Madeline Leman and the Desert Swells create a retro Americana sound that is sinful and soulful, heartbreaking and leg shaking. Influenced by Hank Williams and Bonnie Raitt, Madeline captivates audiences with stories of strong female protagonists, cowboys and truck drivers who ramble their way through the mundane and the profound. Inspired by her time in North America, Madeline weaves nostalgia soaked tales through light filled rooms to create authentic music of great storytelling and musical joy. Coupled with upbeat surf guitar and lush harmonies The Desert Swells are a high-energy live show not to be missed! Joined at The Retreat by current country ‘it girl’ Freya Josephine Hollick.
