Madeline Hawthorne Band at 830 North, Fort Collins — 3/10/2022

Madeline Hawthorne is a singer, songwriter, and performer from Bozeman, Montana, and she and her band are quickly becoming a welcome addition to the Colorado music scene. Hawthorne has joined forces with some of Colorado’s finest musicians and has been playing gigs up and down the front range as well as the mountain towns.

Born into a musical background, Hawthorne was early influenced by her parents, and once she started writing and playing guitar her future was clearly mapped out. She has an introspective writing style and lets the world around her determine her musical story. She has a blues foundation that lets her explore roots, soul, and rock with raw, uninhibited style.

Her band features Sean Macaulay on drums, Zach Jackson on bass, Al Smith on keyboards, Jacob Moss on lead guitar, and Cody Russell on pedal steel with Hawthorne on lead vocals and acoustic guitar. This unique combination of instruments allows the band to improvise and explore the music with three different solo opportunities presented by the guitar, pedal steel, and keyboards.

The set of mostly originals from Hawthorne’s solo album Boots and a few select covers was delivered with raw and emotional power from the band last night (Thursday, March 10) in Fort Collins at 830 North (yes, it’s a bowling alley). They are all brilliant players; combined with truthful ambitious songwriting and great stage presence, the overall vibe of the band is fantastic. The songs have cool soulful arrangements with keen vocals and expert musicianship. They blend the songs very well throughout the set by giving the audience a great assortment of musical styles.
