One of Michigan’s international exports, Maggie Cocco returns with a preview of her first analog album, “Like A Moth,” slated for release in 2024. Through “Science for Sociopaths,” Cocco crafts evocative theatrical song cycles that delve into themes of systemic and interpersonal wounds and connection. Boasting awards including Best Music at Auckland Fringe Festival, Maggie Cocco’s Science for Sociopaths is “radiant but raw, presenting beautifully melodic odes of unvarnished truths,” says Jeff Milo of Deep Cutz.

Maggie is joined by Ann Arbor’s own Joanna Sterling. Armed with an arresting voice and a command of melody sharper than Artemis’ arrow, Sterling is captivating hearts with every midwest listening room appearance. Her songs are tales of love and loss, the insights of a practicing psychotherapist, the murmured rituals of a Tarot reader, the triumphant LGBTQ+ anthems of a trans woman emboldening marginalized voices by giving us her own. Her new album, “Queen of Wands,” is available now on all listening platforms.
