Mags is a new singer/songwriter out of Elmira, ON. Born in Kitchener, ON, Mags is the 3rd oldest child of a family of 11. Clinically diagnosed with MDD (Major Depression Disorder) and PTSD (Post-traumatic Stress) in 2011, Mags views singing and song-writing not only as a talent but as an opportunity to inspire and encourage others to seek God through suffering and pain even when He feels farthest away. Currently, at age 17, Mags continues life as a dedicated student and remains solidly rooted in her faith.
With regards to her music career, Mags started singing at 13 by doing some background vocals on Christian rock CDs. Later, she officially jumped into the local music scene by being a finalist in the Faith FM's Shining Star competition in 2009 at the age of 14. After the contest, producer Andrew Horrocks (2010 Canadian Gospel Music Association Producer of the Year) was so impressed by her abilities that he encouraged her to pursue singing independently. In 2010, Maggie won the Wellesley Idol competition using entirely original material, and in 2011, at age 15, recorded (with producer Andrew Horrocks) her first album, "Dreaming of Christmas", with some of Canada's premier jazz musicians. Shortly after the album's release, it was nominated for Best Seasonal Album at the 2011 Canadian Gospel Music Association (CGMA) Awards. Mags has just released of her second album, "Missmatched", a pop album that is already getting radio play at major Christian radios across the Canada.
