Maddy Walsh is a singer-songwriter and poet living in a converted barn in the rolling hills of Ithaca, New York. For the past decade plus, she has been best known as the powerhouse lead singer, co-songwriter, and co-founder of Upstate, New York based, nationally touring moxy rock band Maddy Walsh & The Blind Spots, and she just released an album of culturally relevant indie pop music called Humanmade Thing at The Hangar Theatre in Ithaca with an eight-piece band of some regional all-star musicians. The new record showcases her fierce sense of social justice and empathy within our conflicted political climate.

Walsh holds a bachelor's degree in English and Creative Writing (poetry and nonfiction) from SUNY Binghamton and a master's degree in the same concentration from CSU Sacramento. She has released one solo folk record (Patchwork, 2007), one solo meditative indie record with her partner Mike Suave (The Tunnel Sessions, 2021), four pop rock records with MW&TBS (found on the band's website, https://theblindspots.com ), and one synth-pop record with her father, Ted Walsh, under the name Madd Daddy (That Good Life, 2018). For the past twelve years, prior to the pandemic, Walsh spent a good part of her time touring the country with MW&TBS, finding her greatest joy in creating and performing music. She also loves travel, yoga, hanging out with kids around the age of four, red wine, animals, guerrilla seamstressing, and thrift shopping.
