Word-of-mouth has been Maggie Walters’ best friend since she settled in Austin, Texas a few years ago with little more than a guitar and an acoustic demo she’d recorded in the bathroom of a dilapidated Chicago apartment. Elegant and challenging, the arrival of her self-titled debut was met with a four-star Austin American-Statesman review, KGSR radioplay, and a sold-out CD release at the Cactus Café, making her someone Austin talked about. Now she’s delivering on that promise by unleashing Midwestern Hurricane. An album featuring some of Austin’s best-known musicians (as Texas Music Magazine suggested, “genuine talent seeks its own level,”) Midwestern Hurricane was produced by The Butthole Surfers’ Paul Leary (Sublime, Meat Puppets) and mixed by James Vollentine (Spoon, Patty Griffin). The new album also features appearances from legendary Faces alumni Ian MacLagan, Lyle Lovett cellist John Hagen, and Texas troubadour Ray Wylie Hubbard. Walters’ songs have garnered national attention and have been played on Austin’s KGSR, KUT and stations with similar programming throughout the country. Walters was recently chosen as one of Music Connection Magazine’s Top 100 Artists of 2007, has been featured on The Bob Edwards Show, XM Radio’s Radar Report, Mix Magazine, KUT’s inaugural podcast, was and editor’s pick on Download.com and an Artist Direct finalist for The Ultimate Band Competition.
