Maddy and Vince will pay tribute to the artists whose popular songs shaped Americas musical identity - Great American Songbook favorites spanning the era of George Gershwin to Bill Joel. Of course, timeless popular Christmas songs will also be featured.

“Maddy Winer has great musical instincts, a wonderful sound and best of all she knows how to read a lyric,” says legendary jazz guitarist Mundell Lowe. “I love the way Maddy and Vince work together on this CD; I feel as if musically they were thinking as one.”

Recording artist Maddy Winer is known for her effortless interpretation and jazz styling of the Great American Songbook. Maddy has headlined concerts throughout the U.S. and Canada including New York’s prestigious Lincoln Center. She is also a featured performer on the popular PBS special “Loonis McGlohon & Friends.” Maddy has appeared with countless jazz legends including Dave Brubeck, David Sanborn, Cyrus Chestnut, Joe Sample, George Shearing, Ellis Marsalis and Al Jarreau. 

Her latest CD CROSSROADS features Maddy with legendary jazz guitarist Vince Lewis. The free-flowing musical interaction translates into the energy and excitement of a live performance, as opposed to just another recording session.

“Crossroads takes the listener on a musical journey of timeless standards representing the heart and soul of the Great American Songbook,” says Maddy. “I have always had a passion for the works of Antonio Carlos Jobim and included two of his classics that I love to sing. I also pay tribute to the contemporary works of Joni Mitchell and Van Morrison.”
