MADELEINE MCQUEEN REACHES FOR WATER IN “DESERT FLOWER”

With a powerful, soulful voice, Rochester’s Madeleine McQueen slices the space around her using her poetic lyrics to cauterize her disappointments and sorrows. Desert Flower comes from her new EP, “Wildfire”, with brutal honesty and a raw, quiet pandemonium, like a dream you dream over and over. Wild fears rest here, across the stream of water that McQueen wishes to cross. The glacial atmosphere rolls and swallows her whole and with her, the fabric of the desert she cannot cross. The easiest thing for the body is not always so for the mind. READ MORE...

Review: By Frank De Blase

Singer-songwriter Madeleine McQueen packs quite a wonderful wallop on her newest EP release, "Wildfire." You can hear her strength and resolve over the disc's entirety. McQueen has a heartbreaking belt and sustain, and here she sings spot-on and flexibly gentle with a voice that first caught me completely off guard at the Jazz Festival.

The arrangements of her songs stand up to her band's deft might, right down to the strum of her ukulele. The cut "Earth" features McQueen's voice plugged into multiple harmonies, like a chorus of Madeleine McQueens posing as impish angels. Her band is a rock band, no question, but it toes the line appropriately, allowing all the rise and fall and joy to come from McQueen. "Wildfire" satisfies, but could have used a few more tracks. You're gonna want seconds. READ MORE...

Each of the five tracks, with their own individual patterns and melodies, flow seamlessly in McQueen’s work. READ MORE...

ROC City Newspaper: CHOICE CONCERTS POP | Madeleine McQueen

"Okay ... where did this chick come from? Where did that voice come from? Madeleine McQueen projects spiritually and soulfully with a beguiling innocence and resolve over a bed of pop-rock splendor and sparkle. But it's far from fluffy; the songs are beautifully crafted and delivered. Proof: McQueen and her band, The Breeze, have recently dropped "Entangled," a pop-rock gem that moves from a whisper to a scream dynamically covering all points in between ... and of course there's that voice. Gave me goose bumps, man; goose bumps. Read more

BuffaBlog: Madeleine McQueen and the Breeze Release Impressive EP

"With nearly every city having a crowded folk scene, it takes a truly special talent to stand out; and that’s why we take the time to bring you, Rochester’s Madeleine McQueen and the Breeze. At the tail end of 2016, when the music blogosphere was busy compiling their top lists of 2015,  McQueen quietly released  her EP titled Entangled. While the sharp songwriting and mesmerizing vocals of her earlier release seem to continue to have grown, it’s the addition of the grand layered arrangements that help it stand out from the work of other local singer-songwriters." Read more

PlaylistPlay Artist Stories: Madeleine McQueen

"My parents never forced music on me when I was growing up. I had my little MP3 filled with pop tunes. I was very against “old people music” when I was a kid; this, to me, was John Mayer, Norah Jones, and Jack Johnson. My vein was more Nelly Furtado, Shakira, and Christina Aguilera." Read more
