In the Loop... with Margot MacDonald

April 26, 2017

Acclaimed loop pedal vocalist and Indie-Pop A Capella songwriter Margot MacDonald, 25, is a DC area native who grew up in Arlington, Virginia.  She has performed at several high-profile venues in the area – including: the 9:30 Club, the State Theatre, Ram’s Head Live, and New York venues like The Bitter End and Rockwood Music Hall. 

MacDonald began her professional music career at age 10 as a member of the Washington National Opera Chorus, performing in Puccini’s La Boheme, under the direction of opera great Plácido Domingo. Nearly two decades and four albums (Canvas -2013, Walls – 2009, Torn – 2007, Rising – 2004) later, MacDonald has forged a unique path for herself, which began early in the second grade. As the story goes, her teacher noticed that MacDonald took to music in an organic way, so her parents were encouraged to sign her up for music lessons. And the rest, as they say, is history.
