“My inspiration for the “Taillights Fade” music video, was Taylor Swift’s video for “Tim McGraw,” out in nature, small town with a girl next door theme,” Madelyn shared with Got Country. “I really wanted to showcase the song itself, keeping the video self-explanatory with a simple teenage story so that the song could shine.”
Over the last few years, the New York native has spent hundreds of hours writing and recording music that exemplifies her undeniable passion for the craft and meticulous attention to detail. Not only does she create her music lyrically, but during the COVID-19 pandemic she taught herself how to mix and master songs further showcasing her tireless work ethic and desire to carve out her own lane of music in the industry. Growing up in a small town in central New York, the fifteen-year-old singer/songwriter discovered her love of music at only the age of four and has drawn inspiration from pop and country powerhouses such as Carrie Underwood, Kelly Clarkson, and Christina Aguilera.
Balancing her burgeoning career with full-time schooling, Madelyn’s passion for her craft is evident in her hard work, determination and life-long love of music. With a top team in place and an impressive catalog of songs starting to compile, Madelyn is primed to make “Taillights Fade” the launching point for a major recording career.
