie has been living, writing, swimming, recording and performing on Oahu, Lanai, and Hawaii’s “Big Island” for decades.
She can be found 4 nights a week at the sweetest spot in Honolulu, Lewers Lounge. There with bassist, Dean Taba and reed man, Rocky Holmes, she’s found the best of both worlds -the stunning natural backdrop of Waikiki and a Steinway 7’ grand piano.
