MADELEINE MAYI


8:30pm MADELEINE MAYI

To understand California native Madeleine Mayi is to know that her first word was “no,” a powerful sentiment now tattooed on the inside of her arm. A thoughtful and introspective artist with a voice as agile as it is soulful, Madeleine has never been afraid of going after what she wants. Having found her love for performance at a young age, Madeleine sought inspiration from her own experiences and began writing original music at sixteen. Even as a burgeoning songwriter her ability to speak from an honest and unapologetic place has touched those that have heard her play. While in her second year of university Madeleine self-released her debut EP, Just The Six Of Us, an R&B pop record.
Ever learning and expanding her expression as an artist, Madeleine wanted to challenge herself stylistically and by focusing on specific themes. Her second EP, “shy”, focuses on the manifestation of uncertainty and distance in personal relationships. Released in November of 2018, “shy” was premiered on Ones To Watch and her song “RECORD SPEED” was featured on Spotify’s Fresh Finds playlist
