West Coast Beats: Indie Rocker Madeline Kenney


Raised in the Pacific Northwest, ​Madeline Kenney keeps a soil-tethered root to the natural world in her art.

A move to the Bay Area in 2013 plus a chance encounter with Chaz Bundick (Toro Y Moi) led to their collaborative recording of her ​Signals EP,​ followed by Kenney’s debut album, ​Night Night At The First Landing.​ Both works are marked by Kenney’s huge voice and unexpected lyrical knots.


In October 2018, Kenney released her sophomore work, ​Perfect Shapes​, with help from Jenn Wasner (Wye Oak). Dealing with subjects of femininity, societal pressures, expectation, value and self-worth, Kenney and Wasner presented a deeply collaborative work that resulted in a critically acclaimed moment of musical bravery and harmony.
