Maggie Wing has been singing, playing, and writing songs since she was a kid growing up in Northern New Mexico. After moving to the San Francisco Bay Area and taking a multi-decade detour into software engineering, she reconnected with her songwriting self and hasn’t looked back. Her debut album, Pictures of Birds (2016), garnered critical praise for its memorable stories and thoughtfully crafted lyrics. While she doesn’t write autobiographical songs, “each one comes from a feeling or an experience that I’ve had in my life,” she says. “I just hand the story over to a narrator who’s a lot braver — or a lot less lucky — than I’ve been.”
Her new album, Burn This Note, was released in August 2023.
