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 23 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.

I am a trained singer, I have 10 years experience of singing professionally in choirs and work-for-hire recording sessions. I have been songwriting for about that long, but making a career out of it in LA for the last year or so. Because I have been dinging and recording myself and others for so long, I have learned how to vocal produce the heck out of a song. If you need help adding backgrounds, choirs, tweaking structure /melodies / lyrics, definitely reach out to me so we can perfect your song together!

I am also a sound engineer; I have been recording myself and others for about 3 years now and mixing records the last two. I mix mostly pop, rap, r&b, and indie pop records.

If you have any questions about my experience, please feel free to contact me to discuss working together!

    Astoundingly wonderful vocals from Maddi, she completely thrilled me with her stunning voice! Not only that, but she worked extremely hard and quickly for me, delivering exactly what was needed before the deadline. Communication was perfect too. It was a true pleasure to work with such a lovely top pro singer and I honestly can't wait to work with her again!

    Maddi knocked it out of the park with the song she wrote for my track! Not only did she provide something that fit the song to a T but she went above and beyond with a masterfully recorded and produced vocal performance. Over the years I don’t think I’ve ever had 0 revisions for a collaborator but Maddi truly understood what the song needed and delivered. I couldn’t be happier with the final result. She’s incredibly talented at what she does and I will absolutely be back for more!!

    Maddi is so talented! I am blown away with my two tracks and could not be happier. I had no revisions - she nailed it on the first draft. She understood what my vision was and incorporated my style perfectly to bring my songs to life. Catchy and unique- I am definitely working with Maddi again for any of my pop song needs. Highly recommend!

    Asked Maddi for a house topline in the style of Zhu/Disclosure and she really knocked it out of the park.

    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!
