Madison Olds is a singer/ songwriter who writes and performs across multiple genres including pop, adult contemporary and folk pop. Her live show is energetic and reminiscent stylistically of her favourite artists, Ed Sheeran and Julia Michaels.
Her band, Bees and the Bare Bones, won the national 2016 Chevy Tailgate Find the Next Local Legend competition. This took them to Nashville where they recorded Fool, which became a featured bonus track during the Chevy Top 20 on CMT hosted by Paul McGuire, November 2016.
January 2017, she received Emerging Artist of the Year award with the City of Kamloops. An early career highlight for her was in summer 2017, when her band opened the same stage as Kacey Musgraves and Willie Nelson at the Rockin’ River Fest in Merritt.
In addition to writing and performing she has hip hop, tap and stage actress experience. She has performed in roles like Belle in Beauty and the Beast and Emotional Creatures, a play bringing awareness to international women's issues. Implementing her talents for social causes, Madison was also featured on CBC Radio and CTV News online for her song "Somebody Loves You" taking a stance against bullying.
2018 saw the promotion of the theme song for the Kamloops 2018 British Columbia Winter Games singing it at the opening and closing ceremonies to over 5000 athletes and volunteers. That song, "Moments in the Mountains" has over 160k streams on Spotfiy. Two more singles, "Too Late" (a collaboration with Joey Hyde) and "Can't Touch" can be found on all digital streaming platforms.
Grateful for the community support she's received over the years, Madison supports causes like the SPCA, obvious in her two beautiful rescue dogs from Mexico and Los Angeles. She also has a passion for Christmas Amalgamated and is excited to perform for the Forward Foundation (Vancouver) who focuses on make-a-wish dreams for adults 18 - 39.
Singles from her debut album will begin releasing September 28, starting with THANK YOU, written by Madison Olds, Abby Wale, Brad Stella, Bobby Campbell and produced and mixed by Van Howes Studios (grammy nominated Brian Howes and Jason van Poederooyen).
