Madge
Producer, Songwriter and Artist

Madge is a producer, songwriter and artist breaking hearts and noses from their home studio in Los Angeles. Living at the intersection of earnest and absurd, they describe their world as cartoonish nihilism born out of Mormonism and family trauma. Madge’s music performance and composition reflects their fluidity and they frequently float between genres. Outside of their own project, they have collaborated with and written for Pussy Riot, Kaskade, and Slayyyter among others and have created multiple sound design projects in conjunction with scoring house Totem MX. Madge hopes to be part of a bigger, collective wave of change in the music industry with the rise of democratized music distribution and easy-access media. Described by Noisey as “weird” and by BBC Radio1 as “like chewing on toxic waste in the best way,” Madge is looking forward to a big 2021 riding the wave of recent pop-house release “Whatify.”
