Madysin Hatter is an up and coming Rock musician who has recently released two great singles. ‘Treasure’ and earlier ‘Wild & Strange’ show the great talent Madysin has and the way she delivers her own style of energetic Rock infused with classic Rock influences.
We had the pleasure to chat with Madysin Hatter and ask her about her new songs and her plans and other things.
Hello Madysin. I’m very happy to chat with you. How are you doing?
I’m doing well, hope things are good with you!
For our readers who are yet to hear your music, how would you describe your sound and style?
My music is Rock/Pop, heavy on the Classic Rock influences for sure.
You released the single Treasure in mid-2021 and Wild & Strange earlier this year. Are you planning to release any new singles soon or even a bigger release like an album or EP?
We’ve been recording a couple of new songs to be released as singles. Keep an eye out in the coming months. Some time in the winter, if all goes to plan.
Treasure is a softer and slower form of Rock with some classic influences while Wild & Strange is much faster and energetic. Going on with your career, do you plan on keeping this variety in your music?
Definitely! I love playing with the full gamut of emotions. And I treat each song as its own thing– the music is meant to serve the message of the song. If a song feels like it should be uptempo and more aggressive, I’ll go all out in that direction. If a song is more introspective, the music should suit and support that vibe. As an artist (and as a human!), I’m constantly learning and evolving. My music reflects that, so you can expect a slightly different sound with each release. I’m excited to share the next batch of songs!
In order to get to know you better, and to have some fun, how about we play a game? I will give you a certain scenario in an alternate universe and you will have to react. Ready?
Love it. Yes.
In a universe where you’re the ruler of a country, what would be an interesting law you’d make?
Everyone would be required by law to spend thirty minutes a day (minimum) doing something creative they love. At work, people take a lunch break. Everyone should also take a creative break. For me, I find when I carve out the time to flex my creativity, I’m all around more focused, productive, and content. I believe in the benefits of following a passion and think it would help reconnect our society. There’s also something empowering about making something creative for yourself– making something because you love it. Making something that speaks to your soul and fulfils you. Everyone should make the time every single day.
In a universe where humans are born with superpowers related to their personalities, what would your superpower be?
My superpower would probably be Energy. Which is cool, but I’d LOVE the superpower to control Time. I feel like I’m always running out of it. Would love to get a better handle on that in real life.
In a universe where music is illegal and for every album you own, digital or hardcopy, you’d have to spend one year in jail, how long would be sentenced for?
I’d have to move universes.
In a universe where the currency is the person’s sense of humour, how rich would you be?
A gazillionaire. I’m from the east coast and have a very dry sense of humor. So even when I’m not joking…I am. I also don’t take myself too seriously, so I’m always down for some self-deprecation.
In a universe where aliens have launched research about Earth’s music and asked you for 3 songs to help them understand it, what 3 songs would you give them?
Wow! That’s a major question, and I don’t know how to answer that for all of Earth! For me personally, I can list three songs that rocked my world the first time I heard them (although there are way more than three). While this isn’t a list of my three favorite songs, it’s a tiny snippet of a bigger list of songs that made me stop in my tracks when I heard them for the first time. “Walk This Way” (Aerosmith). “Baby One More Time” (Britney Spears). “Runaway” (Del Shannon).
In a universe where the senses of taste and hearing are mixed up, what food would your music taste like?
A burger and fries with lots of ketchup, and a side of ice cream for dessert. Chocolate chip mint.
Thank you for playing, Madysin!
What is one music-related memory from your childhood that means a lot to you?
Before I fell in love with rock music, I was obsessed with musical theatre (still am!). My mom took me to see my first Broadway show when I was five or six. It was Cats, and I quickly became obsessed. I remember playing the cassette tape of the Cats cast recording at the kitchen table and making my little toy figurines dance around as if it were a stage.
Do you remember the first time you performed in front of a live audience? How did it feel?
Yes! I’ve been performing since I was very young. My first dance recital was when I was two. I loved dancing and loved the costume, so I was very happy to perform! I have always loved performing, it’s a thrill! There’s nothing like it in the world.
Have you ever been treated in a sexist manner? How would you have sexism and what advice would you give to young people who deal with any kind of discrimination?
I would guess that most women in any profession would answer “yes” to that question. But I do believe that we as a society are making progress. My advice would be to not give a f*ck what anyone thinks of you– someone else’s opinion of you does not matter. The only opinion of you that matters is the one you have of yourself. And if someone treats you a certain way, it’s a reflection of them– not you. Discrimination has no place. We are all here, and we are all worthy of being here. Embrace who you are and be proud of yourself. Be proud of others who are trying their best. Support and uplift one another, and be kind. The mindset of “competition” is a detriment. There’s room for everybody.
