‘Kathryn’ by Madison Steinbruck | New Album, ‘Australia’s Lonelier’
Exclusive track premiere of ‘Kathryn’ by Nashville-based singer/songwriter Madison Steinbruck, taken from the upcoming album, ‘Australia’s Lonelier.’
Her upcoming album is a bold tale of betrayal and loss of trust. Melancholic, guitar-driven melodies are paired with rock-influenced drums and cutting lyrics. Madison’s vocals, which delicately balance an alternative edge with southern influence, set her apart from other artists as she sings, “And I hate that I’ll never see your face/ and that I loved you so deep.”
Originally from Corpus Christi, Texas, Madison has been writing songs since she was 5 years old. A move to Nashville brought opportunity as a performer, and fed her passion. Before the pandemic she moved to Australia, where she took piano lessons and spent time writing Australia’s Lonelier. The album was recorded at East Nashville’s Bomb Shelter. ‘Kathryn’ was written prior to her Australian trip, was resurrected from a demo made with her brother, and quickly found its rightful place as a featured track on the coming of age record.
Madison Steinbruck’s songs aim to encompass the duality of loneliness and despair, loss and love, the beauty of life and its unavoidable tragedies. She balances the complexity of emotions with poetic lines and moving sonics.
