All Country News Friday Find: Madison Kozak, A Sensational Up-And-Comer With So Many Stories To Tell
This week’s Friday Find features Madison Kozak, whose blooming career Rolling Stone has described as “sharp, swooning, and all the right kinds of sentimental.”
Her breakthrough debut, “First Last Name” features her impeccable vocals and songwriting, while containing beautiful guitar instrumentals and figurative language. Naturally, the track boasts over 1,000,000 streams on Spotify. Kozak has nailed her storytelling in a variety of topics, from the transparent “Loud House,” to the direct, ruthless “What Does Sorry Mean,” to the bubbly “OMG ILY,” to the longing “Hey Highway.” In “If We Were A Country Song,” her vulnerability and mastery of metaphors are both on full display. Kozak’s unique style of pop-country reminds us of a combination between Carrie Underwood and Maisie Peters.
The Canada-born singer graduated from Nashville’s Belmont University with a music business degree, shortly after signing with Big Loud Records in 2018. Subsequently, she supported stars such as Morgan Evans and Mason Ramsey on tour, as well as made her Grand Ole Opry debut. Kozak’s star continues to rise as CMT includes her in their 2021 LISTEN UP roster and 2020 Next Women of Country class. Most recently, Kozak released a limited edition vinyl featuring her four most recent singles, which fans can purchase on her official website.
With “minor chords” and “major feelings” as Kozak states in her Instagram bio, the blossoming singer/songwriter stuns in every song she puts out. It’s evident that she pours her heart and soul into every lyric she writes and every note she sings. We’re confident that Kozak will soon become a household name in both country and mainstream music, perhaps even the next Taylor Swift.
