"Don't hold your breath for that new Britney Spears club-hit. Instead, let me introduce you to a worthy alternative, sure to satisfy any thirst you may have for a new pop star. Lower east side diva Madison provides dance pop for the Pitchfork set, filling venues like Pianos and Rockwood Music Hall with her hip-shaking tunes and spunky persona. As a music supervisor by day, Madison has a vast understanding of indie rock's climate, a quality that shines through in her music.

Basically, Madison is freaking hot, and knows how to sing. Great songs, sexy image and a salty attitude. The only thing standing between her and mainstream fame is an upskirt shot from the paparazzi. Check out a few of her tunes on myspace."

“Madison is an indie artist who sounds like she should be on VH1…a four song EP where each song could be a potential single…If she can come up with an entire album filled with songs this good, there is no telling where her career could go.” - PopMatters

“If this four song introductory EP is any indication, Madison...
just might have the attitude from which rock and roll
divas are spawned…”

“Madison. Now here is a girl on the way up, hitting locals in the head with her mind bending posh, melodic, rock tunes. Her sound is heart poundingly deep and yet raw and exciting at the same time. People easily get lost in her music; moving, grooving, and head banging. To top that she is an amazing songwriter who puts her soul into what she says and connects them with a great sound. " - Buzzgrinder

Bio

Madison is a medical school drop out, neuroscience lab research scientist, psychiatric hospital volunteer come musician who decided to follow her dreams of writing, singing and performing after an awakening experience (read late night party) in a friend's music studio.

After recording a few dem tracks with famed producer Rupert Hine (Tina Turner, Suzanne Vega, Stevie Nicks), she chose not to go to medical school (yay!) she sent her demos to Windswept Pacific/Bugg Music (kings of Leon, Snow Patrol, Corinne Bailey Ray, Nick Cave) who signed her to a co-publishing deal. She put together a kickin' band, played and (plays countless shows at all the hottest venues and parties, including mercury lounge, the infamous BOX, specialty events- like a calvin klein show atop herald square), and released her debut EP dress them one by one on Gables Records, an independant label. She is currently finishing her debut album and is releasing her second EP in late september along with videos and studio footage.

She has garnered great press in Time Out, Village Voice, Popmatters, Amplifier, other magazines and music websites hailing Madison as the “musical Sylvia Plath" and "hot music for the pitchfork set" (limewire). Her first EP spun on college and specialty radio and was featured on LA'S indie 103.1.

In the last year she was picked up by Zync Music, exclusively for film and televison licensing. Alongside her are artists such as Imogen Heap, Akron/Family, Gomez, Grizzly Bear, !!!, Born Ruffians, Jamie Lidell, Andrew Bird, JEM,.... Her song Madscientist will be featured in the upcoming Hollywood film "the haunting of Molly Hartley" and a few more tracks will be heard in the upcoming episodes of Entourage, Weeds and Dirty Sexy Money in the fall. Madison just completed a music video 8 mm for her twisted cover of "lollipop" by
lil' wayne, and is in production for a musical she has completed the songs for.
She is also featured in the latest issue of NYLON JAPAN, as part of a spread on NYC artists. (read japanese?)
Madison is constantly evolving as a writer, performer and artist and is unafraid to take chances with her sound and body of work. One thing is constant, she is making music and will never stop.
