"Margot Wagner is quite possibly the most overall gifted artist I've encountered" says Barking Dog Records co-owner Linda Coates of Margot Wagner, who has released two CDs of originals - Open Blue Sky and Firefly.

"She has an amazing command of both guitar and piano which perfectly underscore her soaring, yet delicate vocals. Margot's songwriting reveals a depth of insight and experience as well as mature artistry in crafting both music and lyrics."

Margot brings a unique world view to her songwriting from her time spent living and studying in France to her years as a dancer and actress -- then she brings those experiences to life with deft compositional style and a clear, confident, shimmering voice. Her songs are articulate, mature, and offer a youthful sophistication which spans folk and pop genres.

A brilliant student, Margot was set to enter Macalester College on a full ride scholarship when the opportunity to pursue a music career full time presented itself. After touring for a few months, experiencing enthusiastic audience response to her incandescent performing style and finding herself compelled to write more and more songs, Margot decided to put school on hold and record her second CD, which was released in March 2002.

The songs on Open Blue Sky and Firefly range from stripped-down reflective and intimate songs ("The Birds in Paris," "Mourning Dove," "As In Autumn," "Poetry On Newspapers") to well-crafted full band songs ("Cup of Kindness," "Hong Kong," "Thin Ice," "Cinnamon & Sugar," "7:53," "Some Words" ).
