Maggie Koerner is an American singer/songwriter from Shreveport, LA currently living in New Orleans, LA. She is signed to Concord Records.[1]

Koerner grew up in Shreveport, LA and graduated from LSU Shreveport in 2009. While serving as a waitress in Shreveport, she uploaded performance videos to YouTube, catching the attention of producer and drummer, Brady Blade. Blade produced Koerner's first album, Quarter Life, in 2011.[2] Shortly after, David Shaw of The Revivalists saw Koerner perform in Shreveport and convinced the singer to move to New Orleans.

In New Orleans, Koerner wrote her second LP, Netural Ground, and shortly after, caught the attention of the New Orleans-based funk band, Galactic. Galactic recruited Koerner to be their lead vocalist for 2013 and 2014. She also recorded on the Galactic albums Carnivale Electricos and Into the Deep. Koerner went on to perform with other acts such as Charles Bradley, Trombone Shorty, Widespread Panic, and Gov't Mule.

She released her third solo work, Dig Down Deep, on R’COUP’D/Ninja Tune in late 2016. After a year solo touring in 2017 she signed to Concord Records in 2018 and is releasing music on the label in 2019 and 2020.
