Madison Malone is stepping out of her artistic shell to release songs that use the light to recognize the dark. Her new music is the beauty created beneath the destruction.
Raised in a small town in south-central Wisconsin, Madison was an anomaly in her little city. She started sneaking into rural dive bars at the age of 15 to play cover music for patrons until 2 am, paid only in pizza and tips. She spent the next seven years building a following in the Midwest, gigging in restaurants, around the University of Wisconsin-Madison campus, clubs, bars, banquet halls, four to six times a week just to pay the bills and get her voice heard.
After seven years of performing other people's music, Madison felt inclined to evolve and write about her own troubadour experiences. To pursue this neon journey of self-discovery, Madison moved to Los Angeles in late 2016. When Madison first arrived in Los Angeles, she began writing songs for artists at Sony Music, creating music for commercials at Barking Owl in Santa Monica, and landing featuring slots on high-profile artists' tracks (Anthony Federov [American Idol], Leonell Cassio, Raye Zaragoza, APZE, Mic Kellogg). She also began making a name for herself as a songwriter at the world famous, Hotel Cafe, after selling out both stages and opening for artists like Kaleo, Wrabel, Rozzi Crane, Vincint, Lucy Rose Parton, Ari Herstand, and Tall Heights. Through all of these experiences, Madison was developing her personal artistry.
Currently, Madison is in the studio working on a new EP. It is produced by Justin Glasco (Ron Pope, Christina Perri, The Lone Bellow), mixed by Bryan Cook (U2, OneRepublic, Radiohead, Delta Rae) and mastered by Grammy-award winning, Hans DeKline (U2, Diplo, Pixies).
Madison Malone has written for artists at Sony Music, Warner and more as well as performed at some of the world's largest music festivals including SXSW and SUMMERFEST, where she was voted 'Favorite Emerging Artist'. The singer-songwriter performs across the country selling out high-profile venues in cities including Los Angeles, and New York City. She also recently headlined a European tour expanding her fan base world wide. Madison Malone is continuing the next chapter of her musical endeavor with her feet planted and her voice directed toward connecting us all. 'Quiet Down 2' and music video are due for release summer 2019.
Madison Malone intends for her music to be the saving grace in times of distress. It is her mission to plaster the sky with the eyes of love and hope.
