Another month, another female Australian singer-songwriter on the come-up from Down Under. But even if indie-rock Madeleine Jane Woolley — aka Maddy Jane — is the latest in a fairly long line of artists, she stands out from the pack thanks to the no-frills songwriting, grounded lyrics and endearing drawl she puts to good use on this impressive 11-song debut. Not bad at all.
THE PRESS RELEASE: “Maddy Jane is an independent singer-songwriter from the small island town of Bruny Island, Tasmania. Telling it like it is since 2017; Maddy’s honest lyrics and captivating song writing have earned her a regular spot on the airways and a place on huge arena tours supporting the likes of Harry Styles and Red Hot Chilli Peppers. With millions of streams for breakout tracks Thank You and Sorry and No Other Way, Maddy’s ironic and direct storytelling is resonating across the globe. After two years of heavy touring and sold out shows, Maddy has bunkered down in the studio and recorded her debut full-length album, Not All Bad Or Good.”
