"Take My Time"



Madeleine Roger is a contemporary folksinger from Winnipeg, Canada. While accompanying herself on acoustic guitar in multiple tunings, it is her artistry as a songwriter that can silence a room, uniting her captivating voice with vivid lyricism and a maturity beyond her years. A former thespian and a lifelong traveler, she is prone to absorbing stories and questioning the way that things are, creating songs with imaginative melodies and honesty that bares truths about being alive.

Madeleine co-produced and co-engineered her debut album Cottonwood (out Oct. 26) with Lloyd Peterson (The Wailin' Jennys, The Weakerthans, James Keelaghan) at Paintbox Recording in Winnipeg. The album was proudly made with gender parity - half of the producing, audio engineering, musicians, and other artists identify as female. Written from Madeleine’s home in Winnipeg MB, and in a woodstove-heated cabin that her great-grandparents built in the Manitoba backwoods, Cottonwood combines the elegant storytelling of folk traditions with the grounded vibe of roots music. The album portrays her intuitive creativity; reflections on femininity and equality, the majesty of the wilderness, and the beautiful awkwardness of trying to love another person.

For the last three years, Madeleine has been appearing often in the folk/roots duo Roger Roger with her twin brother Lucas, performing at music festivals and stages across Canada and Europe (The Winnipeg Folk Festival, Summerfolk Festival, The Calgary Folk Club, Campbell Bay Music Festival, etc), and sung as a musical guest on CBC Radio's DNTO in support of their debut album Fairweather which reached the No. 1 spot on the Canadian national folk/roots/blues charts and accolades overseas, garnering acclaim for its exceptional songwriting.
