Madison Roe's newest songs definitely have a retro-nostalgic, throwback, guitar-based, pop-rock band sound, yet they are also fused with tasteful contemporary-inner-layers to please a wide audience from multiple generations. Madison weaves original, rich, social-commentary lyrics throughout her songs to create a thread of stories that interact subtly with each other.
Madison Roe's latest organic, pro-analog collection succeeds in taking her listeners on an addictive, sometimes-dark, always thought-provoking, 'de-ja-vu' journey back and forth between the past and the present.

On the side, Madison Roe also now does occasional modeling for the highly respected Verity Couture Decor / Cyndie Verity’s living works of art models for high-end celebrity events.
As an example, she just recently finished an event where she was one of 6 models featured at Alice Cooper’s 70th anniversary large charity event and private concert.
She also just finished 2 back-to-back prestigious events put on by Larry Fitzgerald, of the Phoenix Cardinals, where she again modeled on the red carpet and at the main events, as part of Verity Couture’s living art.

Madison does enjoy modeling but, of course, her music career is her primary focus and first love always.
PAST - MUSIC BACKGROUND -
GROWING UP ON KAUAI -
Madison Roe’s sound & style have certainly evolved over the beginning of her artist inception years, as she has organically grown and matured in her life, career and songwriting abilities.
Growing up on the island of Kauai, Hawaii, it was the natural thing for Madison, as a young artist, to start her songwriting style with the soft acoustic sounds of an ukulele & acoustic guitar, both so comfortable and familiar on the islands. Her sound at the beginning was definitely influenced by listening to artists like Colbie Caillat & Jack Johnson.
As one listens to Madison’s first two albums, written between the ages of 13 to 15 years old, her listener can discover the changes that have naturally evolved in her music over time as she's grown older. Picking up and falling in love with electric guitar at 16 years old, her sound of today has definitely evolved into a more current progressive Indie Pop / Rock sound, blended with nostalgic influences and organic styles from the past.
INITIAL MEDIA ATTENTION:
Madison was first known and written up as "The 13 Year Old North Shore Musical Prodigy" in the Garden Isle, Kauai, Hawaii's main local newspaper. Many media articles have since been written about Madison in multiple island and worldwide publications. (Find media links on 'Press' page @ madisonroe.com)
It's been said: "Madison is a rare treasure, worth seeking out & discovering while on Kauai.." AND... "This young blonde-haired, blued-eyed rising star, with that smoky, velvety voice to fall in love with, is destined to grow her music & career far beyond the shores of Hawaii". These independent endorsements alone, continually brought new audiences to see Madison at many of the exclusive, top-rated Kauai venues (ie. The St. Regis Resort, Kauai Beach Resort,The Sheraton, The Hyatt etc.).
Multiple songs from Madison's 1st two albums are still consistently playing on Hawaii radio & satellite radio worldwide.
ADDITIONAL PAST MEDIA ATTENTION:
THE BOOK: 'LIFE IS THE SCHOOL, LOVE IS THE LESSON' -
At the age of 13, Madison was chosen to be featured in a well-received book about certain Hawaii families' chosen forms of education (ie homeschooling, free schooling, private schooling etc.), recognizing the need for alternate, flexible systems of education for gifted, successful, people with island ties. This book was focused on professionals in both the surfing world and the music industry, who live on the islands. Madison’s 3-page feature in the book was directly before Jesse Carmichael’s feature story (Maroon 5). It was quite an honor to be featured in this beautiful full-colored, highly respected book.
And POP MAGAZINE – ONE OF TOP 5 TAYLOR SWIFT COVERS WORLDWIDE -
Nov 2012 - After an international YouTube video search by andPOP Magazine, Madison’s unique organic version of “I Knew You Were Trouble” on YouTube was chosen and featured as one of andPOP Magazine's Top 5 favorite Taylor Swift covers worldwide.
It's fun to look back on that performance now & see how young Madison really sounded then compared to now.
BEAUTY BLISS MAGAZINE FEATURE ARTICLE -
Beauty Bliss magazine, out of Canada, also discovered & fell in-love with Madison’s videos on YouTube. As a result, they did a 6 pg. feature article on Madison, which led to further international attention, as well.
A MADISON ORIGINAL SONG LICENSED TO CW NETWORK -
