Her five siblings are Isaac, Haley, Caden, Alex and Jordan. The early years of Madilyn saw her studying at the ‘Grahams Elementary School’. She had a knack for singing and music from an early age which was well appreciated and encouraged by her family. She started writing songs and playing music at seven and also played in the marching band of ‘Boyceville High School’. *Though she wanted to take her musical interests further, being raised in a small village of 1000 odd people and having no option to shift to a place with better opportunities for music hardly left her with any choice. She then decided to start off with ‘YouTube’, like many other young talents.
Initially, she started recording covers in her bedroom with her simple camera and began uploading on YouTube. These included popular songs of artists like Madonna and Rihanna and within six months she started getting noticed. *As her viewership grew, Madilyn concentrated on ameliorating her YouTube channel and in that pursuit graduated six months earlier from her high school in 2011.

Madilyn Bailey Interview
‘Interview on Color Rising”
When you recorded a cover version of Sia and David Guetta’s track ‘Titanium’, did you have any idea that it would explode the way it did?
No, I had no idea it was going to be the video that really brought a lot of attention to my channel. I think when I listened to it back after we recorded it, I knew it was really special. I really tapped into a new part of my voice that at the time I didn’t know I had and that delicate falsetto has sort of become a signature of mine.
Many of your fans have followed your journey from recording cover versions of various tracks on YouTube to your original tracks. However, you have literally been playing music since around the age of 7! Growing up, did you always know that this was your calling?
Yes. It all started when I was 2 running around the house in diapers singing ‘I Want Much More Than This Provincial Life’ from The Beauty and The Beast soundtrack. Music is that thing I find myself doing even when I don’t realize I’m doing it. I’ve always been a storyteller and by writing original music I’m able to get my stories out to the world.
One thing that is evident is your diverse palette of music based on the wide range of artists that you have covered. Who were some of your influences growing up?
Well my first major influence was my Dad. He was always playing guitar around the house and he was my biggest influence for learning instruments. Also, when I was 7 my Dad sat me down and taught me how to write a song. He could clearly tell I had a lot of emotions in my little body that had to get out. I also grew up strictly on rock and worship music.
Back in 2012 you released your EP Bad Habit, which was really big in terms of production, engineering and even your vocal delivery. How was it working with Kevin Bowe on that EP? He’s someone who has worked with the likes of Etta James, Lynyrd Skynyrd and more.
Kevin Bowe is a very special person to me. He is basically my songwriting Mr. Myagi. He taught me so much about songwriting, vocal improv and the list goes on.
Your EP Wiser dropped in 2016. Whilst Bad Habit was definitely a great record, with Wiser you took things to an even higher level. Between that four year period of working on those two EPs, what were some of the things that you learned about yourself as an artist?
I’m a very concept based songwriter. I like the story line, titles and colorful lyrics. But when I first started songwriting in LA I felt like melody was prioritized over lyrics to the point that there was sometimes no story in the song and it didn’t matter as long as the melody was great. I tried to force myself in this box for a couple years, which did teach me a lot about how to write straight melody, but I felt like my songs were missing a little bit of soul. More recently what I’ve learned to embrace is my unique perspective as a songwriter. I’m carving out a place for myself where quirky lyrics meet interesting melody choices.
Your single ‘Tetris’ is another great and clever pop record. I love the metaphorical aspect of it. Can you talk a bit about the track?
When I was writing ‘Tetris’ the first thing that came to my mind was the title. I realized that being in a relationship can be similar to a really bad game of ‘Tetris’ where you put one piece in the wrong place and it spirals out of control turning into a giant mess. But it can also be like one of those magical games of ‘Tetris’ where every piece fits perfectly into place. I really wanted this song to portrait two imperfect people coming together to make something awesome.
Although you have used the power of social media, YouTube and more to showcase your talent, you have still gone through that long stretch of perfecting your craft. What advice would you give to young artists looking to break into the music business during this day and age?
Become a sponge and learn everything you can, but always remember and come back to your unique perspective as an artist. You don’t need to make music like anybody but yourself.
It’s amazing to think how many years of hard work you have put in with music considering that you’re only in your mid-20s. Do you ever sit back and take stock of your accomplishments in that time frame or are you continuously looking forward into the future?
I’m super happy with my life right now. I have a husband that fortunately works full time alongside me. I have two super cute puppies and a house that we’re currently working on decorating, but what I like to call the ‘curse of the dreamer’ is that even before I meet a goal I already have a dozen more that I want to reach.
