En 2008, Margeaux propose un premier album Love for Sale, qui revisite les grands classiques de jazz et nous offre deux belles compositions personnelles, intimes et sensuelles. En 2012, elle sort un nouvel album Rain où on découvre notamment ses propres compositions, ainsi qu’une magnifique reprise de « The song of old lovers » de Brel. Elle fait appel au pianiste Olivier Hutman pour la direction artistique, les arrangements et de la réalisation de cet album.

Depuis 2012, Margeaux fait le tour d’Europe avec The 100 Voices of Gospel/Gospel pour 100 Voix et les Golden Voices of Gospel (basé en Allemagne).   Elle donne aussi des concerts et des ateliers pédagogiques pour enfants avec des thèmes comme Hommage à Michael Jackson et Hommage à la Pop.
