Madeline Adams hails from the musically inspired town of Athens, GA. Athens has been the birthplace of many bands, including R.E.M. and the B52s. Madeline has been doing her thing since the young age of 15, and self-released her first album, Kissing and Dancing, just 2 years into her career. White Flag is Madeline’s third full-length album.

In addition to Madeline’s unique voice, this album showcases guitar, piano and violin, all of which are great additions to Madeline’s unique lyrics. Telephone Daydream is one of my favorite songs on the album. It has a bit of a ragtime feel to it; a bit retro, but fun to listen to! You Can’t Break My Heart is also a fun tune -- how can you go wrong with lyrics like "champagne flowing from my spectacles?"

Overall, I give White Flag 4 sponges. This album has a real unique sound that you don’t come across very often these days. Madeline’s different voice and song-writing style are something to be admired in this very commercial, sometimes (or often times, depending on your tastes) unoriginal musical world we live in.
