About Madison King:

“Madison King makes the kind of infectious, country-tinged songs that Starbucks would play if they ever made good music choices. As an artist, King is really the whole package: lyricist, singer, and excellent guitar picker. Vocally, though, King brings a unique timbre and color to the stage that sets her apart from the rest, especially in more soulful tunes. It’s hard to find this kind of raw authenticity in mainstream music, which makes King’s ascent even more exciting.” – The Dallas Observer

Madison started playing guitar at 8 years old, and began singing in her teens. She learned and honed her skills by traveling down a well-worn path. “Growing up, the most natural way for me to practice and get better at playing guitar and eventually singing was in church. It instilled the confidence I needed to be able to perform original songs later on…..”

Madison graduated from Southern Methodist University in 2009 with a degree in Literature and has “used it to become an extremely well-spoken bartender. I started writing songs when I was 20 but it wasn’t until last year that I really decided that performing was what I wanted to do with my life….” Her first record, Darlin, Here’s to You, was released in 2010 to critical acclaim, landing her a spot on NBC’s The Voice, and earning radio play on AAA stations including top-rated KXT 91.7 in Dallas-Ft. Worth.

Madison has shared the stage with such notable acts as Wanda Jackson, Johnette Napolitano, Foreigner, Styx, Don Felder, Mark Cohn, Old 97s, Polyphonic Spree, Sandra Bernhard, and Chris Carrabba. Madison lists her influences as Ryan Adams, Joni Mitchell, Bob Dylan, Lauryn Hill…. “really from all over the place. I look to write accessible songs that are radio friendly that still have substantial lyrics.”

Onward & Upward is set for an April 3rd release on the newly minted State Fair Records, with a show at the legendary Trees venue in Dallas’ historic Deep Ellum.
