Raised in the Shenandoah Valley, magic mountain girl and indie-folkish songwriter Maddi Mae likes to hide in the quieter corners of Virginia. “She’s a local artist who plays the guitar with an intuitive spirit, writes lyrics that spill directly from her soul, and sings like a tortured angel,” wrote Krysta Norma of Warrenton Lifestyle Magazine. Combining classic country, folk, and indie rock influences, Maddi Mae’s sound is reverb-heavy guitar (fingerstyle and big, sometimes jazzy, open-ended chords) and a distinct voice that is powerful, dynamic, haunting, and yet sweet at the same time. She released a 2-song EP Too Good to Be True / Sunshine on April 6th, 2019 and is planning to release her debut album – recorded with Lore Audio Productions in Flagstaff, AZ – in 2020.
