Maddi St John on SoundBetter

Fierce but no one knows it yet, so get in early so we can make something absolutely fantastic together! Collabs get 1+1 to equal 4

I'm 22 years old but have been writing since I was 9. I've "studied" the ways of Gaga, David Bowie, Prince, Frank Ocean, and others - influenced in all aspects by pop legends. I am well versed in current pop culture and trends, while also having an extensive background (being a huge fan) of musicians from the 70's and 80's.
Listeners of my music will feel emotion first and foremost. I do not write just based on personal experiences; good songwriters and producers have the gift of shape shifting and story-telling.

Songwriting is my top service (lyrics and/or melodies), but I am also a trained singer, growing up in a choir setting. I can replicate stylistically any female singer you desire, just let me know what you are looking for!

I am currently a Music Industry student at Drexel University. I currently work with The Recording Academy, working personally with and learning from Grammy nominated and award winning musicians. I am a booking agent for indie rock and pop bands in Philly, allowing me to see first hand the new music and bands coming out of the scene. I have been trained as a FOH and monitor live sound engineer, and would love to help with any live productions if you are hiring. Also, I tour manage! I would consider songwriting, singing, and tour managing my main gigs. Please feel free to contact me to discuss working together!

    Maddi is awesome to work with and has an exceptional ability to create catchy melodies. She's a great vocalist too.

    Maddi was quick to provide musical ideas, lyrics, and refine those as needed.

    The quality of work Maddi delivered was outstanding.

    With the proper exposure, she could totally breakthrough and become a name you come to know and love! She's a very talented artist.

    I look forward to collaborating with Maddi on more projects in the future!

    VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!! 5+ STARS!
