With her vivid storytelling, poetic wordplay, genre-defying productions, and unique voice, Madilyn Mei (she/her) has made waves since she was a young teen. Thanks to her steady stream of new releases, and massive followings across TikTok, Instagram, YouTube and Spotify, the 20-year-old Arizona-based singer-songwriter is quickly becoming known for her innovative indie-folk twist on the bedroom pop genre. Only 2 years since releasing her first original music, Madilyn (a.k.a. Madi, Mads or Madders) has built an immersive, comforting, whimsical, and constantly fun world around her music, telling stories about video games, grade-school talent shows, missed connections, and escapist cosplay, while using clever language to implant a relatable deeper meaning. Writing and recording all of her music from her bedroom, Madilyn pairs her songs with hand drawn artwork and music videos, nearly all created by herself using a budget properly fit for a retail employee. Madilyn might have begun as just an Arizonian kid using music to escape her life folding clothes down at Target, but her journey is, without a doubt, about to take her to new lands, far far away.
