About Us

A few words about Madyon

Let us introduce ourselves and our music

Madyon are an Italian rock band formed in 2012 by lead vocalist/guitarist Cristian Barra and bassist Andrea Olivieri. In 2013 Paolo Papini and Fabrizio Casciola joined the group at the same time as a guitarist and a drummer.

March 11th 2012 marked the launch of the newfound band‘s first video on YouTube: an acoustic cover of “We Found Love” by Rihanna. The reaction to the video was incredible, particularly because no other band from Italy was approaching the genre at the time. In a few months and after many videos published on YouTube, the band has reached more than 1.000.000 views and thousands of subscribers.

On July, 7 2013 Madyon performed their first ever live exhibition on the main stage of “Collisioni”, the biggest music festival in Italy.

On September, 6 2014 the band has released “Miracle EP” their first original EP, mastered at Abbey Road Studios in London. The EP entered the Italian’s iTunes Top 100 chart without any label.
