Canadian-Californian songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Madeline Tasquinis a well-rounded performer, vocalist and multi-instrumentalist who has extensive experience touring locally, regionally and internationally both as a solo artist and bandleader. She has collaborated or recorded with an impressive list of acts including Tea Leaf Green, Fantastic Negrito, Panic is Perfect, Beats Antique and Whiskerman, and internationally with Les Gars d'en Bas in France and Furia in Belgium.

Singing in both French and English, Madeline has a personable presence that shines both on and off stage and the musicality and professionalism to match, earning her nothing but 5-star reviews from previous clients for her private work performing at wedding proposals and receptions, house concerts, and corporate events throughout the Bay Area.

Madeline specializes in French music (from Edith Piaf to Serge Gainsbourg, Pink Martini to Charles Aznavour), accompanying herself on jazz guitar and ukulele. She also also loves adding her unique flavor to covers of Radiohead, The Beatles, Björk, Joni Mitchell, Leonard Cohen, Billie Holiday, Sam Cooke and a large repertoire of artists reflecting her diverse influences. In 2017 she entertained guests for 6 weeks at a 5-star resort in The Maldives with a mixed repertoire of jazz, French, foreign language, pop and original material accompanied by guitarist Dusty Brough.

Madeline Tasquin's own compositions fold in her love of French music, the theatricality of Cabaret, and influences including gospel music, West African rhythm and the music of the Balkans, to create something truly unique. Expect catchy melodies with inventive lyrics that explore the many facets of love, the cosmos from plantlife to the planets.
When performing solo, Madeline accompanies herself on piano, guitar and ukulele, with foot percussion and a healthy amount of storytelling and audience participation.

In October 2016, she founded a trio with Hannah Levy on vocals and bass and Shiloh Parkerson on vocals and flute, naming the group "Sarabande" after her mother's 1970s trio of the same name. So far the dynamic trio has covered Gillian Welch, Leonard Cohen, Serge Gainsbourg, The Grateful Dead, and Drake, adding a unique interpretation to each. But the bulk of their set is made up of Madeline's catchy and inventive songs, drenched in delicious vocal harmonies sung with a vocal blend that hints at vocal-centric trios like Dirty Projectors, Red Molly and The Andrew Sisters.

Her longest running project in the Bay Area has been her involvement in The Bug Family Band who create music "for kids of all ages," and are a popular act on the Family Stage at High Sierra Music Festival as well as local kids' music series at Ashkenaz, Sweetwater Music Hall, La Peña Cultural Center and The Freight & Salvage. Madeline sings harmonies and plays auxiliary percussion in this group, who dress up in full insect attire for each show and offer up clever lyrics sung in 2 to 4 part harmony, blending jazz, rock and folk influences of the various members. Madeline has penned two original kids' songs for the group, "Firefly" and "Honeybee," the latter found on the group's award-winning 2016 album, "A Bee C D."
