FFM’s friend, singer songwriter Maddy Carty, has a very powerful message this summer. Relationships are supposed to be an equal partnership, aren’t they? Well, if the lyrics in ‘Shout The Loudest’ resonate with you, perhaps you should take a leaf out of Maddy’s book, sit your partner down and tell ’em how it’s going to be.
South London-born singer-songwriter Maddy Carty is an ex-BRIT School student who went on to study at Leeds College of Music. After graduating, she headed back to London to form her own band, and record her debut album, Come And Get It.
Drawing her inspiration from artists such as Tracy Chapman, India.Arie and Van Morrison, Maddy writes all her own material.
She has supported Norman Jay and Madness at House of Fun Festival, played The Brooklyn Bowl with Maxi Priest and performed at venues such as Ronnie Scott’s, The Troubadour and The Scoop for More London Festivals.
Maddy’s first album, ‘Come and Get It’ has received support from Radio 1xtra, BBC6 and BBC London amongst many others. Her new feature track ‘Got No Love’ has been championed by Mistajam and DJ Target on Radio 1.
Maddy is now writing for others as well as working on her new project and the first single ‘Same Way’ is out now.
“Fantastic, great sound. Well done girl!”
Robert Elms BBCLondon
“A strikingly sophisticated and self contained talent Maddy Carty’s commanding yet delicate vocal is serviced by original songs of depth and commitment.”
Gavin Martin, Music Journalist
“Sickeningly talented – and using her gifts to make the world seem just a little bit fairer.”
Ian McCann, Record Collector Magazine
“Love her voice, love her song!”
David Rodigan BBC1xtra
The other evening, I had the great privilege of meeting Maddy Carty and was instantly struck by her engaging and powerful message. Hailing from the same camp as Amy Winehouse, Adele and Jessie J (the Brit School) Maddy Carty is an equally phenomenal talent. Like many of Maddy’s generation, she is able to see through the blatant lies and glaring stupidity of this current Conservative government.
