While I was living in Montreal last year I teamed up with another Australian performing artist, the beautiful singer/songwriter/ guitarist Madeline Leman. Maddy describes herself as "a spicy mixed bean wrap of folk/acoustic/pop with a fresh side of country". She seamlessly combines poetic lyricism with soulful melodies to create a mesmerising stage presence. And her lusciously long auburn locks (and I mean LONG) never fail to captivate a crowd.
Maddy and I performed at local organic markets, including Marché Fermier and the McGill Farmers' Market, until it was too cold for Maddy to finger pick and my hoop turned to ice. We were accompanied on occasion by the talented Derek Harrison.
