604 Records Announces Newest Signing Madisyn Gifford | Alley Cat PR
|GIFFORD’S DEBUT SINGLE “WITHOUT YOU” SET FOR RELEASE OCTOBER 23|
| October 8, 2020 (Vancouver, BC) – Canada’s premier indie label 604 Records has become known for launching some of the country’s top talent such as Carly Rae Jepsen, Mariana’s Trench, and Dallas Smith. Today, they introduce a distinctive new voice to the pop sphere with their newest signing, Madisyn Gifford. Creating a stunning soundscape with airy yet arresting vocals and enveloping lyricism, Gifford will be releasing her debut single “Without You” on October 23.|
“The first time I heard her voice, I was floored. Her voice is simply arresting,” states the president of 604 Records, Jonathan Simkin. “There is something so unique about her voice. It’s the tone, but it is also the emotional resonance that she packs into every note. It was the voice that first caught my attention. But then when I heard her original material, and discovered she is also an incredible songwriter, I was sold! She has a real mystical vibe to her, reminiscent of Stevie Nicks, and other iconic female singers. I feel very lucky to be working with her, and look forward to what the future holds!“
Continuing the excitement, Gifford notes, “I remember being fifteen and looking online at different record labels one night and something just stuck out to me about 604 Records. I think I just immediately had it in my brain that it was the place I needed to be!” She continues, “When I got the offer I was over the moon excited! It felt like such a full circle and rewarding moment for me. My experience so far with 604 has been nothing short of spectacular. I feel as though I am a part of this supportive and amazing family that really treat their artists with such love and respect.“
The 19-year-old songwriter has been singing as long as she’s been talking, but even that can’t fully account for the transcendent quality showcased on her debut. Musically and lyrically, it’s a captivating and compelling union of innocence and experience that can completely wrap its listener. And as alluring as her vivacious indie-folk sound and vocal prowess may be, Gifford is equally as adept as a lyricist, cleverly and creatively delving into the formative experiences of transitioning into her early 20s.
With the forthcoming release of “Without You,” Gifford will quickly prove that she is a force to reckon with in Canada’s rising pop scene. Working with acclaimed producer Colin Janz, “Without You” is merely a fragment of the striking collection of music Gifford will be releasing over the next year.
