PRESENTED BY KIANNA MARTINEZ

Years before launching her career as a pop-rock soul singer, Madeleine Besson took her first violin lesson at two years old. By age four, she was playing piano. By her teenage years, she'd also grown into a classical vocalist, Beatles fanatic, multi-instrumentalist, and film actress, swirling together a number of artistic influences — from popular music to Baroque compositions to film scores — that would eventually inspire her own diverse songwriting.

Those songwriting skills reach a new peak with Journey Home, Besson's second album of original material. Produced in Nashville by guitar hero Dave Coleman, it's a moody, melodic record, filled with blue notes, slow-burning soul songs, and plenty of electric guitar accompaniment. Driving the mix forward is Besson's voice: an elastic instrument that swoons one minute and swaggers the next, channeling influences like Etta James, Otis Redding, and Ray Charles along the way.

When she moved to Nashville as an adult, Besson discovered a new home. There was a familiar kind of energy in Nashville, a music-filled town whose pace reminded Besson of her own creative upbringing. She found even more comfort in herself, embracing not only her new surroundings, but a newfound sort of inner peace, as well.
