Madelyn Victoria: Neo-Traditional Country Music Artist
“I want to write and perform authentic country music in hopes of bringing inspiration to people in Texas and beyond.”
Over 10 years ago, Madelyn Victoria Vallejo started her Country music journey in the deep south terrain of Texas. Sharing roots with Country superstar Freddy Fender, she is proud to call San Benito, TX her hometown, and San Antonio, TX her latest stomping grounds. Influences from nature, family, faith, hope, love, and life experiences led Madelyn to start storytelling through music. Her Neo-traditional sound mixed with hints of Tex-Mex honkytonk soul will get you in a real Texas two-step mood.
Madelyn Victoria has a love for all the arts. In 2006, she undertook training with Barbizon School of Talent in Dallas to perfect her showmanship and presentation. She was then selected by DMG Management of Dallas to attend the Modeling Association of America International Competition and Convention in New York in 2007 held at the Waldorf Astoria. Madelyn out-sang all other competitors to win the vocal competition and received awards and recognition in the Soap Opera, TV Commercial, and Photo Posing categories. To gain additional exposure that same year, Madelyn Victoria auditioned to perform with the Radio Disney Superstars of Dallas, was selected, and had the opportunity to be a part of the opening act for pop boy band sensation, The Jonas Brothers. Soon after, Madelyn was trained to become an acting and vocal performance coach for Barbizon, showcases for iPOP, and for Studio 92 in Dallas, TX. 2012 was also a big year for Madelyn Victoria; she was selected as the Caesar’s Palace Shania Twain Sing Off Winner out of competitors from all around the world.

Madelyn Victoria and her band have shared the stage with some of the biggest names in country music, including Easton Corbin, Randy Rogers Band, Turnpike Troubadours, Tracy Lawrence, Kevin Fowler, Clay Walker, Josh Thompson, Dustin Lynch, Zac Brown Band, the Charlie Daniels Band, and more.
To attain better knowledge of the music business and refine her goals of becoming a long-term artist in the Country music industry, along with the start of her own record label, Madelyn studied online at Full Sail University and earned her Bachelor of Science Degree in Music Business. Her passion for her home state of Texas, authentic original Country music, family, faith, and pursuit of chasing dreams shines through her branding; with this she wants to influence and inspire her target audience in Texas, and beyond.
