"New York Performance"

It seems Nashville followed me home as I not only ran into Brad Paisley at the airport who promised me an interview on my next visit, but I also happened upon up-and -coming singer/songwriter Jenny Madison who was on her way to New York to perform at the BITTER END'S Chick Singer Night that following Tuesday. After hearing Madison's CD there was no way I was going to miss this show. Although the talent was plentiful, it was Madison who made the evening shine. Despite a tacky intro that served no purpose other than to poke fun at singers from Nashville, this sassy Southern girl promptly put the hecklers in their place a with a dynamic performance of music off of her current CD CONVERSATIONS WITH MYSELF. Her songs were impassioned and intimate, her presentation honest and vibrant, her powerful voice exuded fervor and dimension-All the basic elements that add up to a bright future. - Country Music Scene

"An altogether splendid singer and clever writer."

"CD Review"

Forget all you anticipate about female singer/songwriter albums - this woman isn’t sitting around picking’ flowers - she rocks! From the Stephen Stills-influenced lead guitar work in “Midnight” through the tension-filled acoustic work in the closer, “Nothing’s Wrong” the musicianship compliments top-notch songwriting. These songs have impressive textures - especially the work in “Never Be The Same”. And the CD’s centerpiece, a powerful study of religion called “Paper Jesus,” is a work of art that is remindful of Matraca Berg and Gretchen Peters in their finest works. This CD is rock, pop and folk, rhythmic and energetic with grooves Winwood and McDonald would be happy to create, combined with lyrical and melodic sensibilities that suggest a solid future is ahead for this talented songwriter and singer.

"CD Review"

My first reaction was “Wow”, and that was just her picture!! My second reaction on hearing the album was also, “Wow”! It’s brilliant! Having learned her craft after being inspired by her grandparents musical offerings to the church this is one songstress I hope to hear more about. If you like Shawn Colvin, Lucinda Williams or Mary Chapin Carperter, you’ll want to hear Jenny Madison. Hearts and flowers it ain’t. Good soul searching music it is. Straight from her soul to yours.

"CD Review"

As a consumer in a record store, the first thing you’d see with this CD is a cover photo of Jenny Madison, an attractive player, singer and writer. Regardless of what genre you find her bin in, what genre you’ll hear might be up to you to decide. You have to hear it to appreciate it. When you do, you will. The more acquainted you get with Madison’s music, the better it sounds. Who knows? You might become close friends.

"Performance review/New York"

A lot of talent and power packed into a delicate package....Arrived in NY the day of her performance barefoot, adorable and exhausted from sight seeing.....she grabbed her guitar, and effortlessly took our amazing NY band by storm as she lead them through her tunes @ rehearsal. A few hours later, she gave a stellar performance at THE BITTER END like she had performed there a million times. As Director of NYC's Chick Singer Night, I hear a lot of talent, and this young lady leaves a lasting impression.
I predict an extremely promising future for her. Her songs are memorable, her voice & presence sells them!

"Conversations With Myself". Self-produced release, 2005. Highly anticipated 2nd album will be released in May 2009.



Jenny Madison's debut, Conversations with Myself is long overdue but yet somehow right on time. With a pocketful of intimate songs, Madison made the move to Nashville. She quietly began making a name for herself as a 'triple-threat' artist that writes, plays and 'sings out' from that deepest part of the body and barest layer of the soul. Her performances bathe the listener in a lyrical wash of imagery that both console and inspire.

Madison soon landed a coveted writing deal for the oldest and most prestigious publisher in Nashville, Acuff-Rose. While the experience was a great learning period, she found herself in a position of having to choose between artistry and industry. The conflict proved time for a change which resulted in Jenny leaving behind the writing gig and forging straight into the studio to record her own album. Those sessions gave freedom to each musician to 'feel' the parts and enhance the songs with their own interpretation. The whole project came together with ease and she became aware that she had been true to herself and the songs.

Growing up in Louisville, Kentucky, music was never an ambition or business, but rather a way of life. Her paternal grandmother could relate any situation to a certain song and sometimes felt compelled to sing it loud to someone she was conversing with at the dinner table or even a stranger at the grocery store. Music played an important role and seemed to make living easier.

Madison was blessed with that deep-rooted 'music-in-the-blood' way of life but was additionally given the gift of voice so powerful that it was evident early on that she was born to perform. The artist witnessed her grandparents 'reaching out to touch people with music' with original songs they wrote to perform every sunday at church. Jenny's still 'reaching out' and sharing her own life experiences through music the same passionate and honest way her grandparents did. That's the way it's supposed to be.
