Daily Inspiration: Meet Madison Deaver

Today we’d like to introduce you to Madison Deaver.

Madison, we appreciate you taking the time to share your story with us today. Where does your story begin?
I’ve always loved music and singing. Some of my favorite times were driving in the car and asking my mom to turn the music up so I could sing. Sometimes I will still just go for a drive so I can listen to music and sing. I started taking voice lessons when I was about 9 or 10. I sang “Summertime” from Porgy and Bess for my first recital. About the same time, I was in a youth singing group that performed at different fairs and festivals around Southern California. When I was about 11, I started performing at different events and charity events. When I was 12, I started singing covers for YouTube. I sang anything popular from Pop to Country.

We all face challenges, but looking back would you describe it as a relatively smooth road?
I think that trying to be a successful musician is always tough. There is so much competition and so many ways to be heard now on social media. It takes a minute to figure out who you are with your own music. When I was younger, I did all covers of songs that I liked regardless of what genre the music or who the singer was. As I’ve gotten older, I am pickier about the songs I cover and now that I am writing my own music, I am finding my own sound. The path of being successful in this industry is definitely not a smooth or straight line and everyone’s path is different.

Thanks – so what else should our readers know about your work and what you’re currently focused on?
I consider myself a Pop Rock singer and songwriter. I began releasing my own music about a year ago. I’m really excited about being an independent artist and being able to play with different sounds, collaborate with other singers and producers. My writing has grown a lot in part because of the amazing people that I have been able to work with recently. I am currently working on two projects. My first EP which is still untitled and another self-produced project based off of my first ballad, I Forgive You. My EP will launch first in the next few months, I hope. I can’t believe the people that I have been able to work with for my EP… It’s the first time that I’ve been able to really guide my music and I’m able to work with producers and musicians from the UK and the US.

We’d be interested to hear your thoughts on luck and what role, if any, you feel it’s played for you?
I’ve had good and bad luck of course. I don’t think that there is any other way. I work as hard as I can in everything I do so I hope that when luck does come into play that I learn from the experiences.
