Madeline Merlo- “Whatcha Wanna Do About It” (Open Road). This country singer/songwriter won the 2015 Rising Star award at the Canadian Country Music Association Awards and she’s rapidly validating that title. Earlier singles have notched over 1.4 Million Spotify Streams, and this vibrant new single will surely boost that figure considerably.
It certainly whets the appetite for Merlo’s debut album, Free Soul, due on April 29. This summer she’ll play major country music festivals across Canada, including The Rockin River Fest, B.C. and Boots and Hearts, ON. She also makes her acting debut in upcoming country musical film Country Crush, inspired by the Nashville scene. An artist on the rise indeed.
