Madeline Ann Day known as Maddy Day finally has her debut disc ready to share with the world on her self-titled Madeline Ann cd. Day offers clear, quiet vocals, guitar and percussion. Producer Dan Vaillancourt covers bass and percussion and Paul Friensen-Carper is cellist.

This album of Day’s nine original songs with ever so sparse arrangements offers a quiet entry into her young heart. She seems to have a handle on what’s most important in life, as evidenced with her lyrics on with Your Intoxication:  “Ohh, you better stand back / cause when you’re around / I can’t breathe to save my life / I go weak / weak in my knees / Even though I know you’ll leave / leave me / Your intoxication is overwhelming / infuriating and aggravating me / Your intoxicant captivating / So why don’t you leave? / Why don’t I want you to leave?” A tale told as only a wise teenage lover can describe.

Stolen Heart” offers the telling chorus; “Years ago you stole my heart and you still haven’t given it back / Once you break it, you buy it / And that’s a fact” with an expected twist at the end proving all facts can change. Love is her primary motivation as a songwriter.

The song “Everywhere” is an exercise in empathy of her mourning cousin who lost her husband; “He’s everywhere in this house / haunting me like a tortured soul / Caught between heaven and hell / He’s is everywhere in this house / He’s in the books he used to read to me / He’s in his guitar that’s still here / He used to play sweet music for me / Why did the music stop?” Learning that letting go doesn’t mean one loves the deceased less is a lesson many far older need to learn.

Maddy Day has a future that looks and sounds much brighter than loss and mere puppy or summer loves. This debut offers listeners her toolkit into a pop folk sound that’s nearly smooth jazz.

I look forward to whatever may intoxicate Maddy Day next!
