Her Artist statement:
"I came to name my music style, "Organica" "Organica", is my sound and my genre. It is based on living in the moment on stage. Allowing the music and improvisation to be a living breathing organism that is ever changing throughout the performance with reciprocity from the audience. I literally saw its birth one night on stage while performing one of my compositions with one of the many incarnations of Jazz bands I had assembled. I created my sound which is an unorthodox hybrid of adult Pop music that is deeply rooted in Jazz, thick RnB grooves,
ambient guitars and keys with lush vocal arrangements. It is all
created by humans not machines.... I want to sound like me, the artist, not like the software with which it was recorded."
Thanks so much for listening to my music that I call Organica™. Organica is a ferociously nuanced hybrid of Alternative Pop that is deeply rooted in lush vocals, ambient guitars, with thick, dynamic grooves all created by humans not machines. Yummy!
I wanted something ‘lo-fi’ as opposed to the cloned sounds of today’s pop culture environment. I needed my music to sound like me rather than the equipment it was recorded on. Plus, I feel a huge affinity — love affair even — for the singer/songwriter era of the seventies and eighties. Habit is a collection of songs with a penetrating pulse that defines my human condition of late. Put together the myriad of contrasting emotions of my past two years in a set list, and you have Habit.
As for the title and the title song, everyone’s got a Habit (or two). Be it positive or negative, a habit can be the ultimate distraction, what slowly kills you, or what sets you free. So, choose your Habit wisely. I hope you start with mine. Margo Rey

Music has always been my clearest form of expression. I believe it is one of the most beautiful ways humanity can truly communicate – its vibration is universal and transcends boundaries, languages and cultures. It’s my great fortune to be signed with a phenomenal record label, Organica Music Group/Universal, which has allowed me to share the experience of my music and passion with you. Thanks to all who share in my groove.
