|Brisbane based Madeleine Paige is in a class of her own.
It’s refreshing to receive an EP to review that one instantly likes and that was exactly the case with this.
Madeleine Paige’s latest EP entitled “The Voice Behind The Noise” consisting of 5 beautifully crafted songs that were recorded at Massive Studios by Matt Redlich (Hungry Kids Of Hungary).

“The Voice Behind The Noise” was released on 8 May 2009. Madeleine Paige is currently touring and her show is one that shouldn’t be missed.
