It is undoubtedly Madeline’s voice that sets her apart from other singer-songwriters.
As clear and precise as handbells with just the slightest country twang, its haunting
quality is the perfect vehicle for her smart, sensual lyrics.
Her 2006 Orange Twin release, “The Slow Bang”, is produced by Phosphorescent’s Matthew Houck,
whose ghostly piano and laid-back, well-placed percussion accompanies Adams’ own uniquely simple
finger-plucked guitar, setting an intimate stage for the heart-breaking work of this southern siren.
Madeline Adams was raised in the vibrant music scene of Athens, Georgia, and began performing
her songs by the age of sixteen. Her 2003 Plan-It-X release, “Kissing and Dancing,” is now in its third
pressing and has earned her national recognition and a loyal fan-base. To date, she has been on eleven
national tours and has been billed along side acts like Nedelle, Jens Lekman, Antony and the Johnsons,
Robyn Hitchcock, Calvin Johnson, Tilly and the Wall and David Dondero.
