Welcome, Maddisun. For those who are new to you can you give us a small intro about you and your music?
Hi! Maddisun (Maddison Keiver) here! I was born in the small town of Cranbrook, BC. I started playing music at the age of 5 and have been on this journey now for the last 20 years. I always knew I was destined to make music. I come from a super musical family.
My music is very positive, and uplifting, with an indie folk/Americana sound.
What were your early inspirations for getting into music?
I was super inspired by female musicians growing up – the first being Dolly Parton. My aunts are country music singers and were always singing her songs. Then I became obsessed with Avril Lavigne when I was about 8, and then once Taylor Swift came onto the scene, I knew I had to start songwriting. My parents played mostly classic rock, ‘70s/’80s music when I was growing up, and this was also a huge early inspiration.
