The former White Stripes frontman Jack White has called upon our very own pedal steel playing, Danish singer/songwriter Maggie Bjorklund to join him on his first-ever solo headlining tour. The backing spot has thus far brought her in front of sold-out audiences in Nashville and Chattanooga, and onto the stage of Saturday Night Live. Watch the SNL performance of “Love Interruption” here: 


A listing of the tour dates can be found HERE (with more to be added soon).

To celebrate the announcement, we are launching a second free MP3 from Maggie’s recently released Bloodshot Records debut, Coming Home. “The Anchor Song” features an all-star cast of guest contributors including vocalist Rachel Flotard, Joey Burns and John Convertino of Calexico, Barrett Martin of Screaming Trees, and others. You can download, re-post, and share the FREE track from the following link:

Maggie will be joining Jack White on the road on selected dates throughout the spring and summer promoting his new record Blunderbluss, out in April via Third Man Records. In between she will also be headlining two shows in the Netherlands, supporting Laura Gibson in Belgium, and performing atBloodshot’s official showcase at Red Eyed Fly on Saturday, 3/17 during Austin’s SXSW festival.

Following these live dates, Maggie will be returning to the studio in the US to record the follow-up album to Coming Home.

Further bio, tour, and contact information can be found below. 


Early in her career, Maggie was best known in Europe as a guitarist for The Darleens and influential group Miss B Haven. After the breakup of Miss B Haven, Maggie discovered the pedal steel and soon made trails to Nashville, where she studied with pedal steel legend, Jeff Newman, and quickly found herself immersed in the Seattle music scene lending her talents to Christy McWilson, Mark Pickerel (Screaming Trees), Giant Sand and John Doe.

After spending years perfecting her skills on the pedal steel as a supporting player, in 2011 Maggie released her beautiful solo debut Coming Home through Bloodshot Records, an album featuring Calexico (Joey Burns and John Convertino), Mark Lanegan, Jon Auer and Rachel Flotard. 

“Bjorklund’s playing and songwriting conjure up romanticized roadhouses and late-afternoon sunlight filtered through whiskey, smoke and windows coated with decades’ worth of dust. It’s enough to make you want to jump ship and join her in whatever voyage she’s on.” – NPR
