Madeleine Roger
Madeleine Roger is a contemporary folksinger from Winnipeg, Canada. While accompanying herself on acoustic guitar, it is her artistry as a songwriter that can silence a room, uniting her captivating voice with vivid lyricism and a maturity beyond her years. A former thespian and a lifelong traveler, she is prone to absorbing stories and questioning the way that things are, creating songs with imaginative melodies and honesty that bares truths about being alive.

Appearing often in the folk/roots duo Roger Roger with her twin brother Lucas, Madeleine has performed at music festivals across Canada, sung as a musical guest on CBC Radio's DNTO, and released their debut album Fairweather locally and overseas which reached the No. 1 spot on the Canadian national folk/roots/blues charts, garnering acclaim for its exceptional songwriting. She has also toured as backing vocalist with Carly Dow, Kevin Roy, and Logan McKillop.

"Madeleine’s voice stays with you, reminiscent at times of a young Joni Mitchell."
- Mojo

Madeleine’s work reflects whatever is on her mind. curious characters, natural beauty and decay, historical events, the human condition, artistic influences, and daily goings-on inspire her impressive catalogue of songs.
