Betty Don’t – Single (Reviews)

A fusion of Country & Rock with catchy lyrics, definitely nailed that contemporary sound.

Worlds Gone To $h!t – Single (Reviews)

The thing I like about Chris Madden is that he really doesn’t give a $h!t. He plays his own brand of raucous Country Rock and makes no apologies for it.  The guitar is raw, the vocals are a drawl, the lyrics are a hoot…and yet strangely true. At a time when Country & Western is the biggest selling music on this island, it would be very easy for him to slick back his hair, tone down the swears, and rock like a wagon wheel.  Thank $h!t he doesn’t.

– Al Gilmore – Chordblossom –

This ain’t your daddy’s country music!  A gritty synthesis of country twang and rock’s “telling it like it is” attitude.  Brings to mind the whiskey soaked, smoky, honkey tonks of days gone by, but at the same time bringing a fresh perspective.

– Noelle Ellis – Gigging NI –


Crazy Bars & Fast Cars – EP (Reviews)

With a promising EP & thoughtful lyrics, Chris is a versatile artist that is hard to ignore

– Verity Moore – Maverick Magazine –

An exceptional EP, old school yet youthful, with songs ranging from foot tapping energetic tunes to mellow and emotional melodies, covering all areas of Alt. Country and Rock & Roll

– Chantelle Frampton – GiggingNI –


Crazy Bars & Fast Cars – Single (Reviews)

Crazy Bars & Fast Cars is a song somewhere between Garth Brooks & Nickelback, in terms of atmosphere & style, & is a promising beginning for Chris Madden

Love the feel of Crazy Bars & Fast Cars
