WCP's "Best Singer" of 2014 & one of NPR's "Favorite Discoveries from the 2013 CMJ Music Festival." Songwriter, vocalist and live-looper, Margot MacDonald embodies a one-woman band.


Included in NPR’s Favorite Discoveries from the 2013 CMJ Music Festival; songwriter, vocalist and live looper, Margot MacDonald embodies a one-woman band. A long time guitarist and pianist, Margot’s instrumentation has expanded to include unconventional vocal accompaniments created live thru the use of a loop pedal. Haunting, powerful and indie-pop driven, Margot’s performances make you forget the technology she hones, as you lose yourself in layers of lush vocals and striking melodies.

Margot is Washington City Paper's "Best Singer" of 2014, a three-time winner of the Washington Area Music Association 'Artist of the Year' award, an Artist-in-Residence alumna at the Music Center at Strathmore, and has been featured on NPR, Voice of America and TEDx. Now 23, her latest album, Canvas, is quickly gaining critical acclaim.
