“The clarity of Maddie’s voice could very well be drifting out of a Greenwich Village folk club in the 1960’s. Maddie’s songs are political and deeply empathetic” - Edmonton Folk Fest

If you’ve ever seen the aurora borealis in Northern Alberta, you understand how it can be powerful, ethereal, and fluid all at once. Moving and surprising and alive. Maddie Storvold resembles that powerful phenomenon that often graces the skylines of the province from which she hails.

With the goal of “uniting the hippies and the cowboys” as Willie Nelson once did decades ago, Storvold is bursting into both the country and folk communities as a fresh voice of a new generation of storytellers. Recently, she won her episode of CTV’s The Launch, receiving the opportunity to record and release a country power ballad, “Don’t Say You Love Me”, written and produced by Bryan Adams. The single shot to #1 on the country charts in less than 3 hours, and peaked at #3 on the overall charts, surpassing Lady Gaga and Pink. The success of “Don’t Say You Love Me” was only perhaps matched by Adams’ and Storvold’s impromptu duet of “Baby When You’re Gone” during her audition.

A country artist with deep roots in folk protest and as a songwriter, Storvold was born in Cold Lake, AB, but raised a traveller, based in Dubai, U.A.E. She grew up as a nomad, playing music all over the world. Her background as a spoken word poet and a degree in Literature & Philosophy from Western University account for a poignant lyricism. With emotive fingerpicking, and a honeyed, impassioned voice, her music seeks to tell a story, to challenge us, and to touch a fragile part of the human spirit. As a live performer, Storvold has been described as having a "commanding stage presence, a quirky sense of humor, and a knack for capturing moments in song" (Vue Weekly). Tough and sweet like gravel in honey, she can make you laugh and cry, think and ache - all in the same hour.
