Artist Bio

Her artistry has been deemed a heated mixture of sultry vulnerability and raw emotion and she is often described as, "an edgier Sarah Mclachlan." Ethereal operatic vocals, in combination with her poignant lyrics and piano driven songwriting place her in a category all on her own.

Joelle Maddyson is a Nashville-based songwriter with awe-inspiring talent. Born in southwest Louisiana, Joelle Maddyson was singing long before she could speak. Her musical journey took off in her early teens, soon after her family relocated to California's central valley.

Joelle received the only Command Performance award given at The Solo & Ensemble Festival in 2002, and was immediately recruited to CSU Stanislaus. She received the highest scholarship at the time for her vocal audition. She then spent three years studying both Vocal Performance and English. As it became clear that her true passion lies in songwriting, Joelle took a break from school and began performing in local venues. Within months, Joelle was touring the west coast. She was invited to play on news programs, radio stations, and was nominated three years in a row for the prestigious Modesto Area Music Association Award.

Joelle's journey then led her to Nashville, where she was discovered by the highly esteemed Producer Billy Smiley (White Heart). She is currently completing an album with Billy Smiley and Bill Whittington. (Bill Whittington is the award winning engineer who worked on many of Amy Grant's hugely successful albums.)

Joelle was also awarded the LaFaMos Grant for Independent Artists. She was also selected to be featured on the 2010 National Indie Grrls Compilation CD. She is also a SESAC member. Most recently, Joelle's song "Say Anything" was chosen as the FIRST PLACE winning song in the Pop Category in The Nashville Songwriter's Festival Challenge! With over 2.5 million myspace hits, Joelle continues her dedication to fearlessly personal singing and songwriting.

thank you for the review of "Unconditionally" and I agree with your comments about the production and the length...it was recorded in my "home" studio and produced by me in a hurry...it was a gift for my wife on valentines day...and of course, I waited until the night before to do it...ha ha....anyway, I may rerecord this one day and shorten it...once again, thanks for the review and I wish you the best of luck!
