Join us Sunday Jan 4th 2015 @ The Roayal Room in Seattle, Wa. for a great night of music starting at 5:30pm!
Doors 5:30pm || Showtime Madeline Taquin – 6:00-7:30pm & Ama Trio – 8pm-9:30
Since the 2012 release of her EP Another Trip Around the Sun, Madeline has spent her time developing and touring a repertoire that leans closer to soul and blues than the orchestral-pop flavor of her debut recording. In “The Acorn and the Oak,” a romantically wandering melody reminiscent of a Chopin nocturne is woven through a driving blues ballad in compound meter. In “Twinkle Twinkle Little Satellite” she quotes the familiar nursery song melody and then corrupts it in chromatic fashion, resolving into a doo-wop anthem about relativity. The thread that ultimately weaves it all together is a nimble 3-octave voice that adapts gracefully to the musical whims, and her disarmingly big, bold and heart-driven stage presence.
Stay tuned for the new album, estimated to hatch in Spring 2015.
“…a creative tour de force.”
