When did you discover your love for your craft and what made you realize you wanted to pursue a career in it?
I found my love for singing in the sixth grade. I actually was a dancer since I was two years old and in middle school, I got into the performing arts program. one of our first assignments was to sing in front of the class and the teacher told my mom to put me into voice lessons because I had a gift. eventually, I realized I loved singing so much more than dancing and I chose to sing, I don’t regret it at all. I realized I wanted to pursue a career a few years into really singing.
To what or whom do you accredit your sense of style?
My sense of style is a mix between things I actually like to wear and street style I guess. I really like the cool pants look. I’m short, (4’11 to be exact) so on stage when I perform I like to wear heels. I think the heeled boots are so cute. I also like oversized jackets I think they’re a nice touch over a simple tube top or body suit. So I’d say its like street-style.
On your upcoming project, how did you come up with the concept?
I was writing Speed Zone during the point in high school when college things were popping up. SATs, choosing a major and career path, etc. and it got to be a lot at one point. being 16/17 you had to choose like, right then and there what you wanted to do for the next X amount of years to make a living.
When you’re 17 they say you’re supposed to be having fun being a teenager and living your best life, not stressed over what you want to do for the rest of your life and choose a school that’s the best fit for you. there’s only so many schools with an education major program you know? SoIi wanted to write a song about slowing down and just living in the moment… because we’ve still “got time to grow.”
What are some of your greatest challenges, and what is your greatest attribute when it comes to your work ethic?
A lot of people tell me my music is very truthful. I write about real life events happening in my life and my own feelings. I’ve faced many challenges and obstacles in my life already and I’m only 18, so I think that shows in some of my music.
I don’t like to get too specific because I want people to be able to correlate my music with their own struggles. I want to be relatable and real. everything you hear in my music is about what I’m going through or what’s happening in my life. “did me wrong” was about like a first heartbreak, “speed zone” was about college stress. I don’t think I’m the best at what I do. There’s always room for improvement. but I, think I’m trying my best and always putting my all into whatI’mm doing.
What are your plans for the near future?
In the near future, I hope my music spreads and gets out to more than just locals. I recently just heard “did me wrong” on a college radio station and that was crazy because that was my first real goal, so that was really really cool. I hope I start releasing more and putting out more content and music.
I want to thank Tony Hanson for taking me under his wing as a shy little Maddie at 15 and helping her break out of her shell into the confident girl she is today and helping her believe in herself. I also want to thank my songwriter sacrvment (Ariel Omar) for helping me make my visions a reality and just knowing me better than I know myself when it comes to putting words into lyrics. and my mom, of course, she’s my biggest supporter and I really don’t know where I’d be without her support and endless love.
How can fans find you?
What suggestions do you have for other artists like yourself?
To other artists just starting out or in the works, patience is everything! I know right now it can be frustrating and you want things to move quickly but all good things take time. trust the process and make sure you’re putting your all into what you’re doing.
I got the name Maddie Lynn actually from my mom’s contact name in her phone. For whatever reason, she put my contact in like that and it kind of just stuck and flowed nicely. everyone calls me Maddie and my middle name is Lynn (named after my aunt) but it stuck and we went with that.
