Madeleine Brandli, an award winning composer, singer and songwriter, weaves hauntingly beautiful vocals into sophisticated song arrangements. Each one is inspired by her Celtic ancestry and her deep connection to the people and culture of Hawaii.
"In Shades of Green," with its uplifting poetic lyrics, takes the listener on a journey of roots and wings. Celtic music and Hawaiian music radiate with a passion for life and a reverence for language that resonate with Madeleineʻs life experience. To join the two is a natural expression of shared spirit.
Jeff Lams, producer, captured what was in Madeleine''s heart and brought it to life. His stunning arrangements flow easily from the opening Celtic sounds of penny whistle and string orchestral arrangement by Kim Scharnberg, to an ethereal blend of harp, cello, slack key guitar and Hawaiian bamboo nose flute.
Gaelyn Larrick designed exquisite packaging and artwork for this CD. Her painterly panoramic images blend the Celtic and Hawaiian themes to create a visual synergy with Madeleineʻs lyrics and liner notes.

My music celebrates the beauty of the Earth and the deep connections we share with those we love, whether for a moment or a lifetime."
Madeleine Brandli composes on the piano, harp and baritone ukulele. Music has been her lifelong passion.
