As an artist, Vancouver-native Madeline Merlo personifies her coastal upbringing – and nothing states that case stronger than the laid back, seemingly effortless feel to her sound. With fresh, fun and, occasionally, quirky melodies, and an unmatched depth in both vocals and lyrical storytelling, her music bridges the perfect pop-country gap. “I want people to have fun when they listen to my music… But I also want to be able to say something at the same time.” Madeline has already seen an impressive career, releasing a series of successful singles to Canadian country radio – including debut “Sinking Like A Stone,” “War Paint,” “Whatcha Wanna Do About It,” “Neon Love,” “Dear Me,” “Kiss Kiss” and her most recent country radio hit, “It Didn’t.” On April 13, 2020, Merlo appeared on hit NBC show Songland, where her song “Champagne Night” was chosen by 7-time GRAMMY® Award-winning group Lady A. The trio released the “summertime anthem” (Country Now) digitally the next day, making it the singer-songwriter’s first cut. “Champagne Night” has since topped the US country radio charts for three weeks, making it Lady A’s 11th number one. Social media platform TikTok helped Merlo’s current single “It Didn’t” reach Rolling Stone’s Breakthrough 25 chart last month. The song is available on all platforms now.
