Take 5 With Madison Deaver

Indie pop/rock artist Madison Deaver just dropped her debut EP ‘Tongue Tied’ on the 4th of June. The 22-year-old has been involved in music from a super young age, and her extensive history is visible in the absolutely killer, cohesive artistry seen in the EP.

With an up-tempo sound reminiscent of female singers of the 90’s, this EP highlights her personal struggles with love, friendship and business. Strengthened by her ‘Dear Diary’ approach to songwriting and impressive vocals, ‘Tongue Tied’ is a compelling entrance to the scene, featuring collaborations with US and UK artists and producers.

To celebrate the release of the collection we got to know Mads a little better, getting the inside scoop on the music she loves- and FYI, the all-female lineup she’s curated is so good.
