Madness Blooms

Madness Blooms is an indie duo hovering at the intersection of folk, pop, and rock.

Madness Blooms is an indie duo hovering at the intersection of folk, pop, and rock. Their unique, memorable sound blends lush vocal harmonies with full-voiced acoustic tracks and electronic beats; rich, strong bass supports it all. The group had its origins in a recurring open mic night that Bradford King used to run in a bookstore. Meghan Sinoff, pathological bibliophile, came for the books, but stayed (and returned again and again) for the music. Often one of them would jump in to sing harmony while the other was performing. From the bliss of their joined voices, and in mutual admiration of each other’s songwriting, they formed Madness Blooms.

The voices in Meghan’s head have always sung madness; in the last few years, they've become so urgent that she’s offered them her own tongue and fingers to perform in public. Other musical projects include songwriting with kids at 826 Seattle and playing oldies for the elderly at various assisted living facilities in the Seattle area. She eats no meat except the flesh of her enemies.

The madness of music was planted into Bradford’s head by a tenor sax player in the London underground at age 11. Bradford has pursued the muse off and on from high school to college jazz band; to being a singing gondolier; to becoming part of a small Portland opera collaborative led by the late Ralph Wells; to his first classic rock cover band started in a garage in Everett, WA in 2008. In 2009 he formed a hard rock cover band called The Safe Word with Jon McCormick, Rob Reed, and Kevin Fine which would later be renamed Take Cover. In 2011 Urban Jellyfish was formed from the ashes of Take Cover. By 2013 Urban Jellyfish added Meghan on keys and had produced the Far From Impossible EP. Soon after the crew was disbanded and Meghan and Bradford started the project Madness Blooms in 2014. He eats the flesh of his mortal enemy, the deep fried chicken.
