Maggie Trapani - 'Life of a Perpetual Quitter' (EP stream) (premiere)
The debut EP by the young singer-songwriter is mature beyond her years.
Twenty-two-year-old musician Maggie Trapani is set to release her debut EP Life of a Perpetual Quitter this week, and as you'll hear on the stream of the record below, the New Jersey native strikes a confident balance between smart pop music and confessional singer-songwriter fare. The future's bright for this young woman and although her lesson is one often espoused by artists, it's one people need to hear more, especially those who might feel trapped in whatever lives they lead.
"Life of a Perpetual Quitter is my first release and I couldn't be more excited!" Trapani tells PopMatters. "The EP is my take on what its like to be a young person today. In my experience, making choices that differ from the typical, such as leaving school to pursue music, tend to confuse people. But I just hope that people who listen to these songs will be inspired to take chances and live their lives however they please."
