Biography[edit]

She was born in Boyceville, Wisconsin, to Greg Wold, who works for an advertising firm,[2] and Heidi Wold; she has five siblings.[3] She has English and Irish ancestry. Bailey began to play music and write songs at the age of seven.[4] She played in the marching band of Boyceville High School[5] and graduated in 2011. Before becoming an artist, Bailey worked as a certified nursing assistant.[4] She is dyslexic.[6] She began her career shortly before graduating,[7] by covering popular songs and posting them on YouTube, which gathered over 100 million views.[1] In 2012, Bailey joined Keep Your Soul Records to assist with the production of her material and moved to Los Angeles in 2013.[4]

Madilyn toured the United States and Canada with Boyce Avenue in the second half of 2013.[1][4] She later described it by saying “It was an amazing experience being on the road for the first time.”[5] In 2014 she married Jimmy Benrud.[3][8]

In 2015, her rendition of the song “Titanium” by David Guetta, gained airplay on Virgin Radio in France.[9] This led to a recording contract with PlayOn in France, a label of Warner Music Group.[9] The song charted in France and Belgium as did the follow-up, a cover of Imagine DragonsRadioactive“. In October 2015, Bailey released an album of covers in France, entitled Muse Box, supported by the single “Rude” feat. Flula. A fourth single, a cover of Cher’s “Believe” appeared in early 2016.[10]

In July 2016 she released a five track EP of original material entitled “Wiser”.[11][12]

In 2016, her cover of David Guetta‘s Titanium was featured on the Australian TV Series, Wanted.

She has stated that she has been inspired by Michelle Branch and Kina Grannis.[1]
