Introducing: Madeleine Rosenthal

Hey, tell us a bit about yourself.

Hey! I’m a singer songwriter originally from San Francisco, now living in Los Angeles. I’ve been inspired by so many different artists, but I’d say three of my biggest influences are Frank Ocean, Thom Yorke/Radiohead, and Erykah Badu. I love their non-linear, experimental, yet accessible and honest approach to music, it’s really powerful and refreshing. They don’t limit themselves to a particular genre or sound and that’s how I want my music to be. I’m always looking for ways to push myself and grow as an artist, so whether it’s electronic, alternative pop, R&B, I just want to create music that feels genuine. 

Where did the new single come from?

I’ve actually never had a song come to me so quickly. I came up with a chord progression I liked on the piano, found a trip-hop beat that resonated with me, and the lyrics, melody, and harmonies just kind of fell into place, I couldn’t stop writing. From there I sent a demo to Noah Mcguire, who I really respect as a producer, to see if he wanted to work on the song with me and luckily he did!

The whole process was really therapeutic for me, it’s a song about not relying on others to make you feel worthy and learning to let go of the people who are holding you back, as difficult as that can be sometimes. I hope it can empower people to realize how much strength they carry on their own, it’s something I needed to be reminded of.

Is there more content in the pipeline?

Yes! I have an EP that I recorded earlier this year which I’ll be releasing in September and am writing a bunch of new music right now as well.

What’s on the horizon for you?

I recently moved to Los Angeles and am still finding my place here, but I want to start collaborating with as many artists as I can and record a lot more material this year. I feel really driven to get things going. There’s so much I want to achieve and so many ways I want to use my voice, “No One’s Gonna Save You” is only the very beginning, I’m excited for what’s to come.
