MAWD (Madeline Matthews) is a soulful rock ’n’ roll singer-songwriter based in California. Not too long ago, she released a groovy indie-rock tune, entitled, “Wandering Eye”.

The Brandon Villalovos-directed video finds MAWD performing on a retro set with her band. She sings about a woman who is in a relationship with a guy who accuses her of having a wandering eye. He claims she’s looking at other guys when they are out and about. The woman agrees his statement is partially true and she does have a wandering eye. But it’s only looking at him and at no other man as far as she’s concerned.

‘Wandering Eyes’ contain a relatable storyline, soulful vocals, and hard hitting melodies. Also, it possesses a robust instrumentation empowered with an infectious nostalgic vibe.

“This song was started almost a year ago in my room and I thought.. meh this is just okay. Then I brought it into @josiahtheemessiah who said no way this song is great. We finished it together and he helped bring so much magic to it! ⭐️ I’m very proud to release this song and hope you guys have so much fun listening to it.” – MAWD 👁

MAWD made her mark playing original songs at a weekly local open mic in her hometown of Placerville, Northern California. Not too long after that, she found a larger audience in Chico, CA, where she attended CSU, Chico’s music program.

Later, she became a part of the blossoming local Northern California scene fronting and writing for various bands. Also, she won local singer/songwriter competitions, which resulted in TV and radio appearances plus press. Her voice and stunning live performances caught the attention of Roger Gisborne of LA-based indie label Sound x 3 Records. He immediately signed MAWD and sent her to tour in Scandinavia.
