Biography

From the pageant stage to the soundstage, to center stage with a Grammy-nominated artist, triple-threat Margot B. makes a habit of working hard and moving forward. The Pittsburgh native began her career in front of the cameras at the age of nine, modeling for local and national talent agencies. It's been a steady, accomplished rise ever since. At 13, she wrote a tribute to the late Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. called In My Dreams, which continues to be featured at MLK events nationwide. While her friends planned 'Sweet Sixteen' parties, Margot was winning the National Miss Black Teen title and spending the year visiting Veterans Hospitals, performing at charity fundraisers, and volunteering for Make-A-Wish and Children's Hospital.

2005 saw two major milestones: her first full-length CD Unframed was released to a sold-out crowd at the Hard Rock Cafe, and she was a main force behind Pittsburgh's Katrina Relief Benefit Concert (both planning and performing) at Mellon Arena. The city-wide event featured 10 acts, garnered major media attention, and raised $185,000 for the American Red Cross.

The Creative and Performing Arts High School student went on to perform the title role in AIDA during her senior year, and appeared in commercials for GNC, Dad's Dog Food, and the Black Family Channel. Margot continued her training through the Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre and Civic Light Opera, studied with vocal coach Claudia Benack, at Carnegie Mellon University, and completed Dance/Musical Theatre classes in the nationally-ranked dance program at Point Park University. While sharing the stage with Black Eyed Peas, Kelly Clarkson, Nelly Furtado, and Lupe Fiasco, Margot released Inspired –an EP featuring covers of songs by five African-American artists who truly inspired her to live her own dream. Margot also performed the National Anthem for countless national sporting events and charity fundraisers, and lent her talents to many regional entertainment acts. Her relentless desire to give back found her touring with Armed Forces Entertainment, performing for troops stationed in Cuba.

2009 kicked off with Margot being named Best Female Vocalist at the Pittsburgh Hip Hop Awards, and hitting the recording studio to finish her second full-length CD Two Thousand Mine. The summer release coincided with her joining Jason Mrazon select tour dates. Margot performed the duet Lucky with Jason in venues such as Nikon at Jones Beach in New York, Minneapolis' Xcel Energy Center (on her 21st birthday), and in her hometown.
The 22-year old just wrapped filming of a video for the Oxygen TV Network, where she will be a “Featured Artist of the Month”, is showcased in a national Hoover Vacuum commercial currently airing, recorded her latest CD before an intimate studio audience at the New HazlettTheater in August 2010, and has started work on a European roll-out of her pop-inspired music.

Based out of New York City, Margot continues to write, take meetings with major labels, audition for roles, and wait or her moment. It wasn't the shelved Janet Jackson-backed "triple-threat" MTV reality show project, for which she beat out thousands of others for one of 10 spots. A nine-time call back finalist for Broadway's 'Spring Awakening', she knows her big break could be right around the corner...it's just a matter of keeping at it, staying focused, and working hard. Nobody does that better than Margot B! Also look for Margot inthe upcoming feature films "˜Love and Other Drug" (Jake Gyllenhaal/Anne Hathaway) and “Fugly” (John Leguziamo/Rosie Perez); the made-for-TV movie "My Destiny", and in what popular blog welovesoaps.com calls a highly anticipated entry into the growing world of web series and indie soaps, “In Between Men”.

Lyrics

Candy

Written By: Margot B.

You taste like candy, I want your candy
Now I know I try to fight it, got my cravings that invite it
You taste like candy, I want your candy
But I'm scared to take a bite cuz I know that I'll like
..know I'll like it

You got that tasty taste that's bitter sweet, got my tongue swirvin around
Must not be good for me your extra sweet, got that sugar drippin down
But it's your taste that got me high and now I'm searching through the town
And it's your flavor got me choosin maybe I will stick around

Fah-la-la-la-la
Must be a dream, nothings that good inside
Fah-la-la-la-la
Don't wake me, don't want this to be a lie
Boy your so sweet, most girls don't like the good guys but you've caught my eye
Especially when you be tastin like c-a-n-d-y

You taste like candy, I want your candy
Now I know I try to fight it, got my cravings that invite it
You taste like candy, I want your candy
But I'm scared to take a bite cuz I know that I'll like
..know I'll like it

