Maggie Andrew


Nova Scotia-based singer-songwriter Maggie Andrew draws together a melange of influences in her lavish, innovative (s)alt-pop, fusing the likes of irreverent punk, melodic rap, simmering R&B, and fang-bearing indie rock. Beyond songwriting and performing, the boundary-breaking hitmaker is a consummate 360 degree artist, acting as creative director and overseeing all aesthetic decisions for her work, including single and album art, photo shoot styling, and music video production. Andrew cut her teeth working a number of years in LA with artists and producers like Blackbear, Ash Riser (Kendrick Lamar, AB-Soul), Doc McKinney (The Weeknd, Drake), and YetiBeats (Doja Cat, SZA), and has been covered in Rolling Stone, Billboard, and AltPress. She’s amassed over 6 million streams globally and has been roundly recognized for her work, winning the SOCAN x Sirius XM Young Canadian Songwriters Award in 2021, and receiving a nomination as the African Canadian Artist of the Year ECMA (2023), and being a 2023 CBC Searchlight Top 10 Finalist.

On her latest single—the moody, rain-soaked “Come Clean”— Maggie Andrew bares her teeth again to send a vicious missive to someone she thought was a friend. Over brooding, loud-quiet-loud guitar (courtesy of Carleton Stone) and skittering hi-hats, the Nova Scotia-based songwriter insists that she’s not sad—she’s fucking mad.

“I wanna feel the thunder, I’m gonna drag you under, I wanna scream,” Andrew sings over heavy distortion. “I’m coming clean.”

Andrew’s dark dreams of grungy, cinematic alt-rock come true with the masterful Corey Lerue (producing, mixing, and mastering) behind the boards, making sure the medium matches the message.

Co-written with Rachel Kanner and Sam Balcom, “Come Clean” is just the latest in a series of electrifying singles Andrew has unleashed this year, including the hot mess pop-punk banger “Better Than You” and the world-conquering, feeling-myself anthem “Biting Ice Cream.”

“Come Clean” finds Maggie Andrew ready for a new season, slipping into the trappings of 2023’s feral girl fall.
