Maggie Louie (November 10, 1970) is an American songwriter, guitarist and singer, best known for the pop single "Always Be Your Girl" featured on her solo album, Maggie Louie, released in 1999[1] and as the lead singer of the underground cult band Buttermilk which recorded four albums including Star Spangled Bubblegum (1993)[2] and On Tap (1995). Louie's vocal talents have been described as providing a "fiery emotive delivery"[3] for Buttermilk's "blues rock, jazz, funk, folk and H.O.R.D.E.-style groovy jams."[4]

In 1998, Louie's life story was optioned as a feature film titled Sincerely Maggie but the movie was never produced.[5]

Louie's song, "Junky Rhapsody" was featured on Grammy nominee Stanley C. Adkins' 2001 album The Undesirables which was produced by Alex Chilton in New Orleans, LA. Also in 2001, Louie played herself as the lead singer of a bar band in one scene of the TV-Movie, A Passion.
