We've been following Maddy's journey into the music industry since she was on Much Music's Disband. It is so refreshing to hear a young new Canadian artist that doesn't need the help of studio dubbing to mask her real voice. Her lyrics are genuine and we love that track #12 was sung in spanish...absolutely beautiful. We will continue to follow this rising star and look forward to this and other albums from her. We see Juno's and Grammy's coming her way!!

On her debut independent record, Don't Be A Stranger, Maddy Rodriguez shares her musical and personal life with a 12-song set of acoustic guitar based, country/pop that dwells on meeting every challenge and transition in life ' large or small ' head on and without regret. In fact, the title track, the final song written for the record, is about a major transition Maddy was making during the recording process, graduating from high school and saying goodbye to some of her closest friends. 'For the title track to be a song dedicated to my friends was perfect. It sums up the record and where I am right now.'

Don't be a Stranger depends heavily on Rodriguez' substantial songwriting chops and her ability to make her point simply and eloquently. While she clearly possesses ample vocal chops, Rodriguez' performances are never showy. In every case ' from upbeat tracks like lead single 'Don't Play With My Heart' to ballads like 'Go On And Leave', she always takes care to serve the song. Rodriguez also shows remarkable depth as a storyteller. Her lyrics are a fluid blend of hopeful innocence, unvarnished truth and simple wisdom that, frankly, songwriters with far more life experience and studio time behind them might struggle to achieve.

The album reads like a scrapbook, each song a snapshot of the various challenges and triumphs she and her friends have experienced while growing up ' from heartbreaks to mean girls to crushes to absent fathers. She may be very young, but Rodriguez' take on love and loss is truly universal; a candid examination of situations we've all found ourselves in, and of emotions felt just as deeply by young and old alike.
