GLASSNOTE RECORDS ANNOUNCE SIGNING OF MADISEN WARD AND THE MAMA BEAR
New York, NY- Glassnote Entertainment Group is excited to introduce the newest addition to the independent label’s roster with the worldwide signing of Kansas City-based band, Madisen Ward and the Mama Bear. Madisen Ward and the Mama Bear, a mother-and-son duo, consists of singer/guitarist and songwriter  Madisen Ward and his mother, Ruth, also on vocals and guitar. The duo has been playing together in their hometown of Kansas City, building a small and under the radar following over the past few years. Recently, a trip to the Americana Music Festival in Nashville has found the band in the national spotlight, garnering critical acclaim from Rolling Stone, NPR, PASTE, CMT Edge and more for their mesmerizing songwriting, vocals and live dynamic. As Aquarium Drunkard states, “…there is unique, intangible magic about them that deepens the experience – a solemn, thoughtfulness in their delivery and a mysterious beauty flowing from their voices, their guitars and their bond.” Madisen Ward and the Mama Bear are currently working on their debut album, which is expected in early 2015 via Glassnote Records.  Watch Madisen Ward and the Mama Bear perform “Silent Movies” and “Live By the Water” here. Recent Praise: “…the duo’s raw, inscrutable chemistry was in full effect as they handily made a case as an inevitable force to be reckoned with in the days to come.” - Rolling Stone Country, 20 Best Things We Saw at Americana Music Fest 2014 "…the acoustic guitar duo of Madisen Ward and the Mama Bear… created a sensation." – Ann Powers, NPR MUSIC “There is NOTHING more beautiful raw and perfect as Madisen Ward & The Mama Bear in this entire country right now.”  — Sean Moeller, Paste Magazine “I was absolutely blown away by this unique mother-and-son duo and their homespun acoustic back porch blues. Their interactions with each other and with the intimate crowd were engaging, warm and welcoming…. it’s safe to say that Madisen Ward and the Mama Bear turned in my favorite surprise set of this year’s festivities.”  — Will Hodge, CMT EDGE "…there is unique, intangible magic about them that deepens the experience – a solemn, thoughtfulness in their delivery and a mysterious beauty flowing from their voices, their guitars and their bond."  — Chad Depasquale, Aquarium Drunkard “Ward’s voice has a strange texture; rich and dramatic as if it wants to bellow big enough for an opera house, yet strained with the shards of emotion that litter the generational voices of soul singers. Then there are the different vocal personalities he portrays… Ward throws his voice from falsetto yelps to low growls in an instant while retaining the same familiarity despite leaping across an emotional spectrum…”  — I Guess I’m Floating



Absolutely wonderful news.
Congratulations Madisen Ward and the Mama Bear!  xx

This is the first part of a secret, ridiculous, and completely juvenile project that I’m working on with Mr. Felix Ding. A creepy/awesome paper clown puppet that my mom has sitting around her house served as inspiration to make the characters in paper puppet form. As this was my first attempt at such a puppet, the process was a bit drawn-out and involved a lot of sketching and erasing and sketching and erasing and sketching and erasing, and then procrastination brought on by the paralyzing fear that I might screw something up. The cat helped, though, and it all turned out OK. The final image you see is a composite of individual scanned pieces, though the piece does exist in actual puppet form. I was even lucky enough to stumble upon blue brads to put it all together! All in all, I’m quite happy with the results and excited to play around with it more.

:D
