Madyx is the brainchild of 23-year-old singer/songwriter and guitarist Michelle Blanchard. She relocated from Las Vegas to Los Angeles at age 16, initially seeking success through the rock band Life Down Here. That group's debut album, The Beginning, was produced by Jay Baumgardner (Evanescence, Drowning Pool, Papa Roach) and won the group many fans…but Michelle's tastes were evolving. As a writer for The Examiner noted, "Madyx is the culmination of modern rock's lack of new horizons and the growing appreciation Michelle has for the Top 40 style music that incorporates all her musical tastes." Described as a mix of P!nk and Katy Perry, with influences ranging from Brody Dalle of The Distillers to Melissa Etheridge, Michelle's genuine and honest lyrics, combined with the pop/dance/alternative style of production, is the perfect mix for today's music lover.

Madyx isn't just a brand new name or persona with some new next wave music; it's Michelle comfortable in her own skin, sharing her experiences with the world in hopes to help others.

Explaining the change in direction, Michelle notes, "The music in me changes as I change and grow as an artist. That's what I think is so cool about music, it's never the same...it is always changing and part of being in the music business is making that change work for you, however you may see it fit."

When people hear Madyx, she wants them to remember and relate to the raw emotion that she puts into each and every song. Madyx has a vision and a message that she puts out in everything that she touches as an artist.

Social media is a huge part of her everyday life; it's the only that she stays connected with her fans while she's in the studio, on tour or just in every day life. The best part of social media is that fans aren't just fans they all become friends and follow her not to just see what she's doing musically, but what's going on in her life overall.

Madyx has recorded with Grammy-nominated producer Brian Howes (Daughtry, Simple Plan) in Los Angeles.

The "Some Kisses" single, Remix EP and new EP Worth The Risk are now available at digital retailers worldwide.
