Charlotte percussion legend, Jim Brock, who produced “Roots and Wings”, writes this about Maddie:
“She has this raw spirit in her music that hasn't had time to be jaded or molded. The spirit of this 17 year old is what all music should possess, no matter the genre."
" Write this down: Maddie Shuler.. Maddie is one of the most gifted singer songwriters I have had the pleasure of seeing perform. Maddie is an old soul living in the spirit of a young lady. Maddie’s songwriting, guitar playing, vocals, and stage presentation rival that of journeyman artists with years of experience. Her subtle confidence and polished communication skills can place any audience at ease and capture the hearts of the most discriminating listeners. Maddie was flanked on our stage by the extremely talented veteran female artist Jackie Moseley ( Songwriter of the Year 2012) and the incredible master craftsman Mike Alicke. In a whisper quiet listening room filled to capacity, Maddie more than held her own in this powerhouse Songwriter Showcase, held monthly at the long standing venue Summit Coffee in Davidson, NC. Maddie Shuler is an amazing young artist."
