Maggie Walters writes songs and sings them, but isn't your average singer-songwriter. Not even close. For starters, The Butthole Surfers’ Paul Leary (Sublime, Meat Puppets) doesn't produce records for the average singer-songwriter. Leary has produced Walters' forthcoming, and as-yet-untitled album- an eclectic set of songs featuring Austin’s best-known musicians (as Texas Music Magazine suggested in a Walters' review, “genuine talent seeks its own level.”) On the album, you'll find appearances from JJ Johnson (John Mayer), David Garza, George Reiff (Court Yard Hounds) and Bukka Allen (BoDeans). The set's first single, “No Sex,” features an appearance from one of SXSW 2010's best-received international discoveries-The Faroe Island's Guðrið Hansdóttir. Their collaboration is smart and sultry, but also more than a little quirky and surprising. It's an anthemic introduction to an album flush with compelling songs that ought to send listeners to the thesaurus looking for new adjectives to describe what they've heard- and you can bet "average" isn't going to be one of em'. Four years ago, Walters met Paul Leary at a SXSW showcase. The pair quickly agreed to work together and have made two albums together- 2008's Midwestern Hurricane and the forthcoming follow-up. Midwestern Hurricane, which featured cameos from Ray Wylie Hubbard and Ian McLagan, earned Walters some of the best reviews of her career and earned her television placements within programs on NBC, CNBC and in AMC Movie theatres nationwide. In Austin, Walters’ songs have been featured regularly on both KGSR and KUT and she has been featured nationally on The Bob Edwards Show and XM Radio’s Radar Report. Walters' new record will be in-stores later in 2011. An Austin record-release party and national tour will follow. For more information, interview requests, or press materials: info@maggiewalters.com
