Album Notes
Blue Companion is Madeleine's third CD and first since the release of True Heart in 1996. Madeleine and her co-producers Lonnie Knight and Richard Grossman took great care on this project to insure that the arrangements honored the intimate lyrics and haunting melodies contained in these 12 original songs. Knight co-wrote two of the tracks and his signature acoustic, electric and bass guitar are tastefully infused throughout the project.

Blue Companion features outstanding guest performances by Michael Johnson (Bluer Than Blue), Peter Ostroushko, Jim Anton, Michelle Kinney, Kenni Holmen, Bruce Kurnow, Giorge Pettus, Michael Nelson (Horn Heads), Jimmy Steffen, Holly Circle, Marc Anderson, Reid Papke and Greg Fleming-Wolfe.

Bill Hammond

I had myself a little house concert last night -- just me and my disc player and "Blue Companion" and an adult beverage -- and I just sat there and let this wonderful album wash over me. I tell you, it is a world-class effort.

Madeleine is somewhere between Mary Chapin Carpenter and Patty Griffin in voice, and her songs are beautifully crafted. Lonnie Knight's guitar work is always tasty and meaningful, not just decoration, and the guest artists (Peter Ostroushko, Michael Johnson among them) shine it up even brighter.

One of the best CDs I have heard in years. Highly recommended.


The sounds on this record are luxe and warm. A great record to cozy up with solo or along side excellent company. Madeline visits a range of observations we can all relate to and frames them using her own unique perspective. A fine collection of songs with excellent production and musicianship.
