Maddy Rodriguez has been singing since she was a young girl and started writing songs when she was 13. Her sound is part Pop and part Country. She credits musical influences like James Taylor, Elton John and Bread as well as Contemporary Country artists like Keith Urban, the Dixie Chicks, Shania Twain and Taylor Swift. At 15 years old, Maddy auditioned for Disband (a MuchMusic hit show) and was selected from among 1,000 bands/artists to be part of the 13 artists featured in season 2. She went on to release her first EP entitled “As Seen On Disband” with acoustic versions of her songs “Summer Love,” “Happier Than Ever” and “Break Down." In November 2010, a few weeks before her 17th birthday, she signed an administration/co-publishing deal with Nettwerk One Publishing, one of Canada's most respected music publishing companies. She'll be releasing her first single (which she co-wrote) and music video, "Falling Up", this month. Maddy will be performing at Canadian Music Week's Canadian Music Fest (in Toronto) from March 9th to the 13th.
