Fiona's sister
January 22, 2006 12:20 AM   Subscribe

Maude Maggart-- Fiona Apple's sister-- does cabaret. She doesn't sound anything like her though, her voice is more soprano than alto.

And their dad, Brandon Maggart, seems to be putting up a website of his own. The "about" section has more info on Maude and all the the other Maggartlings. (For those who don't recall, or never knew ... Brandon was in a pioneering and hilarious made-for-cable show called "Brothers" back in '84.

Not to detrack from the OP ... but I have a soft spot for the Maggart clan (Fiona inexplicably performs quite often here in Lincoln, NE) and I just wanted to give'em a plug.

Ack! My post got munged. Was going on to say that Brandon was on "Brothers".

I have a warm spot for the Maggart clan (Fiona inexplicably performs here in Lincoln quite often) and wanted to toss in a plug.

Why is it that Fiona Apple (and now her family) is such a frequent subject for posts on MetaFilter? (I don't mean that in a 'Your favourite band sucks' way, it just seems odd that she crops up so often...)

Whatever, this lady has a nice voice.

Yeardley Smith, the voice of Lisa Simpson, was on Brothers. Not that that is related in any way to this thread.

As an ancient f*rt, I wouldn't know Fiona Apple from a Fiona PC. But thanks RD, for reminding me of Brothers.

Speaking of Yeardly Smith, I remember an eppisode of "Hermans' Head" where yeardly's character asked someone "You don't think I sound like Lisa Simpson, do you?"

Her half-brother was the sidekick in The Sentinel. Now that we've got the family tree covered, we can all move on.

My wife was obsessed with "The Sentinal". There's plenty of slash written about the Garrett Maggart and Richard Burgi characters.

Oh my. I was just about to post the opposite.

After listening to some of the tracks I thought she does sound a lot like Fiona. Yes, Maude has a higher range but the timbre of their voices are very similar.

Fiona also does some jazzy cabaret numbers when playing live, there are some fabulous bootlegs from club largo floating around the net.
God only knows why Sony haven't released them all as a DVD.
