MARGARET GLASPY: AUSTRALIAN TOUR INTERVIEW

Even before Margaret Glaspy’s highly acclaimed debut album Emotions and Math was released last year, a vibe for her music had been building for some time via her impressive indie EP releases and much-viewed YouTube clips. Between Glaspy’s emotive vocal performances, astute use of guitar dynamics and a great sense of space, the 27 year old New Yorker achieves much with the sparse instrumentation employed on her album and in her live shows. Add the perfectly constructed, grunge-tinged pop rock songs, clever lyrics, amiable disposition and it’s no wonder she’s been seen on major American TV shows and being added to some of the world’s coolest music festivals.

Margaret is currently on tour in Australia and Australian Musician editor Greg Phillips caught up with her pre-gig at Melbourne’s Northcote Social Club for a chat. Margaret discusses her album Emotions and Math, her songwriting methods and offers her thoughts on International Women’s Day (which it was on the day of the interview) and sexism in the music industry.
