Margot  About to release a pop record. But very passionate about classical music and corgis.

I always get very quiet right before playing on stage ๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ’šI always have this weird feeling that I forgot how to play the violin, it's happened ever since my first violin competition when I was 4.

Flashback to July when we opened for @katyperry in South Africa (and when we released Club Soda!) - love my pia @miamoretti more than anything, even if she tries to change our set 2 minutes before we go on stage (see photo 2) ... all photos by @timsek

Haters will say it's photoshop ... but now that I have your attention DON'T FORGET TO DOWNLOAD OUR SONG ๐ŸนClub Soda๐Ÿน on iTunes!!! (And yes our new band name is Club Soda) *link in bio*
P.S. the ๐Ÿ‘ is real

Hi! I forgot to write about so many cool things that happened this summer as I'm still learning to move through grief and trauma, and still learning to listen to my body when it tells me it's still healing, even if that sometimes means spending more days in bed than not. But today I find myself happy and in good health and wanted to let you know that @hookedondolls RELEASED OUR NEWEST SONG ๐ŸนClub Soda๐Ÿน --- you can find link in my bio or under Club Soda by the band Club Soda (we'll tell you more about our new band name later! ๐Ÿ˜) I'm so proud of this song. It's the first song I ever attempted to produce that forced me to fumble my way to learn protools, which then gave me the confidence to tear apart my solo record and produce myself (can't wait you to hear it!) ... but even more, it's all completely played live by friends over a span of so many living room recording sessions when I had no idea what I was doing. We must have recorded @spencerludwig like 5 years ago in his Brooklyn apartment with my $60 microphone.
This track taught me to love the magic in the imperfect. I was so self conscious of knowing I didn't know what I was doing that I spent the time, money and energy to re-record so much of it in a fancy studio with fancy gear - and I didn't end up using any of it. Sometimes there's magic that happens even when it's not done how you "think it should be" and I learned to embrace that.

It started as an idea 5 years ago that evolved with us as we started to explore more and more. We noticed that at every stage of its evolution, it was always a song that had people get up and dance at our shows - we hope this does that for you, we could all use a moment to get up and just dance it out. Forever thankful for my muse and life wife, @miamoretti, who pushes me harder than anyone I know to break all ideas of boundaries. There's no one I love creating with more.

Been recording for so long nearly forgot what this feels like. Can't wait to get back to it...this was a couple of summers ago @nationalsawdust
P.S. who wants to book me for tour! (About me: I'm very good at selecting the best kinds of chips at the gas station)

Too many Manhattans.

Re-recorded my whole record this summer. Produced it myself. Got my friends to play on it. Two more weeks before I hand it in for mixing. I can actually say I'm finally ready to release it.

Waking up to love notes.

@hookedondolls have a very big surprise for y'all this weekend!

Still no furniture and no AC in my apartment but maybe that just means we need to have a dance party. (@miamoretti falling asleep on me from the heat wave)

Been plotting my music videos with @globaliza along with my record release - I'm just as shocked as you are that it's actually happening...swipe to see me probably thinking about corgis.

Feeling a lot of things. Feeling like surely it's only the summer of 2017 and I didn't just miss an entire year in New York City. Feeling like shoot I forgot to call my mom- but remembering she isn't just a phone call away anymore, so I find myself talking out loud to her alone in my apartment... I remember putting this record on nearly every day. I remember falling in love to this record. I remember it was the last record I played in my East Village apartment last summer, lying on the floor crying when I knew something was wrong with my mom. So here I am, lying on the ground in my new Brooklyn apartment pretending like I'm picking up where I left off last year. Thinking about how much my mom would love my new home and that it might even be the first place she wouldn't ask "are you sure just don't want to move back home? I won't even charge you rent if you make me all your delicious dinners!" And then she'd scrub the windows and floors and tell me to stop making piles of knick knacks on my window sills. My new home has a lot of window sills and it's so tempting!...sorry, mom! Anyways, now that I have my feet back on the ground, get ready for lots of classical music sharing and lots of margot music releases ๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ’›
