About Maddie Storvold
Raised in Dubai, Maddie Storvold grew up travelling and playing music around the world, and is now a member of the Edmonton music community. Maddie’s poetic background and Bachelor of Arts degree in English from Western University account for her poignant lyricism. Her debut LP The Old Brag Of My Heart was recorded in bathrooms, basements, tree houses, and kitchens, seeking to capture an authentic and unedited unique experience.
Maddie has spent her summers touring and playing festivals including the Edmonton Folk Fest, Canmore Folk Fest, and Tiny Lights. The young folk singer released her second full-length album Freedom, Books, Flowers & The Moon in December 2018.
