Margaret Maria

Her latest endeavor, Rage Angel, is an upcoming album scheduled for release in early 2024. Teaming up with Craig Robert McConnell, Margaret is the co-creator of this electrifying band. While she specializes in composing and performing the cello, Craig handles the electronics and composition. Rage Angel offers high-energy, intense, and cutting-edge music tailored for film and TV licensing, promising a unique auditory experience.

She is also set to unveil Goddess of Edges, another new album slated for release on December 2nd at a live-streamed event in Toronto. This project is a representation of Margaret in her full glory. She single-handedly composes, produces, and plays all parts, creating a live orchestra at her fingertips.

Margaret is also set to release a new music video, "Her Heart on a Platter", on the same day as Goddess of Edges, on December 2nd.

 Margaret has yet another project on the horizon. Uncountable Spheres is a new spontaneous music album featuring her duo 'Marbyllia,' where she collaborates with pianist Bill Gilliam. This album, like the others, will be unveiled on December 2nd. Margaret doesn't perform live frequently these days, but when she does, it's exclusively in this rare format, making it a must-see experience. Her background includes playing in prestigious orchestras like the Vancouver Symphony and the National Arts Centre Orchestra, making her transition to composition even more fascinating.

Margaret Maria's creative vision extends beyond her albums. Music Can Change the World is an initiative to record a song by artists worldwide, starting with soul reggae singer Tréson and OrKidstra, a not-for-profit organization Margaret collaborates within Ottawa. The project aims to address the current global challenges, spreading hope and joy through music, functioning as an Anthem

A graduate of The Curtis Institute of Music, Margaret's transition from a performance career to a prolific composer has been nothing short of impressive. Her work has been described by colleagues as "an unstoppable force of nature" that seamlessly unifies the technical and subconscious realms.

With a distinguished career, Margaret Maria has already released 14 studio albums and co-created inspiring projects such as Rage Angel (Toronto) and Cinematic Steampunk (Los Angeles). She has also teamed up with the Spanish surrealist painter Ángel Muriel to create "Art in Divine Harmony" videos. Her spontaneous improvised creations with pianist Bill Gilliam in 'Marbyllia' demonstrate her boundless artistic versatility.
