Interview with Paste Magazine
Madeline on NPR second stage
Athens, GA native Madeline Adams has been writing and performing her own songs since the age of 15, self-releasing her first album, "Kissing & Dancing," in 2002 -- just two years into her career. A few short months later, the LP was picked up by punk label Plan-It-X Records. "Kissing & Dancing" is now in its fifth pressing, and has earned her national recognition and a solid fan base. Madeline recorded one more album for the label, before moving on to Athens label Orange Twin, who have released works most notably by Sibylle Baier, Elf Power, Neutral Milk Hotel and Vic Chesnutt. Her 2006 Orange Twin release, "The Slow Bang," was produced by Matthew Houck (Phosphorescent), and recorded at his house in Athens. Though described in the past as a cross between The Softies, Kimya Dawson, and The Carter Family, Madeline now shares more in common with '70's superstars Joni Mitchell and Karen Carpenter. On her third full-length album, "White Flag," Madeline securely sets herself apart from her peers through her intelligent, emotional lyrics, her clear, haunting voice, and her unique song writing.
A note from Madeline: For the next six months (at least) I'm going to be focusing my attention on writing and recording. I've been enjoying all of the traveling but I need to settle down again. I'll be cutting down my computer time to just once a week so if I don't respond to your message, it isn't because I don't care. Please continue to send tour contacts. I love playing in your venue/living room/cafe!
