Today we’d like to introduce you to Maggie Huang.
Maggie, can you briefly walk us through your story – how you started and how you got to where you are today.
I’ve started learning music when I was in 3rd grade. It began with piano and I eventually because curious enough to write songs and sing when I turned 15. Like any teenager, I was super emotional all the time and had way too much in my mind. I decided that writing music was a good outlet. I didn’t start posting regularly until I was 17. It might’ve been one of my greatest decisions because I’ve now built a small community of people that listen to what I have to say in these songs and relate to me.
Has it been a smooth road?
I’ve always struggled with deciding what to focus on in the future. I’m also extremely passionate about illustration and I study graphic design in college. I couldn’t see music as a realistic goal for a long time since I had always planned for art to be my main focus. Now that I’m noticing how much I enjoy music too, I tend to find myself stuck between those two things. It’s still something I’m unsure of but I hope to be able to do both in the future.
Can you give our readers some background on your music?
I’m generally known for writing “sad girl music” as people would call it. I suppose I’m glad that my songs are something people can go to when they’re feeling upset but I hope to write more happy music that can bring more positive attitudes.
How do you think the industry will change over the next decade?
I’m really unsure for the future to be quite honest but I hope to be generally successful with music. I’d love to be able to incorporate my design/art experience to my music whether it be creating music videos or merchandise.
