Madison McWilliams wants you to join her party on ‘Smell The Roses’
Pop stars these days seem to achieve their breakthrough on younger and younger ages. This might well be the case with Madison McWilliams soon as well. This 14 years old singer and songwriter from Austin, Texas is ready for a big next step in her career with her new single ‘Smell The Roses’. She has a quickly increasing fan base that is no doubt willing to join her on a party with this upbeat pop tune that reminds everyone of the good sides of life!
Madison first impressed online music fanatics when she recorded a cover of Nina Simone’s classic ‘Feeling Good’ and managed to gather more views with the single ‘You Don’t Know My Heart’ (which was later also released by Rachel Platten). Now it is time to step forward with her own material, single ‘Smell The Roses’, co-written with Emile Ghantous, Keith Hetrick, Paulina Cerrilla and Kirsten Collins. The breezy pop tune urges her listeners to stop for a minute and enjoy the beautiful moments of life. Her vocals soar over a light electronic production with soft beats and the chorus is very instant. It’s catchy, uplifting, sugary sweet and cute and isn’t that exactly how we like our teen pop tracks?
McWilliams recorded a happy go lucky music video for ‘Smell The Roses’ with director Nayip Ramos in her hometown Austin, Texas. “One of my favorite things about this video was shooting it in my hometown. It was so fun because I could express myself in an environment that I love. I had such an amazing time working with Nayip on this video. He has incredible talent and vision”, Madison explains. She looks like she is enjoying herself goofing around with her friends in the sun. Needless to say that is the perfect visual for a summery anthem about celebrating life!
