I'm Madeleine Lewis, and Hairpin Turns is my solo recording project. I've played guitar and bass in some half dozen bands in the Pacific Northwest US, and somewhere in all of that I got hooked on recording. I love the possibilities it offers for manipulating sounds in ways that aren't necessarily possible in a band context.
Other projects, recent and remote, include:
Deceleration Lab. We have an EP coming out on March 5th, 2015.
We wrote and performed originals. There were two of us named Madeleine. It was the 1980's in a small college town near the Canadian border. This was by far the most fun group I've been part of. We were a bit unruly, so the live shows were entertaining and unpredictable. I played bass.
An off-shoot of The Madeleines.
I'd switched to guitar by this point.
We were all about the songwriting,
the melodic hook, and vocal harmonies.
A sort of girl group amidst
the sea of grunge
in early 90's Seattle.
