I’m Madi Mai. I’ve been surrounded by people passionate about music my entire life, and this has nurtured my own love for music. My own passion began to show when I started writing songs as a child. Since then, I have taught myself to play a range of instruments, including the ukulele, keyboard and guitar. Now that I am 18, my love of music is ever growing. I’ve been able to experiment with a wide variety of looks and sounds, mostly taking inspiration from alternative styles. When I first started to make my own music, I was heavily influenced by a range of artists - from rock artists like Iron Maiden and Green Day, to the softer melodies of Lana Del Rey and Keane - and these are artists which are still important to me today. Through my work I aim to spread awareness for mental health, learning difficulties and other people affected by non-physical limitations - as someone who themselves is autistic, these are issues that are close to my heart. I love to perform my music live and am currently taking every opportunity I can to do so!