What makes you different from the other boys?
Keep your wrappers on the low
Don't think you'll fool me with your sugar coated business I don't know
And if you think that I'm nieve, too blind to see
Unwrap your eyes so you don't miss me when I pack up to leave

Fah-la-la-la-la
Must be a dream, nothings that good inside
Fah-la-la-la-la
Don't wake me, don't want this to be a lie
Boy your so sweet, most girls don't like the good guys but you've caught my eye
Especially when you be tastin like c-a-n-d-y

You taste like candy, I want your candy
Now I know I try to fight it, got my cravings that invite it
You taste like candy, I want your candy
But I'm scared to take a bite cuz I know that I'll like
..know I'll like it

Can I get a little piece of you
Give me, something stronger than just a taste
And if I get a little piece of you
Make sure you don't let my beating heart go to waste

You taste like candy, I want your candy
Now I know I try to fight it, got my cravings that invite it
You taste like candy, I want your candy
But I'm scared to take a bite cuz I know that I'll like
..know I'll like it

Timeless

Written By: Margot B.

Can we talk?
It's getting late, slow your pace, lets just walk
I know a quiet place to go, we can settle up and flow ain't nobody gotta know where tonight is going to lead
Secrets spoken
From my mouth to your lips keep you open
Cuz the clock is tickin fast, take a sip out of my glass
I got the potion that'll make this moment last, last

Timeless
Leave reality behind
Make this love transcend time
Tonight, tonight
Timeless
We can make this world stand still
Your body tells me how you feel
Tonight, tonight

No clocks, no phones
Turn the lights off, common take me on your planet so high
No tv and no radio
I just want you to feel deep inside
Come on through, follow you, be my guide
Let me lead you to a place that's brand new
Let me fall into your mind slowly trickle down your spin

Timeless
Leave reality behind
Make this love transcend time
Tonight, tonight
Timeless
We can make this world stand still
Your body tells me how you feel
Tonight, tonight

We can journey to distant lands
Places that we've never been
Through the desert into the sea

Just a little touch, not too much, not to dis ya
We don't need to go hard for you to say oh G-d

Be Your Lady

Written By: Margot B.

I feel like I've been here before
Put a lock on the door and I swear I thought I threw away the key
But now my lock is gone, my wall is coming down and all I got left standing there is me
You walked away, pulled me to stay
When I saw you with her tore my heart into pieces
And for reason baby my love for you increases

No sunny skies today got me thinking it'll rain
And your face just doesn't look the same
Your beautiful can't let you go and I'm going crazy
No sunny skies today got me thinking it'll rain
And your face just doesn't look the same
Your beautiful can't let you go and I'm going crazy, got me prayin

Can't get you outta my, you got me prayin....

Things we have had passed away
You got me thinking of your kiss so I reminisce
About the times we touched, I miss your lips so much
You got my body heatin, heart is beatin for your love
And ain't no other man do like you can, your like a drug
Eternity ain't long for me when it's the two of us
So don't you walk away, don't leave your lady

No sunny skies today got me thinking it'll rain
And your face just doesn't look the same
Your beautiful can't let you go and I'm going crazy
No sunny skies today got me thinking it'll rain
And your face just doesn't look the same
Your beautiful can't let you go and I'm going crazy, got me prayin

Listen baby, I know it's been a long time since we've been together but I've been thinking
I mean, I know we were meant to be
I just feel some kind of connection, you know?
It's hard to think of you not with me

No sunny skies today got me thinking it'll rain
And your face just doesn't look the same
Your beautiful can't let you go and I'm going crazy
Got me prayin I could be your lady

Got a feeling that you'll keep me safe from harm

Cool

Written By: Margot B.

