Madeley blends originality with homage to take aim at the current state of play. Wrapped up in his hypnotic, laid-back, Neil Young meets Jamie T style, are pressing and serious issues of present-day alienation, loneliness, and mistrust. His voice is the perfect vehicle for these reflections, resulting in songs that offer as much refuge as they do commentary.
Off the back of his debut EP, "21st Century Witch Hunt”, released on Nice Swan Records in 2020, Madeley has received critical acclaim from the likes of DIY, Dork, So Young, Mark Riley (BBC 6 Music), Huw Stephens (Radio 1) and John Kennedy (Radio X); the latter citing his work as ‘sophisticated, robust song writing from someone at such infancy in their career’ (X-Posure).
His debut UK headline tour culminated in a sold-out show at London’s Shacklewell Arms and Birmingham's The Sunflower Lounge. Now Madeley returns to announce a new UK headline tour for February 2023 ahead of the release of his highly anticipated upcoming sophomore EP set for 1st February 2023. The title track ‘Nothing Is Sacred (Anymore)’ is out now on all streaming platforms via TWBB.
