The OfficialMadie Bio
Pop country artist Madie empowers her music with emotional potency, offering energy and thoughtfulness in a sound that is simultaneously introspective and outgoing. Strong melodic hooks and lyrical intelligence are staples of Madie's distinctive songwriting and country music will forever recall the indelible mark of an artist such as this.
Be glad that Madie needed an emotional outlet for otherwise such soul-stirring and entertaining music might not have come to fruition. “Music has always been a big part of my life. It is my creative outlet and always provides me an emotional release.” Madie's bravery in wearing her heart on her sleeve through her songwriting allows listeners intimacy with an artist whose soul is deep and which knows a broad range of ideas and emotions. There is a richness to these songs the likes of which few artists can claim.
Touching the Listener
The emotional catharsis Madie finds through music is fulfilled by the act of making contact with others through songwriting. “It is my goal to write music that touches the listener.” Opening up the full communicative channels of music enables Madie to tap into a neverending source of creative energy as artist and listener feed off of each other in artistic symbiosis. “I hope that what I write moves others who have had the same experiences. My wish is that there will be a connection and they will be able to relate to the lyrics.”
The Artist at Work
Madie frequents the Opry Circuit and plays festivals all over the map. She has taken the stage at such venerable venues as the Moe Bandy Theatre in Branson, Johnnie High's Country Music Revue in Dallas, Branson on the Brazos in Waco, Texas and more. Madie nabbed second place at the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo Talent Competition. March 2002 witnessed her performing with Steve Holy at the Spirit of Oklahoma Firefighters Benefit and Madie has contributed her talent to the support of a number of other causes, including cystic fibrosis, Meals on Wheels, Partners in Education and the Palace Theatre restoration. Her debut, “Dream On,” hit the streets in 2003 and quickly earned her a stellar reputation, garnering glowing reviews. It received play on a number of radio stations, domestic and international. “At Last” alighted on the number three spot in the Top Twenty countdown for 2003 on The Majic of Austin Music, KKMJ 95.5. “Here Again” climbed to the number four position on the Ison Live Radio Chart in Australia. Madie is hard at work on her next album, “Once Upon a Time,” at Scott Reynold's Studio in Round Rock, Texas. She is writing most of her songs in collaboration with her sister Marsha Grace and also co-writes with singer-songwriters in the Austin area. Madie is currently working with A&R Select, the hottest indie A&R firm in Hollywood, CA.
