"I want to find a truth that resonates," Maddock says of his new work, and we are better for his efforts. While Another Life, which is a collection of pop gems, luscious ballads, and rootsy Americana, is not entirely autobiographical, its arrangements and overall execution feel so intimate that it functions as such. Throughout Another Life, Maddock employs his soulful delivery and poetic lyricism in a deeply reflective collection of songs that refuse to be anything but sincere and honest, which is a refreshing change from a contemporary musical landscape infused with irony and bitter wit.
Maddock has brought together an incredible team including multi-instrumentalists Tony Scherr and Larry Campbell and producer Matt Pierson to create Another Life, released in the summer of 2013. The album, funded entirely on fan pledges and support, is the culmination of his new birth and subsequent maturation as a solo artist, which is what makes the new album's title so apropos. He has been given one of the greatest compliments a musician could receive – a raving review by "Idiot's Delight" founder and free-form radio legend, Vin Scelsa, who called Maddock's work "heartbreakingly beautiful and exquisitely crafted...touches the soul."
New Jersey-based singer-songwriter Michaela McClain opens the show!
