Madam West is an NYC-based experimental pop quintet. Originating as a synth-pop duo in a musty Bushwick basement, the group has grown into a five-piece fusing alt-rock, folk and neosoul influences into a layered and danceable sound wholly their own.

The group has been favorably reviewed in IMPOSE, Tiny Mix Tapes, GoldFlakePaint, NextNorthWest, and Bearded (UK) and embarked on their first national tour in Spring 2017. Madam West has opened for Anna Wise (Grammy winner for Kendrick Lamar’s To Pimp A Butterfly) and shared festival bills with artists the likes of Milo, Guerrilla Toss and Zola Jesus.
