I’m beyond excited to introduce this intelligent, exhuberant artist that isn’t afraid to live life her way and proudly. She’s unapologetically herself and she wants everyone to be able to express themselves, too.
Introducing… Madeline The Person!
Madeline invites you to come to Personville, her gorgeous rainbow-decorated art emporium where all humans and feelings are welcome and open to express themselves. The Houston, Texas, native has spent a large portion of the last year creating her following on TikTok via her soulful covers of artists from Frank Ocean and Lizzo to Brandi Carlile and Joni Mitchell.
Her deeply personal single, “As A Child,” is out today via Warner Records. Watch the video above. Listen below.
She explains: “The difference in the way that I express my personality versus my music, I think that has to do with my belief in the fact that all emotions are equally important. With my music, I’m trying to normalize the sad and hard and really gross stuff and make it more acceptable and less scary, because to me, as a person, I am all of those things combined. I’m super sad and also really happy and joyful and grateful. I have a lot of emotions and I don’t like to boil it down to just a few. I like to show lots of facets at a time and sometimes, that creates a juxtaposition that I think makes it kind of cool.”
Music and learning piano and guitar were always important to her, but it was loss of her of father a few years ago that really pushed her to write without holding back, and to feel every emotion. Throughout her journey of unimaginable grief, Madeline continued to flourish as a songwriter, never afraid to share her story in her music, no matter what.
Following the release of “As A Child,” Madeline will guide us through her human experience via a series of musical chapters (or EP’s) set to release throughout 2021, the first of which will arrive next month.
