Interview with Maggie Reilly, 5 December 2013
(The full version of this interview will be broadcast as a Songwriters Special, Sunday 15 December at 21:00 GMT)
MAGGIE REILLY: Bush Hall, London – Monday 16 December
WIN TICKETS & ALBUMS!
Following the release of her new album ‘Heaven Sent’, Maggie Reilly has announced she is to play her first ever London date as a solo artist at Bush Hall on Monday, 16th December, 2013.
As one of Scotland’s most respected artists, Maggie launched her solo career in 1988 but, as she explains, has never quite made it to London, “I’ve been lucky enough to enjoy great success across mainland Europe, so I’m forever on tour in other countries. There was a sense of relief when the Bush Hall date in London was confirmed at the last minute – it’s taken me twenty-five years to get there!”
Maggie first made a name for herself fronting the Scottish blue-eyed soul outfit Cado Belle, releasing their self-titled cult-classic album in 1976. However, Maggie is best known for her singing and writing collaborations with the composer and instrumentalist Mike Oldfield, for whom she sang the vocals on the 1983 international hits singles ‘Moonlight Shadow’, ‘To France’ and the Hall & Oates hit ‘Family Man’, for the writing of which Maggie received an ASCAP award in 1984.
GRTR! Managing Editor David Randall has been an advocate of Maggie and her music for many years. “We first chatted back in 2009 and have always featured her prominently in our singer songwriter radio sequence.” David lists her latest album ‘Heaven Sent’ in his ‘Best Of 2013′ selection.
