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.
