Canadian-born singer-songwriter Maggie Szabo is winning over listeners with her soulful voice and powerful lyrics. Now based in Los Angeles, she recently released her anthemic gospel-driven new single "Don't Give Up," a beautiful track dedicated to transgender youth around the world, in anticipation of her upcoming EP Worthy.
Maggie took some time out to curate a playlist of songs she's loving exclusively for Musical Notes Global. Here's what she had to say:
"Hey there! I made a Spotify playlist with some of my favourite songs right now. You can find it here:
There is something special about each of the songs on this playlist, and they all inspire me! Check out my top 8 picks in the playlist and what about them I love:
"Cranes in the Sky" - Solange
I’m a huge fan of Solange. Soul/R&B is where my heart is, and she is such a great artist. I love the smoothness of her voice in this song.
"Rollin" - Calvin Harris
I love how the song kicks off, and I LOVE the groove to this one. It makes me feel like summer, even when it’s not! This is a song I love running outside to.
"Location" - Khalid
I LOVE Khalid’s voice. So soulful! Not sure what it is about this song, but it makes me feel nostalgic.
"Shine" - LOLO
I had never heard of LOL before hearing this song, and I really love the honesty and voice in her lyrics. This song is inspiring and emotional all at the same time.
"Back to the Bottom" - Port Cities
The harmonies in this song pull me right in! I love the catchiness of the chorus, and love the electric guitar in this track. I feel like I don’t hear enough electric guitar in songs anymore!
"Jealous" - Labrinth
Geeeeeeze. This song will always be a favourite of mine. I LOVE the vocals, I LOVE the emotion, I LOVE the hurt. It’s just so good. This song is one of those songs that will never get old for me.
"False Alarm" - Matoma, Becky Hill
Her voice is killer. I love the raspiness in it, and it’s also so powerful. This is a song I want to dance to. Great beat and clever lyrics.
"Send My Love" - Adele
Obviously I’m not the only one who is a huge fan of this girl. This is my favourite song of hers. Acoustic guitar always pulls me in when I listen to music, and I love the vibe of it in this track.
