Maggie Teachout released her debut album Maybe I’m Still Just Peter, at age 18. Maggie plays guitar and fiddle; she composed and arranged all of the tracks. She sings from deep in her soul, she rises up from a heartbreakingly paper-thin whisper to the roar of a lion. She makes it matter. Maggie grew up in the American Old-Time music tradition in Olympia, Washington, but with Peter, she ventures out into the world of indie rock. The album reflects, and expands on, her experience being brought up in a traditional music community. By exploring what it means to be both a woman and a young artist, Maggie takes the listener on a journey of both contemplation and expression. With emotional tracks about self-discovery and heartache like “Fire at the Hem”, songs full of warmth and gratitude like “Cosmos” and “Odysseus” this album is a celebration of artistic independence, a young woman coming into her own musical identity. Maggie has played music since she was 4-years-old; she has written and composed music since she was 13. She is known in Olympia music circles for her powerful voice and moving lyrics. For her, music is not just a way to connect with others, it is an outlet where she can advocate for issues that are meaningful to her. Maggie has a passion for social justice, and this can be reflected in several of her songs , including “Waltz for my Daughter,” which features both Maggie and her younger sister, Ruby Neatherlin (of The Sassafras Sisters). Maybe I’m Still Just Peter demonstrates Maggie’s versatility as a musician with echoes of her traditional music background giving way to newfound channels for her eclectic songwriting and powerful voice. It is an impressive debut.
