Maggi, Pierce & E.J.

Hugely eclectic folk-rockers Maggi, Pierce & E.J. built a strong grassroots following through near-constant touring in the late '90s, even though their records were entirely self-released. Ranging from coffeehouse folk to rootsy rock & roll, country, jazz, pop, and the geeky, herky-jerky wing of alternative rock, MPE tied its freewheeling music together with smooth three-part harmonies and energetic concert performances in which all three members switched instruments at a dizzying pace. The group formed in Philadelphia, where Pierce and E.J. had been involved in the interracial hip-hop outfit the Goats; despite some early critical praise, the group imploded after two albums. In the meantime, Pierce and E.J. had struck up a friendship with singer Maggi, a regular presence on the local coffeehouse circuit. The three began writing songs together and gathered a local following, and released a self-titled independent album in 1995. Their next two releases, arriving in 1997 and 1998, kept the same title and cover design (childlike drawings of all three members), but changed the color of the artwork; as a result, they were dubbed The White Album, The Black Album, and The Red Album, respectively. Meanwhile, MPE steadily expanded their touring base, playing over 175 gigs a year at clubs, colleges, and festivals across the United States and Europe. Their fourth album, 2001's For, was a set of original material dedicated to the influence and inspiration of the late Jeff Buckley. ~ Steve Huey, Rovi

I'm generally down on Pandora, but I must compliment them on being cool enough to have MPE!

As with many bands, some of their best songs were never recorded,
such as Sadie Hawkins Day, which they ought to license to someone
it's so gd good.

These guys are party animals, good musicians, good songwriters, very creative & have been known on multiple occasions to take the concert
BEYOND, like they're Fiona Ritchie.

MPE we love you!

Whatever, I was wondering why pandora put this so called band on my country station, I think they suck, my ears may never recover. danbillion is so right worst album art ever.
I'm a big fan. And an old friend.
Glad Pandora caught on.
im reealllllly hoping danbillion is joking. cuz otherwise... wtf?
They have some of the worst album art of all time. Anyone disagree!?!? LOL!!!!
i helped bring these guys to my campus back in 97ish and after the show, we went out to eat...and i'll never forget the story about living across the street from boys2men back in philly...tot a l l y nice folk
wooooooo love em!
brittney is awful!!!!!!!
lol they're actually very nice people. i met them at a party where they were performing. my parents already had a copy of the gold album, and i bought one for myself. jaded is my absolute favorite, but flame and the coffee song are incredible work as well.
ooh, "jaded" is so pretty... better than Squirrel Nuts! Hey... i like the same music as my buddy Peter... that can't be good... kill me if i start listening to Brittany...
"Castle Walls" is magnificent. I wanna put them in my pocket, take them home, and put them in a terrarium and feed them mealworms and watch them grow.
ditto
as eclecticists , they have their better music and the music i dont like. i really enjoy most of it... except for the more country sounding songs they have. but the fact that they have such a hugely diverse genre span, then i have to give them credit, because thats one thing i truly admire in a band. great work.
I also like it a lot!
I like it!
So good.
