Maggie Bjorklund is a pedal steel guitarist/singer/composer from Copenhagen, Denmark. She has made a name for herself as a stylistically unique musician, combining the tastes and techniques a wide variety of music – country, indie rock, film scores, psychedelia, pop – into a seamless blend of roots music.
Her new album Shaken was written while Bjorklund was recently tending to her mother in the hospital, just before she passed away. The album is full of potent memories and emotional outpouring, as translated into the warm but dark sonic textures. Much of the music here – whether instrumental or with vocals – flows like lucid dreams with the subtly dominant and defining touches of Bjorklund’s pedal steel melody lines at their core.
