Ann 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.
