Madi Sipes and the Painted Blue is a band from San Francisco, fronted by singer and electric guitarist, Madi Sipes. With her captivating voice and mature songwriting, Madi started gaining fans at a young age in her hometown of Placerville, California. While performing one of her songs at a summer camp talent show, Madi caught the attention of counselor and Los Angeles-based songwriter Andrew Heringer. The two began long-distance collaboration over the next few years, while Andrew was performing and touring in the band Milo Greene.
In the spring of 2015, Madi recruited longtime friends Nick Cunningham (bass) and Caleb Koen (drums) to form her band. The band traveled to Los Angeles to finish writing and recording the final few songs for Madi Sipes and the Painted Blue’s forthcoming debut: After Hours. Pulling from a diversity of influences -- including Ella Fitzgerald, Frank Ocean and Fleet Foxes -- After Hours showcases what The Sacramento Bee describes as “feisty and sultry indie soul pop."
