Canadian Singer-Songwriter Madison Mueller Releases New Single 'Sweet Bitterness'
Madison Mueller's unique sound and style has captured the hearts of those that have been watching her grow online over the past 8 years, as well as those that catch her live shows, up-close and personal.
Her latest release is called "Sweet Bitterness", with this song, the desire to look at life the same way you would when you were a child is the most prominent source of inspiration. The hitting line in the song is “I wanna feel alive”, which encompasses the entire meaning of the song. The song was co-produced with Michael Jack, a very talented producer who has worked with artists such as Rush, The Trews, Hillary Duff, Bono, and many others. He has had singles charting on Billboard, and has received 25 Gold and Platinum Records. “Sweet Bitterness” also includes several other talented artists that have received national, and international awards over the past decades.
Madison grew up in the heart of Barrie, Ontario, which has been a hub for art and music for a number of years, for which she has contributed to for most of her musical journey. Whether it be teaching piano and vocals for the past six years, playing at local bars and venues, or out busking downtown during the summer months, Madison is very involved in making her presence known locally. She has been working with a Canadian Co-Operative called OMCI for the past three years, learning, and now teaching the ins and outs of the music industry to aspiring musicians and artists. Her love for her community and those within it brought her to receiving the Emerging Artist Award at the Barrie Arts Awards in 2019.
Since 2016, Madison has been releasing music on all the major streaming platforms. Her first single, “Who Am I?” began to gain online and FM radio-play after it’s release, and since then she has been consistently putting out new music each year that has been receiving the same accolades and traction across many different countries around the world.
Since her first release, Madison has given her fans five other singles, several of which have been nominated for different independent award shows, and has also topped the charts on several online radio stations! Madison began gaining more of a presence in the industry when she began to travel to different places to propel her career forward! She attended Judy Stakee Songwriting Retreat in Nashville, Tennessee in 2017, and then in 2018 she was a feature performer at the Millenium Music Conference in Pennsylvania. One of her most influential trips was to the Josie Music Awards in Tennessee, coined as the largest independent awards show in the world.
In 2018, she won Young Adult Artist of the Year, and in 2019 she took home Pop/Contemporary Rising Star of the Year. In 2019, she also attended the International Singer-Songwriter Awards in Atlanta, where she performed at the after show, and took home the award for International Female Rising Star of the Year; and in 2020 she won International Young Adult Artist of the Year, as well as the International Silver Music Video of the Year for her song “Exhale”! Her most recent trip to the United States was to record her song “Too Nice”, which was produced in Pennsylvania with Andrew Chervak from MIDNIGHT STUDIOS.
