The singer/songwriter project began in the Spring of 2005 with the release of the first album, "Reflection". This first album was recorded primarily as a songwriter promotional project to showcase the songwriting skills of Madeline Roa and her ability to write across musical genre's. This recording project was recorded with a full band/full studio polished sound in hopes to also get radio air play.
In 2006, this goal was accomplished. Madeline Roa became a "Sounds of Sac" artist with a two month run on the now defunct KWOD 106.5, one of Sacramento's prime radio stations during this time. She was also selected to be featured in a photo shoot for the National Magazine "Play Guitar Magazine" Summer 2006 issue based out of San Francisco, California.
While performing in several venue's in Nevada and all across Northern California, Madeline polished her songwriting to be more reflective of her rhythmic roots developing a unique urban flavor.
Not wanting to get trapped in a specific genre, Madeline Roa took a break from the acoustic music in 2008 to record and perform her experimental projected under the pseudonym, "Anime Girl the New Beat Poet". [For more information regarding this project, visit the Anime Girl the New Beat Poet page at CDBaby.com].
In 2010, she decided to finish her much asked about 2nd album, "Dreaming" which she finished recording in the fall of that year.
