• BIOGRAPHY

Madyon are a rock band formed in Cuneo (IT) in 2012 by lead vocalist/guitarist Cristian Barra. The other members of the band are Giorgio Prandino (guitar), Paolo Bergese (bass) and Michele Cera (drums).

Since the beginning the band joined the music industry with an international approach and a clear detailed project. Thanks to a private audio/video recording studio owned by the band, they started a YouTube channel that fastly reached incredible numbers. Thanks to this approch, from their first live show, MADYON performed on the main stage of big festivals like Collisioni Festival (IT) of Reset Festival (IT), as opening act for famous artists like Jamiroquai and Elton john.

Based on their decleared british influences, the music produce by Madyon can be defined as britpop, alternative-rock or indie-rock.

“I never thought of being a good guitarist, a good singer or a good composer. I’m good in being Cristian Barra from Madyon.”

Singer/Songwriter from Madyon

With these words the frontman of the band describes the attitude of Madyon. Not just a band who produced music but a whole world where they leave clues related to what the meaning of life is for them. Music videos, album covers, graphics, live shows, lyrics and music. Everything is designed with a view from the top. Everything is part of a bigger project.

Since the beginning Madyon decided to work on their original music trying to reach the highest sound quality that the international scene could offer. This decision took the band all around Europe and working with top international sound engineer like Christian Wright and Geoff Pesche (Coldplay, Ed Sheeran, Mumford & Sons) at Abbey Road Studios in London.

On September 2014 the band has released “Miracle EP” their first original EP that entered the Top 100 album chart in Italy. On May 2016 the band has released their second EP called “Roll The Shadows” that entered the Top 10 Album Chart in Italy.

In the same period (2016/2017) they’ve introduced the “Roll The Shadows Tour” with over 20 gigs all around Europe (UK, France, Italy).

In September 2018 the band has released their new single called “Staring At The Sun” introducing their new VEVO channel.

Nowadays their working on something more than an EP: their first album that will be released in 2020 that will be anticipated by a short tour in the north of Italy to introduce the new music.
