From a young age, Madelyn’s primary passion was to sing and explore the musical elements that make up a song– developing a keen ear for harmony and pitch at five years old. Madelyn fell in love with guitar, piano and the craft of songwriting at age ten; won songwriting competitions including The American Songwriting Awards (ASA) by fifteen; earned distinguished awards from the National YoungArts Foundation by 17; and was selected as a 2018 Presidential Scholar in the Arts Finalist by 18. In lyrics clever and mature beyond her years, Madelyn captures stories of love, friendship, heartbreak, vulnerability, nostalgia, new beginnings and female empowerment. She strives to present fresh perspectives on these universal topics, pen memorable hooks and continue to develop her own writing style. Among her biggest musical influences are Ben Rector, Maren Morris and Kelsea Ballerini. Over the last few years Madelyn has taken impressive steps towards creative autonomy, including in the production and engineering of her own work. Madelyn currently attends New York University's Clive Davis Institute of Recorded Music.