So hot laying your body down at night 
When I left you I wasn't looking
The way your eyes kept looking down at mine
My body would smoke start blazing
Now I can't get you out of my head
At hello you had me smitten
So it's important for you to know, you keep me cool

I don't wanna be lonely
I don't wanna be left behind
I don't wanna come back home all alone in the middle of a summer night
I don't wanna be left out
I don't wanna be all alone
I don't wanna come back home to a note and it reads that you've packed and gone

You keep me cool
No matter how hot I get when I look at you you keep me cool
You keep me cool
And when my mind keeps pulling me back to you you keep me cool

No goodbye but baby don't you lie
I loved you from our first kiss
Never wanted anything to last more than a moment like this
Now I can't get you out of my head
At hello you had me smitten
So its important for you to know you keep me cool

When things go wrong I sing this song
Everything you do means the world to me
You brighten up my day with the words you say
Those rainy clouds are gonna move away
You make it cooler than a winters day
And when its sunny you bring all the clouds back to play
But when it rains boy you know I'm not shivering
Though I like it cold you warm my heart up again
Not many boys can go back and forth with a style
Of staying cool but still knowing how to keep it wild
The way grinnin got me really feelin what you do
Cuz when my heart beats boy you always keep it cool

Aftermath

Written By: Margot B.

Took another shot
Drink a couple more
What does it matter to you
I cried for a bit
Made friends with my floor
Don't know what you put me through
You throwin me around 
I don't feel like me
Baby I'm spent
I need sum coffee
Ciggie ciggie plz, Swig of jimmy b
Goin crazy crazy 

Feelin like my head spin
This no mornin after
What was last night supposed to be
You ain't got no answers
This is a disaster
Just the aftermath of you and me

Walked into a dive
Just to get sum looks
You always called me naive
Saw a sleezy guy
Made him buy a drink
And let him put his hands on me
Now I should've known where this was goin
But somethin inside was wantin more and
The monster you made just keeps on growin
And now I'm goin crazy crazy

Feelin like my head spin
This no mornin after
What was last night supposed to be
You ain't got no answers
This is a disaster
Just the aftermath of you and me

Symptoms of Love

Written By: Margot B.

Sippin on my caffeine its my heroin
Don't know where I'm goin but dont care much where I've been
Had my share of dealing with my problems I've survived
Had some happy times but I know something bout the cry

Hey why was it you left
When u see me out you're actin like we never met
Hey I know that you're gone
I must be going crazy I still feel you at home

Lock me away, I'm crazy and hopeless
destroy the key cuz no doctor can cure this
I'm shakin by the phone, I can't stand to be alone
I'm gettin all the symptoms of love
Lock me away, I don’t know what happened
This isn't me, and I don't kno where me went
Must've gotten used to you cuz without you just won't do
I'm gettin all the symptoms of love

Drivin through my neighborhood just to kill some time
Maybe I'll speed up a bit so I-I-I can get a high
You used to b my rush, in fifth grade I had a crush
That was then and now you’re just not the same guy

Hey I don't understand 
I always did my hardest to make u feel like a man
Hey I know that you're gone
I must be going crazy I still feel you at home
Lock me away, I'm crazy and hopeless
destroy the key cuz no doctor can cure this
I'm shakin by the phone, I can't stand to be alone
I'm gettin all the symptoms of love
Lock me away, I don’t know what happened
This isn't me, and I don't kno where me went
Must've gotten used to you cuz without you just won't do
I'm gettin all the symptoms of love

Weight of the World

Written By: Margot B.

Sometimes it's too much
What I touch ain't what I feel
Sometimes there's the weight on my shoulders
Sometimes I give up
I'm changin pace to keep it real
Come and show the way, but don't lead me astray, come and lead me far away

Sittin back, tunin into the galaxy I'm 
(Tryna find a)
Message in, the sky waiting for my stars to align
(Am I supposed to)
Settle with, just making due with status quo
(Who can say)
What's relevant, there's so much out there that we don't know

Don't even know the search we make
We search our souls, to G_d we pray

Sittin back, tunin into the galaxy line
But this time around, baby I'll be fine

Sometimes it's too much
What I touch ain't what I feel
Sometimes there's the weight on my shoulders
Sometimes I give up
I'm changin pace to keep it real
Come and show the way, but don't lead me astray, if you lead me far away

(SO farrrr Awayyyy.....SO farrrrr Awaayyyyy)

Standin tall, tryna hold onto the weight of the world
(It was so much)
Easier, when my only care was being your girl
Cuz I wanna be, independent every now and then again I get out of line
(But don't you worry)
Cuz this time around, baby I'll be fine
