In 1954, the hit tune Rock Around the Clock made Bill Haley a King of Rock & Roll. But did you know that his first musical title was Silver Yodeling Bill? Well, 15-year-old singer/songwriter Maddie Leigh did. You see, Maddie grew up listening to country music and was particularly drawn to the dynamic sounds of yodeling in songs like Cowboy Sweetheart and Little Lady Who. So when she began formal voice lessons, her teacher wisely incorporated her love of yodeling into her warm-up exercises.
Five years later, Maddie Leigh is a world class yodeler and one of country music’s hottest rising stars.
Maddie has spent most of her life on the west coast. But a childhood of riding horses, fishing, and a deep love of God & the U.S. of A. says she’s always been a country girl at heart. Country music speaks to her soul, and she has aspirations to join the ranks of her idols, Carrie Underwood and Martina McBride. And like those country superstars, she aims to use her music to create a positive impact on society.
Nashville VIPs have already taken note of Maddie’s unique and powerful sound, which charms with its nods to both the past and the future of the genre.
Her debut single, “Wishing” was released in early 2016 and her EP will be released in the late fall of 2016.
In 2015, Maddie Leigh won several awards in the West Coast Country Music Association Music Awards, including Female Entertainer of the Year. She has played at Tin Roof in Nashville, The Famous Bluebird Cafe in Nashville, Tin Roof San Diego, The Merc in Temecula, The San Diego County Fair, and many other smaller venues throughout Southern California and Nashville.

Ask 18 year old musician/singer/songwriter Andrew Bloom what THE most important motivating factor is in his life and he’ll look you straight in the eye with a great set of baby blues and say, “Well, it’s to play, it’s just. . .to play.”
Don’t be confused though. He does agree that the ultimate goal of the game is to become a star by topping the charts with a hit song, but until that happens, all he wants to do is play music! Oh–and not just in his living room for friends and family. Not even just for a panel of judges on a Reality T.V. competition American Idol. No, what Andrew means when he says “to play” is–to produce music for an audience of people in a concert hall or pub, to entertain, and to get paid for his efforts while doing it. For the record, that’s what he means!
