In her time in the music industry Maggie Collins has accrued a wealth of experience that has seen her build a successful career as a national broadcaster and artist manager.

Current manager of Brisbane bands The John Steel Singers and DZ, she has helped to build them a strong profile in the domestic market.

From being accepted into the JB Seed Arts Management program in 2008 she has now helped her bands reach overseas sectors and by the end of 2011, she will have brought these bands to the UK for The Great Escape festival, and to the USA for CMJ and SXSW festivals. In 2010 she launched the management label Golden District under which many bands are now represented.

Starting out as a presenter on Community Broadcaster 4ZzZ, she was Music Director for just over a year before transitioning to triple j where she is now a casual presenter.
