Madison Malone is stepping out of her artistic shell to release songs that use the light to illuminate 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 & 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 & get her voice heard.
After seven years of performing other people’s music, Madison felt inclined to evolve and write about her own experiences. To pursue this 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 an artist at the world famous, Hotel Café & Troubadour, after selling out both stages and opening for artists like Kaleo, Wrabel, JP Saxe, Tall Heights, Rozzi Crane, Vincint, Lucy Rose Parton, & Ari Herstand.
Currently, Madison is in the studio working on an EP. It is produced by Justin Glasco (Meiko, 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, she has performed at some of the world's largest music festivals including SXSW and SUMMERFEST, where she was voted ‘Favorite Emerging Artist,’ and her music can be heard on ABC's General Hospital & Netflix's Archibald's Next Big Thing. 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. ‘Home 1’ & music video were released fall 2019.
