“Picked as one of the two singer/songwriters in the CBS Sacramento "Best of"...for "Best Local Folk Singers In Sacramento”

“Madeline Roa, long-time Sacramento Folk-rock performer needs nothing except her guitar and beautiful sing-song voice to gather her audience's attention.”

"As you can see, my musical taste is all over the map," explains local singer-songwriter Madeline Roa, whose influences read like a Lilith Fair lineup. It's not hard to imagine Roa, armed with her emotionally charged lyrics and sweet voice, performing as part of the now-defunct festival

“One of three 'featured unsigned artists' in the 2006 Summer Issue. ”

“.. Madeline Roa's music and vocal style has been compared to that of Natalie Merchant, Alanis Morrisette, and the Indigo Girls but there is much more going on than those comparisons would lead you to believe. Check out Madeline's live show the next time she's playing.”

“Musically they are a combination of acoustic guitars, folk/pop, easy listening music. Vocally Madeline reminds me of a cross between "Natalie Merchant" (10,000 maniacs) meets "Edie Brickell" (and the new Bohemians).”

“I've named this selection of rock fem-antics fun rock. : ) It left me feeling like I wanted to mosh around without hitting anything...or anybody.”

“When Roa steps to the microphone on the low stage at Old Ironsides downtown, all eyes - the dozen or so pairs of them - are fixed on her as she leans into a song about the Iraq war. And when she finishes, the listeners applaud warmly. Some even whoop for her.”
