Sony Music Publishing Nashville has signed breakthrough singer-songwriter Madeline Edwards to a worldwide publishing agreement.
Edwards incorporates jazz, soul, gospel and country influences into her unique sound. She was listed as a Hot Country Spotify Artist to Watch 2022, a member of CMT Next Women of Country’s class of 2022, and was named a Top 20 Breaker artist on NPR.
Currently working on her debut album, she made her national radio debut on Sirius XM and released “Port City” as the follow up to her hit song “The Road,” which has garnered over 6 million streams to date. She has performed on Lady Gaga‘s Born This Way tribute record with The Highwomen, NPR‘s Tiny Desk Concert, and made her national television debut at the 2021 CMA Awards where she sang alongside Mickey Guyton and Brittney Spencer.
Edwards also recently embarked on the “All American Road Show Tour” alongside Chris Stapleton. Featuring Sheryl Crow and Willie Nelson, the April 23 stop in Lexington, Kentucky marked Edwards’ first stadium show.
“True artists like Madeline don’t come along every day. It was obvious from our first meeting that she has a gift of revealing her heart in each song,” Sony Music Publishing Nashville CEO, Rusty Gaston, notes. “We can’t wait for the world to discover what we’ve already gotten to experience.”
Sony’s Senior Manager of Creative, Mya Hansen, and Creative Coordinator, Synnovea Halsel, add, “We knew from the moment we saw Madeline play that she is an extraordinary talent with limitless potential. We are thrilled to welcome her into the Sony Music Publishing family!”
“I knew SMP was the right family for me the moment we connected. I’m very excited for this new chapter and the music I’ll be creating with this team,” shares Edwards.
