27 Jun 2019
Australian-born, LA-based songwriter, producer, vocalist and multi-media artist George Maple is more than a pop star with a vision; she is a force.

George Maple reveals how ‘Magic Woman’ was born: “At an immediate and visceral level, this song was born from the co-dependency of love, sadness and rage. A few years ago now, towards the end of a dying relationship, the person I loved expressed his disappointment with “the person I had become” and the anger and negativity I was expressing on a daily basis. The anger, the fire, the passion, the drive...I was suppressing rather than embracing as it did not fit with who I was expected to be and the role I was expected to play. When I look back I was deepening, finding my voice, making mistakes, failing and getting back up again, struggling and slowly touching on the truth I had been hiding from. This single conversation was the birth of Magic Woman.”
