Madeleine Rose Witney is a masterful storyteller, moving from traditional standards to her own compositions. Taking you on a seamless journey though soulful blues, New Orleans rhythms. the swing of the jazz era, to more contemporary sounds. A woman with a voice like velvet who takes her every experience, wraps it in song and leads the audience through her lyrical and cinematic world; emulating the Golden Age. 

Finding her voice as a young woman thanks to the sounds of jazz legends from the 1930s to the 1950s. Sarah Vaughan, Carmen McRae, Billie Holiday, Ella Fitzgerald, Anita O'Day and Julie London. Inspired by the techniques of these songstresses of yesteryear, Madeleine’s live performances are vintage inspired but modern, relevant, sometimes outré and always designed to engage and provoke.

Madeleine’s unique talent is gauging atmospheres. Tailoring her performances to move from soft subtle jazz vocals floating through the air to vibrant performances, getting everyone on their feet! Supported by London’s greatest Jazz musicians, often championing female talent.

Madeleine Rose Witney has already built a solid foundation of followers thanks to her performances at high-profile venues in London: The Royal Albert Hall, The Roundhouse, The Victoria and Albert Museum and her two sold out shows at The Jazz Cafe. Her previous residences include The Groucho Club, Kimpton Fitzroy, Nightjar, Adam Street Private Members Club, Bloomsbury Bar, Primo, Oriole and Novikov.

Our Sponsors

Black Cow is the world’s first Pure Milk Vodka. Made in West Dorset using what is left over from grass grazed cows milk after making cheese. Using milk as our only source ingredient is what makes Black Cow vodka so deliciously smooth. Sip neat, or mix in a long drink or cocktail. At Black Cow we know milk is precious, so we don't waste a drop. Black Cow is made using what is left over from milk when making cheese. It starts with separating the milk into curds and whey. The curds make the cheese – including Black Cow Deluxe Cheddar – but, often, the whey ends up going to waste. We take that whey and, using a secret distilling process, turn it into the World's Smoothest Vodka. Black Cow is based on a farm in the heart of West Dorset, a cross-country ramble several miles from Beaminster. We like to keep things simple so we do most things here on the farm. Jason’s 250-strong herd of dairy cows graze on nearby fields and our vodka is distilled and bottled here by hand. We also have a Bar & Kitchen where we host tastings, workshops and other events. www.blackcow.co.uk
