About the event


After making three albums with his friends in a previous band, Archie & The Bird Brains, Nick decided to start making
a body of solo music that was uplifting, and soulful.  He wrote a full length album, employing Joshua Emerson (Keys/Producer) Jared Jacknow (Drums) and Arron (Bass) to help him record and play it.  At first the task of paying for the project seemed daunting, but where there’s a will there’s a way.  Nick spent several months aboard a tiny fishing boat off the coast of bitter cold Alaska to fund, and partially inspire the new songs.  Now that he’s back in town it’s all ice cream and rock shows, and the McDonalds ice cream machine is down.


The Madeleines began as an experiment in the palette of wistful, heart-tugging folk music. After a limited release
in 2021 of folk arrangements of their favorite indie songs, Karen Laws (voice) and Michael Richardson (guitar) expanded their ambitions to incorporate the sound of a full band, more eclectic sonic influences, and a full-length album; The Old Man The Boat was self-released in August 2022, featuring Joichaun Taylor (drums), Sean Hynes (keyboards), Kyle Russo of Little Pants (bass), and Sawyer Camden of Padfoot (bass) playing with Laws and Richardson. The album was
featured on the front page of Bandcamp, and received positive attention. The Madeleines continue to grow in sound, and can be heard experimenting with jazz and post-rock in their sets of indie rock and folk as they perform in the Washington, DC area and Virginia Beach.


Washington DC based six piece band that plays R&B, Pop, and Country Jams smoother than the protein smoothie you gave up on two days into your 2022 resolution.
