Singer-songwriter Maggie Rose paid tribute to Phish and Curtis Mayfield on the latest installment of the Past, Present, Future, Live! podcast. Also included in her segment-closing performance was a rendition of her recently-released single “Help Myself”.
Past, Present, Future, Live! was launched by Osiris Media last month and provides an innovative concept to the world of podcasting. Osiris Media CEO RJ Bee examines artists’ roots in music, what they are up to now, and where they hope to take their career, all capped off with an in-studio performance.
In Rose’s episode of the podcast, she takes viewers on a guided journey of her burgeoning career in music. Starting with her earliest musical memory of performing for her family at home, Rose goes through the influences that made her including Alanis Morissette, Joan Osborne, and other “gutsy women who weren’t afraid to write a song honestly,” as she puts it.
The two then move onto Rose’s current situation and her move from Maryland to Nashville. She discusses the way that this change of scenery informed the music that would eventually become her 2018 album, Change The Whole Thing. Lastly, the two arrive at Rose’s future and the promising opportunities on the horizon. Rose reveals that she is working on a project with bluesman Marcus King, as well as recorded some songs of her own at the legendary FAME Studios in Muscle Shoals, AL.
The podcast then turns to the live performance aspect, where Rose kicks off the session with her own “Help Myself”, which was released as a single last month. Then comes a curveball as Rose performs a somber rendition of “Shade” from Phish’s latest album Sigma Oasis. The solo piano and delicate nature of Rose’s cover encapsulated the touching nature of the song to a whole new degree. Finally, Rose closes the “live” segment of Past, Present, Future, Live! with a take on Curtis Mayfield’s “People Get Ready”.
