MADAME MAYHEM released her new single “I Am More” to all digital platforms! The single was co-written by Madame Mayhem and Keith Wallen (of Breaking Benjamin).
“I Am More” is very much about self empowerment, standing up for yourself and telling the world not to underestimate you. It’s a song that really gives confidence. We are all stronger than we know” says Madame Mayhem.
She adds, “This song is so personal for me. When I perform it, all the frustration, emotion and attitude that flowed through me when writing it comes right back. Writing with Keith Wallen is always a pleasure, and this song came about so seamlessly, it really was like telling a true life story about how I was feeling. Having my mentor Billy Sheehan (Mr. Big, Winery Dogs, Sons of Apollo) playing bass on this track made it even more special and added to the awesomeness of the groove in this song.”
Those who yearn for the electric catharsis of loud guitars, driving rhythms, hypnotic
hooks, and the strength of shared experience have a new muse in Madame Mayhem.
The Manhattan born singer/songwriter takes charge of her own anxiety, hurt, and alienation, crushing it with sheer force of will, then channeling the remaining ether into pulse-pounding anthems, instantly connecting with anyone who has struggled.
She’s shared stages with Sevendust, Memphis May Fire, Fozzy, Nonpoint and Doro. Across three exceedingly well-received albums – Ready for Me (2017), Now You Know (2015), and White Noise (2012) – Madame Mayhem worked with Russ “Satchel” Parrish (Steel Panther), Corey Lowery (Seether), Ron “Bumblefoot” Thal (ex-Guns N’ Roses), and Troy McLawhorn (Evanescence) to name just a few. Her 2019 single “Broken” was co-written with Keith Wallen (Breaking Benjamin) and features her longtime friends and collaborators Billy Sheehan (Mr. Big, Winery Dogs, Sons of Apollo) and Ray Luzier (Korn). “Breaking Down”, which Madame Mayhem co-wrote with Brian Vodinh (10 Years) and also produced by Johnny K, was released in 2020. She once again collaborated with Keith Wallen for the February 2021 single release of “Cruel Heart”. This song was produced and arranged by Johnny K (Disturbed, Megadeth, Sevendust, Finger Eleven). The current release, “I Am More” is already getting rave reviews. Written By Madame Mayhem and Keith Wallen, produced by Johnny K and includes Keith on guitar, Billy Sheehan on bass and Jason “JBomb” Harrison on the drums.
Her music has taken her into some of the world’s best-known venues, like B.B. King Blues Club in New York, The Roxy in Hollywood, and a Grammy week stint at Nashville’s Bluebird Café, to name just a few. Loudwire premiered her “Ready for Me” music video. She’s garnered very positive press in Revolver and Guitar World. The buzz has spread overseas as well, demonstrated by profiles in long-running tastemaker publications like Rock Hard, Aardschok, and Metal Hammer magazine.
As the fashion press observed, the look is the medium and the music is the message. The self-expression inherent in goth and glam are just more colors on Madame Mayhem’s artistic palette. Black eyeliner and black leather; pink lips and sharp spikes; it’s part of an arsenal as timeless as the New York Dolls or The Runaways.
There’s no escaping the darkness. Life is full of unpleasant surprises. Real and imagined disasters, from outside forces and from within, threaten at every turn. But those who learn to control and command the chaos will triumph. This rock n’ roll badass invites each audience to become the Madame of their own Mayhem. As ASX declared, “She’s aggressive, outrageous, and operatic… And she’s ready for you.”
