Born into an artistic family, MadLyn began performing at age 3 and has been passionate about entertaining audiences ever since. Growing up in Southern California, she would begin to train her powerful vocals with a wide range of influences including Barbara Streisand, Whitney Houston, and Billy Joel. She tragically lost her mother to breast cancer when she was just 13, and after that began to immerse herself completely in songwriting and pop music. She later made the choice to honor her mother Madelyn, by taking on her name.Artistically choosing to drop the “e,” she would be known as MadLyn, in loving tribute to her mother.
After deferring her acceptance into the Berklee College of Music in Boston to study songwriting,MadLyn was cast in her first feature film, “Elena Undone,” which premiered at Outfest in 2010. In addition to playing a supporting character in the movie, MadLyn wrote and recorded “Suddenly,” an original song that was featured in the film and on its soundtrack.
Years of developing her craft have now led MadLyn to writing songs for other artists, including European pop sensation, Suzanna Lubrano, recording the title track for the film “Wheels,” appearing on Jimmy Kimmel Live! singing background vocals for bands like Youngblood Hawke, and recording vocals on the latest Jared Leto / Thirty Seconds to Mars album, “LOVE LUST FAITH + DREAMS.” MadLyn has also co-written with some of the music industry’s most prestigious songwriters including the legendary Billy Steinberg and Ken Hirsch.
MadLyn performs on a regular basis at various venues throughout the US, entertaining audiences both as a solo vocal/piano performer and with her other awesome band members. Her original music combines honest and self-aware songwriting along with her quirky piano playing pop sensibilities, and her covers of classics and modern music always includes her own style and interpretation. MadLyn is the creator & host of the ongoing breast cancer fundraising music event, “The Siren Song,” and released her first official single and music video “Kiss Me Goodbye” on February 17th 2015.
