Musicians

Maggie, Pierce and EJ

Philadelphia based trio, Maggi, Pierce And E.J. like to get hearts soaring, lips laughing, brains racing and feet jumping. Their "down-home farm-city junk music" has awed and inspired audiences all over the U.S. and Europe, leaving them cheering for more and groping for description at the same time.
Equally at home in a pin-drop intimate cafe with acoustic guitar, mandolin and dumbek, or a rowdy, rockin´ club with screamin´ Stratocaster, slammin´ drums and thunderous bass, it´s Maggi, Pierce And E.J.´s trademark, intricate three-part harmonies that ground and unify their inspired sound.
As utterly unique and groundbreaking as MPEband´s live shows are, it´s the songs on their 6 self-titled CD´s (identified by colour) that truly drive home their undeniable talent as exceptional songwriters and musicians. Writing as a group, in pairs and individually, their songs range from acoustic lullabies to raucous party stompers, to hypnotic soulscapes.
Trying to pigeonhole a band´s sound is often difficult, but in this case, impossible. Their Chinese fire-drill instrumentation, lush harmonies, unshakable melodies and seat of the pants spontaneity, create one helluva roller coaster ride of a live show!

Maggi, Pierce And E.J., live, breathe, eat, and drink music.
They are constantly touring the U.S., U.K., and Europe along with their faithful black lab, Pokey. They play everywhere from colleges to festivals, clubs, cafes and the occasional kennel.

For the band’s sixth album, they put six songs on three separate discs grouped by texture and feel. Each texture builds as the songs move into the day. Beautiful, lush melodies pulling mandolins, pianos, cellos and violins through the Morgen (morning) songs, followed by huge harmonies and more upbeat tracks during the Mittag (Midday), and closing with some heavy, far out, feedback-fueled guitar power trio on the Nacht(Night) disc. Recorded in Berlin and mixed by Grammy winners Ben Wisch and Phil Nicolo, the new record was released September 15, 2005.
