If we don’t know each other, my name is Madeleine and it’s nice to meet you ❤
I live my life in Los Angeles as an artist- and I’m writing to announce a new project I’ve been working on.
The project is a 5 song E.P. that will be titled “shy”.
It’s coming out in a little less than a month- on November 2nd, and it’ll be available anywhere you normally find music digitally. I am so excited.
I wanted to write something small to introduce you to the concept behind these songs.
If you know me personally, you know that I took a year off from university, and when I left I challenged myself to write songs in different styles and within specific themes. This led me to discover a topic that I resonated with and felt I could write about from different angles. That topic is uncertainty.
This is a topic that appears in our lives constantly- there is no end to uncertainty.
I became increasingly interested in how it blooms in our minds- in a positive and a negative way. It can either be completely crippling or totally freeing.
This is how the project began- writing under that thematic umbrella. It’s maintained that theme over time, but has grown into a tree of other things as well. Art and inspiration is amazing in that way, like a shapeshifting light that we can only try our best to keep up with and capture pieces of, to share with each other.
Creating this project has been especially transformative for me, and I am so ready to share it. I’ve been working with a small group of people that have added so much to the process, I could not be more grateful.
As I was listening to some of the mixes a few days ago- I recognized something that surprised me.
All these songs are rooted in feelings I had over the year that I never told someone.
This reveals a lot about me, and about the project itself- which is why it is titled “shy”. We all have things we choose to reveal and choose to hide.
I am choosing to reveal some of my personal thoughts and feelings through releasing these songs, as well as sentiments I think other people can relate to and hopefully find some clarity in.
I hope you get as excited about it as I am, and that you love it and share it with your people.
November 2nd! Mark your calendar!!
