about

Madame So London, UK

Madame So is a Paris-born /London-based singer-songwriter.
She makes edgy pop that has been likened to Hole, Blondie, Patti Smith and PJ Harvey.
You’ll either love the catchy immediacy of her melodies or dismiss it as being too “lo-fi”… Either way, in her own words: “If I pushed your buttons, I’ve accomplished my mission.”
Her next single, 'Generation Y' comes out on 29th May 2020.
