Powerhouse Soul singer Madelyn Grant rounds out Main Stage lineup

b2ap3_thumbnail_10349086_496507110486971_4969532497056095841_n.jpgAnn Arbor’s Madelyn Grant is a young Soul and R&B singer who grew up listening to Aretha Franklin, Marvin Gaye, Stevie Wonder and is heavily influenced by Lauryn Hill, D’Angelo and Erykah Badu. You can hear the impact of those greats in her carefully nuanced performances.

Her original lyrics are emotionally driven and empowering. Her sultry voice and smooth tone hypnotize the listener. Put simply, her voice is absolutely captivating.

Madelyn has been gigging around the Metro Detroit and Ann Arbor area for about a year now, performing in various venues such as The Ark, Hill Auditorium, The Old Miami, The Blind Pig, Earthwork Harvest Gathering, Hoctoberfest, Homegrown Festival, Ann Arbor Art Fair, PeaceFest, and more.

Though Madelyn has just started playing clubs and festivals in the last year, she has written music and collaborated with ODESZA, FKJ, and Emancipator, with more collaborations in the works.

The single “Waiting” from French producer FKJ features her vocals and songwriting and has over 1 million plays on SoundCloud,

Madelyn just graduated from the University of Michigan and hopes to continue performing, writing, and collaborating more in the future.   

You won’t want to miss her set which starts at 3pm on the Main Stage. There, or square.

Stream her collaborations and solo work on SoundCloud.

Check out her acoustic cover of Sara Bareilles’ “Vegas” on YouTube.
