Madeline Kenney


Madeline Kenney is an Oakland-dwelling Seattle transplant, whose background in bakeries, neuroscience, and modern dance curiously add up to an individual form of twang-hazey dream-pop. Imagine if Loretta Lynn had a secret shoegaze project and a looper pedal obsession—you might come pretty close to Kenney’s enchanting songs. Recently, Kenney traded in her looper for an ace backing band featuring members of Astronauts, etc., Bells Atlas, and Perhapsy. Working together, these talented musicians expand Kenney’s sound into a Creation Records-influenced fest of buttery distortion, driving rhythms, and soaring vocals. Her first EP, Signals EP, was released on Company Records in June 2016.
