We had the good fortune of connecting with Madelynn Shae and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Madelynn, can you walk us through the thought-process of starting your business?
My thought process was very quick, I always wanted to do this as a career. Through out the years i was pushed in different directions, but something about the year of 2021 sealed the deal for me. I went through a very painful breakup, and that break up was the push I needed to start my career. A experience that was so difficult for me to move past brought me so much confidence and connections with people that i will always be grateful for.

Please tell us more about your work. We’d love to hear what sets you apart from others, what you are most proud of or excited about. How did you get to where you are today professionally. Was it easy? If not, how did you overcome the challenges? What are the lessons you’ve learned along the way. What do you want the world to know about you or your brand and story?
What sets me apart from others, that’s a hard one! I would have to say it’s how I create my songs! I can write anywhere, and I find inspiration in the smallest things! My favorite part of the music is the story behind the words. I believe that I connect best with my audience if they can feel where I’m at in my life and what I felt in that moment! I think that’s super special! I am so proud of what I accomplished. I’ve taken something that everyone goes through in life and turned it into something that I’ll cherish forever. I am so happy I did and decided to chase my dreams! I still have to pinch myself that my music is out for everyone to hear! I am so excited for what the future holds! The story behind this EP and the deciding factor to start this journey was a breakup. Some might say, hey that’s crazy, but it is true! I was in a long-term relationship that I believed would last forever, and when it ended, I was broken. I was sad often and I cried often. I always had a dream of having a career in music and I took those feelings and poured them into my piano and created this EP. Some told me the feelings would pass and the heartbreak would fade, but nothing helped more than communicating those feelings through songs that could help the next. I never had the courage or the confidence in myself to start my musical career, but something about this heartbreaking moment gave me the power I needed to take it on!

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
There is so much to do in Dallas! My favorite things to do in the Dallas area has to be watching the Dallas Cowboys, I love the area around the stadium! I am also a Texas Rangers fan and would definitely take a tour around the ballpark! There are so many cute little shops in the Downtown area so that’s a must!

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
I want to thank my family, my family has constantly supported my journey! My friends and my audience thank you a million times for being my biggest fans!! I wouldn’t be where I’m at without the love and support you’ve given me! A special thank you to my God Mother Kristi Engstrom and my Mother Beth Biron for finding the right people that helped me start the journey i am on today! I am truly grateful! My biggest support is my boyfriend Tyler, I would never have come close to chasing my dreams if it wasn’t for you. The encouragement you give, the love I receive pushes me to be the best artist I can be.
