Who is Maddie Magdalene?
Maddie Magdalene certainly has a story to tell. Since a young age, she has enjoyed telling stories, in poetry, song, performance, and the written word. In a new chapter for the artist, this natural ability for storytelling is being lifted to new heights with daring production partnered with powerful vocals.
Maddie aspired to a life on the stage originally in musical theatre, at 17 she began to write her way out of a painful time and never stopped writing. With notable acclamations under her belt already such as Mayor of London Song Prize 2018, multiple spins on BBC Introducing in North and West Yorkshire, Amazing Radio, and Riverside Radio, Maddie Magdalene is a promising new artist.
The Unsigned Guide’s Jamie Hamilton praised Maddie’s early success back in 2019: “Maddie radiates a natural ease.. when it comes to music-making. Her melodies are expressive and infectious, her voice is distinctive and her lyrics honest, giving her an edge in a crowded singer-songwriter marketplace.”
As Autumn 2021 approaches, emerging from the cocoon of staying at home Maddie Magdalene is set to release new music and play her first headline gig.
'A Song I Could Write' is a lovely piece of folk-pop that unfolds like a warm autumn afternoon. It is fitting that the track's title and opening lines refer to the songwriting process, as Maddie radiates a natural ease with when it comes to music making. Her melodies are expressive and infectious, her voice is distinctive and her lyrics honest, giving her an edge in a crowded singer songwriter marketplace.

In response to 'A Song I Could Write'.
..the one thing that really stood out for me in that track was the kind of pain that she had in her voice. It really added a lot of emotion.. which I really enjoyed.

Deceptively gentle, and then suddenly this powerful voice arrives from nowhere and takes us on a great journey..

..this is certainly adventurous and a tad rebellious; but that’s what I like about it..
