Maggy Simon presents her debut album, YESTERDAY ONCE MORE, jam-packed with all the sizzling energy of her live-performance shows.

Smooth, effortless transitions among demanding arrangements create an exciting listening experience that replicates the dynamics of on-stage entertainment, as heard in medleys such as “Here’s to Life/A Lot of Livin’ to Do/Sweet Happy Life” and songs “It’s Better with a Band” and “I Had a Ball.” Maggy’s zippy, bold and happy personality shines through each upbeat song as she sings her heart out with ardent, romantic affection. The poignant mood of “Two for the Road” and the “Here’s That Rainy Day/Come in from the Rain” medley illustrates Maggy’s dramatic range.
Yesterday Once More was carefully compiled with Maggy’s loyal social media fan base in mind. Each song was selected based on the number of “likes” from her fans on Facebook!
“I want to give my fans the gift of a live performance, in the comfort of their own homes,” Maggy says of Yesterday Once More. “It will feel like I’m right in the room with them!”
