Dave Madden’s choruses are so catchy, you won’t want them to end. Inseperable from the Live Music Capital, Madden has been recognized as one of Austin’s most prolific songwriters. In 2010 his pop-rock double album Open-Eyed and Broken Wide earned Madden the award for Best Austin Music Record and in 2013 Madden was named Best Music Arranger at the AMP Austin Music Industry Awards. In addition to multi-instrumentalist composing as a “musician’s musician,” Madden’s live funk-jazz performances have produced contagious energy at venues ranging from Antone’s to the State Capitol, all captured on 2011’s Live From Austin.
Lately Madden has been working on recording and composing in the studio, both for himself and for hire. Dave Madden’s next performance is October 31st at The Carpenter’s Hall. Until then you can stream some of his tunes right here at KUTX!
