Hidden Gem: Maggie Szabo "Tidal Waves and Hurricanes"

Take thumping drums, a voice rich in soul and toss in a scorned woman and you have the Tidal Waves & Hurricanes video. I feel bad for the guy, not sure what he did but he did something wrong. And boy is he paying a hefty price. Glad it's not me and I can pantslessly enjoy this video as part of Maggie's monumental journey.

There's a story here...a journey as epic as Lord of the Rings. How a talented and charming lass from Dundas, Ontario works her way to LA and gets her video shown on Ryan Seacrest's network. Granted via the NewMusic Ten interview I got a snapshot of that story but there's more going on. This just doesn't happen overnight. Does it?
