Maddy Marsan is a singer-songwriter, composer, and oboist. 

Half the time Maddy is widdling away at oboe reeds, practicing etudes, playing Mozart, and performing at the Great Hall in the Krannert Center. The other half is spent breaking guitar pedals, scribbling down poetry and playing songs at venues around Chicago and Champaign-Urbana.

Sometimes these worlds meld into carefully crafted songs that use the oboe to tell stories through melodies, harmonies, counter melodies and harmonics.
