Today’s music scene is a golden age for women. French pop-rock soul singer Madeleine Besson and Australian-born, singer/songwriter and instrumentalist Katie Cole are two such Nashville-based women who are shining a light for others to follow. Madeleine tells us about her new recording Journey Home, an album about departures, destinations, and the lessons learned along the way. It provides insight on Besson's own journey, which began in her childhood home of Paris, France, how she traveled the world as a child and eventually moved to Nashville as an adult. Katie is the touring keys player for The Smashing Pumpkins among many other musical endeavors, and recently released her newest solo offering, Things That Break, Part 1, featuring rootsy instrumentation, weaving Americana moodiness and Katie's own brand of soaring melodies. "I just want to make music that makes me excited and proud," said Katie.
