This post is way overdue. This young lady has been on my radar for the longest while.
Margot B was brought to my attention a while back, but I never got around to having her grace these pages – until now. Her live album Live At Hazlett Theater was simply too short for me. It was a mixed bag of aggressive hip hop vibes, soft and breezy jazz and a shot of pop as well. Margot managed to bring together many genres with a fantastic balance. Her deep and sultry voice is so inviting on “Cool,” Aftermath” (which is my favourite track on the album) features a great push and pull with DJ Theory and her cover of The Script’s “Breakeven” is absolutely delicious. I just needed a few more tracks to round it off, simply because I didn’t want it to end so quickly.
Apart from the musical tip, Margot B is also making plenty of noise on the acting scene. She is the lead actress in the revival of Broadway’s RENT, starring in the hit web series In Between Men and landed a role as Daughter Maitland on HBO’s addictive gangster series Boardwalk Empire. Margot also has 2 songs featured on the Boardwalk Empire Season 4 soundtrack. Busy, busy lady indeed. Ms.B is not a stranger to the big stage, as she graced stages with the likes of Snarky Puppy, Michael League and Jason Mraz (I love me some him!). Take a look at Margot B’s performance and interview at the Google Headquarters in NYC:
