Emrose/Stroudavarious/Nine North’s Margaret Durante played the WPOC Charm City Country Showcase at Hightopps Backstage Grill in Baltimore last night while promoting her single “Mississippi’s Crying.”
Durante, now 22 years old is a native of Potomac, Maryland. Some of her influences include Mary Chapin Carpenter and Bonnie Raitt whose voices gave her a love of “soulful, story-telling music.”
Durante has been writing with such Nashville songwriters as Stephony Smith, Shelly Fairchild and Lisa Carver. Her debut album project is scheduled for release in early 2011.
