Madeline Leman and The Desert Swells will take you on a trip through 60s surf, 70s pop, and their unique brand of ‘Femmericana’ twang. Influenced by Bonnie Raitt and Patsy Cline, Madeline captivates audiences with stories of strong women who ramble their way through the mundane and the profound. The Desert Swells will be performing songs from their debut album Nobody’s Fool, a collection of Americana classics, that together present as Leman’s own feminist manifesto. Featuring the vocals of Leah Senior, her band creates the perfect backdrop of 1970s women’s lib-nostalgia met head on with a fresh take on country songwriting. Leman’s strong vocals and playful pop sentiment provide a powerful listening experience that will move both body and mind.
