Maddison Falls – LA Teens Debut New Rock Duo

Maddison Falls

Maddison Falls is a brand new original rock duo comprised of teenage prodigies Julien Fiore (lead vocals/drums) and Joel Soto (lead guitar). The talented young LA musicians met at their hometown’s annual major music-industry event, NAMM (National Association of Music Merchants). They bonded over their mutual love for composing and performing, and a band was born. 

Although Maddison Falls’ guitar/drum arrangement may seem unorthodox, they are actually continuing a great rock & roll tradition. Guitar and drum duos have earned their own chapter in the annals of popular music, with entries from The White Stripes to the late-great rockabilly guitarist Dexter Romweber’s Flat Duo Jets. On their debut single, Julien and Joel pair that iconic arrangement with an emotional and grungy alt-rock vibe.

“Both Sides” is the debut single and video from Maddison Falls, released worldwide via all major streaming services on April 18, 2024. The track opens on a dark minor-key acoustic guitar dealing a dose of Seattle-style melancholy. Julien steps to the mic and meets that mood with introspective and visual poetry in a lilting tenor, both of which bring to mind the great Josh Clayton-Felt from School of Fish. Joel sets the scene, painting layers of electric and acoustic guitars culminating in an arena-worthy solo in the bridge.
