Madison Daniel tells us she’s been singing and acting since birth. This part-time Peninsula resident has been grounded in Australia, but she’s normally based in sunny Los Angeles. Well, until the day she was due to fly back to LA to record music on the same day that international travel was banned due to COVID-19. At 23, she’s scored some mega acting roles, including Neighbours, Winners & Losers and Seven Types of Ambiguity alongside Hugo Weaving.

Madison has always been passionate about music, writing songs and working with producers to create new material. Despite 2020 and everything that came along with it stopping the music, so to speak, Madison took it in her stride and announced it her “creative year”. It involved a bountiful amount of inspired writing, growing her music, online acting workshops, diving deeper into her spirituality, and launching an intuitive belief therapy business. Above all, Madison admits that it was grounding to be home as opposed to her normal knack of booking tickets the night before and whisking herself away. Busking is calling the free-spirited artist, and she’s just arrived in Byron to do just that. Gigs to launch her new songs are also high on the priority list, a concept that both artists and music lovers have no doubt missed.

“I’m exploring my shadow side and pouring that into my music,” she says. “It’s like a dark pop vibe. I’m unapologetic about my darker side and I write from all my personalities.”

It’s all in the genes for Madison; her grandfather was a “musical genius” and taught her piano and music theory, and her aunt is a singer. “Hands down my biggest inspiration comes from my family. I’m learning more and more each day how important their support, spirit and guidance has been for me to manifest what I want to achieve, be myself at whatever cost and believe that I can do anything that I set my mind to.”

Ahead is a year of everything falling into place for this talented musician. When we spoke to her, she had eight tracks ready to go that had been recorded in LA in 2019. She recently collaborated with Callie Reiff on Crash Into Me, which was released on March 12. It’s out on mau5trap – six-time Grammy nominee deadmau5’s label. Callie is a musical prodigy and industry trendsetter like no other. At just 21, she’s an accomplished producer, DJ and all-round performer who has opened for Ed Sheeran, Skrillex and more. Callie’s indie pop and electronic sound was the ideal match for Madison’s sweet unique sound and deadmau5’s expertise as one of the highest paid electronic music producers in the world.

“I’m so excited about the release and collaborating with Callie and cannot wait until we can play shows together as she’s in New York City,” Madison says.
