Madeline has a very strong passion for music and performing, influenced by acoustic guitar and live music. Her strengths lie in lyric writing and accomplished guitar playing.

She was the Hawkes Bay Smokefree RockQuest Winner this year and was also presented with the regional Women’s Musicianship Award. She was one of the 8 emerging artists selected for the Auckland University Songwriting Scholarship and placed first in the University of Otago Sheliah Winn Shakespeare Composition Competition and was named the supreme winner of the festival. Madeline recently became a finalist in the Cabana Songwriting Competition and was presented the Best Female Solo Artist award 2013 from The Cabana. She was a finalist in The Lion Foundation’s Play It Strange and gained the Ian Morris Tribute Award for Best Song last year at the New Zealand City Showcase. Madeline is always keen to play live gigs and open for bands/artist’s playing around Hawkes Bay and at the Cabana.
