Those who have just met Maddie might describe her as shy and unassuming, but put a guitar in her hand and the Berklee College of Music graduate is anything but quiet. These days, EMG pickups are an integral part of Maddie’s sound and setup, whether she’s touring internationally with Korean pop star Taeyang, rocking out with New York based Drew of the Drew or racking up studio time with numerous other East Coast artists. Maddie’s guitar playing speaks to her wide range of musical interests, blending thoughtful lyricism with a strong sense of groove and guitar driven rock.
"As a sideman for hire/ session guitarist, versatility is where it’s at as far as my setup goes- I need to be able to whip out any sound at any time. My EMG 57s get me everything from sparkly chorused cleans, to classic crunch and truly heavy overdrive, while switching over to my SAVs gives me that authentic strat bounce. The ACS I’ve got in my Blueridge makes live acoustic gigs a piece of cake."
