Hit a High Note With Our September Babe
"Lead with love, enjoy the process, and don’t be afraid to show the world what you have to offer - whether or not it’s 'perfect'!"
Meet our September Babe, LA-based singer-songwriter Madi Rindge. The 24-year old stunner is not your typical aspiring pop artist. Madi was born in Los Angeles and raised in the music industry. At 18, she enrolled in NYU as a music major. There, she furthered her passion for writing and recording. After graduation, she moved back to LA to pursue her singing career full time. Since then, Madi has been spending her time recording, writing, touring her new music, and trying the best coffee shops in LA, of course. ;)
I was lucky enough to sit down with Madi and chat one on one about her passions, struggles, and, more importantly, her suggestions on where to score the best latte around town! Get the inside scoop about Madi below...
Tell us a little bit about your intro into the music industry?
My dad is a Grammy Award-winning violinist and my mom is on the business side so I’ve been so lucky to experience what tour is like and how much hard work it takes to really make it in this industry. At 2 years old I was performing and learning to play piano so I’ve been doing it for many years now and am so happy to be continuing! I absolutely love it and feel like it’s in my blood to connect with people through performing.
What inspired you to pursue a career as a full time artist?
Singing and writing initially were my ways of sharing my ‘voice’. It became therapeutic especially during a time that was really tumultuous and difficult for me, which was when my parents decided to divorce. I was 12 years old and didn’t feel like I could talk about how I was feeling through it, so I turned to songwriting and singing.
What has been your biggest struggle/accomplishment being an artist?
My biggest struggle as an artist has been my need for perfection - in sound, in aesthetic. And though it can be a positive thing, I’ve been working really hard on caring less about perfection, following my heart and enjoying the process. My biggest accomplishment so far would probably be reaching close to half a million streams on one of my singles on Spotify, or hearing my music on the radio!
What advice could give advice to other women looking to pursue a career in music?
I would say to pursue exactly what it is you love. Lead with love, enjoy the process, and don’t be afraid to show the world what you have to offer - whether or not it’s “perfect”!
Name your three favorite artists right now!
Right now I’ve been listening to a lot of Kehlani, Marc E. Bassy, and Sabrina Claudio!
If you had to pick another career, other than entertainment, what would you do? Why?
If I lived an entirely different life I’d be in the CIA! It seems so fun to solve problems and have to think outside the box to get to the answer.
Tell us your ultimate hope/dream for your future…
My absolute dream is to be a successful world touring recording artist, headlining my own tour, collaborating with some of my favorite artists. Eventually I’d love to own and operate a fashion line and act in feature films. Ultimately I just want to be happy and enjoying every minute of it!
In your words, what is a “Babe With Coffee”
A babe with coffee, is a #girlboss ;) A lady with confidence, who practices self love and forgiveness and who loves to try new places and make new connections with people they share their space with!
Anything else you want to add?!
I am so excited to be working with a female-focused company who finds female empowerment just as important as I do. Let’s lift some spirits and change the game for women!!! xoxo
THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR BEING OUR BABE!
