Describing herself as a “Rock ’n’ Roll glitter princess,” Maddy Wood combines her love for the classic rock sounds of Led Zeppelin and Stevie Nicks with modern pop sensibilities, soulful vocals and thought-provoking lyrics. However, this self-made artist should not be confused with any old rockstar — Wood’s most appealing aspect is how she grows beyond the boundaries of her idols.
Wood effortlessly dances through myriad genres to create a sound that is soulful, energetic, and all her own. Crafted in the pages of a songwriting notebook and perfected on the strings of her DIY custom-made purple cheetah print Telecaster, every Maddy Wood piece is original as it is beautiful. Her process is a raw, sometimes painful, but ultimately deeply relatable one, and with it, she produces songs that capture listeners from the start.
Poetic and dressed in purple, this 21-year-old singer-songwriter is well on her way to joining the ranks of fearless, no-nonsense icons like Phoebe Bridgers and Maggie Rogers. Bending to no one, Maddy Wood channels her emotions unapologetically as she forges her own path.
Despite maintaining almost 500,000 streams on her break-out piece, “Too Old to Play Pretend,” Wood’s music career has just begun, and listeners can be sure of more driving and impassioned music on the way.
