Artist Of The Week

Madyx is the brainchild of 24-year-old singer/songwriter and guitarist Michelle Blanchard. Originally from Las Vegas but based in Los Angeles, Madyx has been described as a mix of P!nk and Katy Perry, with influences ranging from Brody Dalle of The Distillers to Melissa Etheridge. She has recorded with Grammy-nominated producer Brian Howes (Daughtry, Simple Plan) in Los Angeles and the result was 2015’s Worth The Risk EP. The following year, Madyx won UMA’s Best International Music Video for “Some Kisses,” which is featured on the “Ones To Watch” playlist on every 2017 British Airways flight. Last summer Madyx released the anthem “Where The Wild Things Are,” which was written by Madyx along with the award winning, multi-Platinum selling Swedish songwriter and producer, Carl Ryden (Bruno Mars, Kylie Minogue, Benny Benassi), who also produced the track. The song was featured on Asia Pop 40, across 28 radio markets in Asia, with host Dom Lau (former Channel V VJ and E! News Asia). “Where The Wild Things Are” is also featured in New Form Digital’s fantasy thriller Immortals, created by and starring YouTube sensation Alexa Losey. In addition, she’s co-written with The Nexus (James Bay, Lana Del Rey). Madyx has returned with one of her strongest songs to date via the single “Bad Decisions.”
