about

Bonfire Madigan, AKA Madigan Shive, is one of my favorite musicians of all time. She clutches her cello like a life-raft, singing in gorgeous yelps and hums. It doesn’t really matter if you like the kind of music Bonfire Madigan sings, because she does it so soulfully and gracefully, you can’t help but stand there openmouthed, gawking at her vocals and cello.— Julianne Escobedo Shepherd, The Mercury Portland, OR.

about

Bonfire Madigan San Diego, California

Singer-composer-vocalist Madigan Shive is Bessie Smith reincarnated as a punk rock cellist, as progressive and liberal as they come. Her powerful voice conveys irresistible emotion and her music creates a new language that is as ancient as the oldest Indian medicine woman and as modern as intergalactic space travel. — Tricia Halloran, "Brave New World" KCRW-FM ... more

Track Name: Snowfell Summer
Snowfell Summer


Brand new snow,
And we were
Burned by that brand new snow,
Snowfell summer while we were
Burnt by that brand new snow,
Fell summer.
(hold on)

Sensing the new moon right around the corner came June,
Sensing the new moon when I just wanted to go with June,
(repeat)
I just wanted to go where June goes.

Well fed and apathetic who will take starved and impassioned,
(repeat)

It's real clear we hold a pity tear,
Well fed or welfare?
(repeat)

Swimsuit or a sled? (hold on)
Swimsuit or a sled? (let go)
(repeat)

Brand new snow,
And we were
Burned by that brand new snow,
Snowfell summer while we were
Burnt by that brand new snow
