Maddie & Jackie are a pop/rock duo hailing from Santa Cruz, CA. They play original music that they both have written, with Maddie as the lead vocalist, keyboardist, and rhythm guitarist and Jackie as the lead guitarist and vocalist. The two sisters have shared the stage in several bands together over the years; all of which have contributed to their colorful musical history to date.
They have recently been working with their friend, Ryan Loomis, who creates the beats for their songs and have been recording at a studio in Oakland with the legendary D-Wiz, who has worked with incredible artists such as Destiny's Child and En Vogue.
Maddie & Jackie have released two singles to date, which are titled "Up in the Clouds" and "Selfish" along with a Christmas single called "A Very Merry Christmas". There is a 5-song EP underway that is set to be released by the end of August 2020, which will include the first two singles.
Since COVID-19 has changed the music scene, Maddie & Jackie have been streaming performances online as well as performing live at local outdoor markets, most notably the West Coast Farmer's Markets in the Bay Area, CA. They now wear face masks while perfoming and practice social distancing to ensure the safety of their audience as well as their own safety. They also bring all of their own battery-powered equipment to avoid direct contact with promoters and venues.
