Bio

Finalist APRA AMCOS Vanda and Young Songwriting Competition 2014

Her unique vocals deliver a provocative and heartfelt performance, gently stirring listeners and giving life to her nostalgia and imagery

A variety of artists have influenced Brooks, her great loves being independent female thinkers and writers of music. Stevie Nicks and Carole King were staples of her childhood and quickly found herself drawn to the tenacity found in artists such as Fiona Apple, Alanis Morissette and Meredith Brooks. More recently artists such as Sia for their attention to lyrical detail and ability to weave immense strength into their often vulnerable work.

Maddy Brooks performs with a pure joy for music and continues to write songs which carry the audience into a world of her own.

Maddy Brooks' Debut EP 'As the Sun Sinks' is available for purchase on Itunes and most popular music distributers

2016 promises to be an exciting year for this artist with new material expected to be released later this year.

Definitely one to watch .

This one starts unassumingly enough but by the three minute mark it's built up into a really lovely, rich little bit of sad-eyed pop.
