About Big Richard
The world-class musicians in Big Richard initially convened in 2021 for a festival date. The quartet showed up to the one-off like it had been together for years, bursting with jaw-dropping virtuosity; playfully irreverent stage banter; stunning four-part harmony vocal interlace; imaginative arrangements; a refreshingly eclectic repertoire; and a healthy dose of lady rage.

Quickly things for the Colorado-based, neo-acoustic supergroup morphed into something way bigger than a one-and-done appearance. The sellout club shows, and the confirmed festival dates across America drastically changed its members’ lives. Now, Big Richard is poised to penetrate the Americana music world and beyond. To date, the quartet has issued 3 singles, the Live from Telluride album, and it has new music on the way.

Big Richard siphon from traditional bluegrass, oldtime, classical, modern bluegrass, country, and pop. The four-piece band masterfully mash up genres, often using traditional fiddle tune pieces as instrumental flights of fancy between its storyteller original songs. The group also refreshingly reinvents beloved traditional tunes.

The four musicians have previously played together in various configurations, but united to rage fiddle tunes and smash the patriarchy in Big Richard. The band is platinum recording artist Bonnie Sims on mandolin (Bonnie & Taylor Sims, Everybody Loves an Outlaw, Bonnie and the Clydes), multi-genre musician Dr. Joy Adams on cello (Nathaniel Rateliff, Darol Anger, Half Pelican, Bruce Hornsby, Bobby McFerrin, Chick Corea, Ben Folds), Emma Rose on bass and guitar (Sound of Honey, Daniel Rodriguez, Whippoorwill, Courtney Hartman), and Eve Panning on fiddle (Lonesome Days, TEDx, Barrage, Hollywood Film Score Orchestra).  

About Madeline Hawthorne
Sporting a wide brimmed black hat atop long curly blonde locks, guitar in hand, fire in her voice, and stories in her heart, Madeline Hawthorne asserts herself as a 21st century troubadour. An intriguing journey gives her songs a novelist’s level of depth and detail, while unbridled attitude and wide-eyed adventurousness turn every show into a celebration. After building buzz independently, packing shows, and honing her craft, the Montana-based singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist welcomes everyone into her world on a series of 2023 singles and much more to come.

Writing at a feverish pace, she decamped to Pittsburgh, PA and recorded her debut album ‘Boots’ with producers Brad Parsons and Tyler Thompson. Her signature style started to crystallize with the LP’s artful fusion of roots, country, rock, and soul as evidenced by the fan favorite title track “Boots.” In the record’s wake, she opened up for the likes of Jason Isbell, Lukas Nelson, Kip Moore, Josh Turner, and Nathaniel Rateliff, to name a few.

2023 brought yet another new chapter in her musical career as she tapped producer Ryan Hadlock [Zach Bryan, The Lumineers] to produce a recording session at the iconic Bear Creek Studios in Woodinville, WA. She came out on the other side with a vibrant and vital vision that was brought to life on the single “Neon Wasteland.”
