Madeline Merlo of Maple Ridge, BC is back with new music, her first release since “Neon Love” in 2018. The song performed well, peaking at #11 on the Canadian chart, but her most successful to date is 2017’s “Motel Flamingo” landing at #8.
“With every song that does well, you kind of learn a little bit about what your fans like and that song (Motel Flamingo) was a big move for me and I was really passionate about it, I thought it was so much fun, and it created such a visual brand from it,” reflected Merlo.
Her new song is titled “Unravelling,” which she co-wrote with Cameron Bedell and Steven Dale Jones. The song is a reflection of the ups and downs of her 2018. She says artists like Etta James and Dolly Parton influenced her to write about her feelings even when they may not be so nice.
“I wrote this song about a year ago when I was going through a break up that just kind of fell through my fingers and this song just felt special to me,” noted Merlo.
