Biography

The New Waterford, NS based Madame Brown formed with a clear goal, to make music that had hips; music which leaves you with no choice but to dance. The Madame Brown sound is a hybrid of modern rock, trance and post-punk/nu-disco rhythms coloured and driven by soaring, psychedelic guitars and funky, jazz inflected keyboards which fuse together to form a wall of sound to move the body. The band's rich and organic sonic textures are accompanied by introspective, observational lyrics with subject matter ranging from everyday relationships and insecurities to deep reflections on the current state of today's world.
The extremely high energy, feel good, improvisational and often times rave-party atmosphere of Madame Brown's stage show quickly made the band appealing to 'jam band' fans as well as a college aged, club frequenting audience. The band's penchant for sing-a-long-able choruses and a high level of crowd participation has helped them garner support from a more traditional audience, transplanting the feel of an 'everybody knows each other east coast kitchen party' into nightclubs and other live venues.
Madame Brown's reputation as zealous live performers has seen the band perform live over 100 times including a headlining spot at Sydney, NS's annual independent music festival Gobblefest, a New Year's Eve performance at The Gothic Arches in Saint John, NB, two headlining spots at Springhill, NS's Biggest Little Party In The Universe ('06 and '07), The Canada Day Countdown in Market Square in Saint John, NB, The Sunseekers Ball in Chance Harbour, NB, as well as showcasing at Music Nova Scotia's Makin' Music in 2007. Madame Brown are following the momentum of their strong live history with the release of their debut album "Humans" in Summer 2010.

Set List

A Madame Brown set is anchored by a strong cannon of original material which is ever evolving due to the group's penchant for live improvisation. Live staples include tracks such as "The Housesitter", the crowd favourite sing-a-long "She Ain't Scared To Dance", the heavy and omnious "The Collectors" as well as the mammoth rock/trance hodgepodge that makes up "Anndowne/Anndowne II". Madame Brown occasionally dip into their intriguing catalog of covers and offer their own spin on artists such as Fatboy Slim or Electric Six.
