Hey Madelyn, congrats on the upcoming release of your debut song “Taillights Fade.” Can you share a bit of the backstory behind the song?
Thank you!! I’ve had so many talented artists working on this song with me. I really love to create break-up anthems for girls like me. I co-wrote this song with Lauryn Tauber and my producer Justin Klump. Once recorded, we also had Brian Malouf mix and master the track, which came out awesome. Overall, we couldn’t be happier with how the song turned out!
What message do you hope fans gain from your music?
I hope fans gain a sense of confidence from my music! For me, my favorite songs are upbeat break-up anthems, I love how “Taillights Fade” may help others move on.
What drew you into the country genre?
Listening to Carrie Underwood pulled me in the direction of country. I have always respected her tremendously, from her powerful vocals to the story’s she tells though her songs. I love how she hasn’t changed her personality from the rise of a small town girl to a star.
Who are some of your biggest inspirations in your music?
My biggest inspiration is Carrie Underwood, but vocally I love a lot of pop stars too, like Christina Aguilera, Kelly Clarkson, and Demi Lovato. They all have amazing voices and ranges that draw me in.
Can fans look forward to a music video for “Taillights Fade?”
Yes! We recorded a couple music videos in Nashville in September. It really hit me when I got the completed music videos back from my director. Having watched so many of my favorite artists music videos over the years, it’s really surreal seeing myself in one.
You just signed a deal with Vere Music – how did you know they would be the perfect fit for your career?
Working with Vere you feel like part of the family, instead of a big company. They are so knowledgeable and easy to work with, trusting them with my debut music was easy!
Can you share with us a little about your song writing process – what inspires you to write a new song?
I was on zoom with my producer Justin Klump and co-writer, Lauryn Tauber, and we didn’t really have an inspiration to start with. We took a few minutes to brainstorm, and Lauryn found a post on Instagram about watching taillights fading and the feeling it gives you. I had recently been writing about a break-up, so we decided to combine the two ideas. The game changer was how we turned the taillights fading idea into a positive thing for the singer and listener.
“Taillights Fade” is just your latest single from a year filled with great new music. What are your plans for 2023?
I am working on the next steps for the future releases. I am hopeful to be working on a bigger project by summer of 2023!

What advice would you give to other teen artists or creators?
My biggest tip for new artists is remember why you’re doing it. It’s always about the music! No matter how hard the music business gets, you can always take a step back and realize why you are working so hard. You love the music!
