Man Overboard single Art work

“You can drown, for all I care.” Man Overboard, the single, is out! Chapter 2 of my new EP.

Man Overboard single Art work

I am so happy and relieved. My single, Man Overboard, the title track of my new EP album is finally out. It dropped at midnight last night. It's been a long road on this project.  I wrote it a couple of years ago and it's about that old crazy thing that happens in relationships when you think he's going to change and he never does. Man Overboard is about that moment when you realize you've had enough. It's Chapter 2 of my new EP, Man Overboard, dropping May 20th. Each song is part of the story. When the EP comes out, listen to Chapter 1, the prequel song to Man Overboard. It's called Game Changer. That's when you're sure he's the one... http://bit.ly/ManOverboardSingle

Man Overboard

Words and music by Maddy (Madison) Rodriguez

 The wind is heavy

The clouds grow dark

Another tsunami

Ripping us apart and baby

 

You know I love you

I don’t give up, when the storm gets bad

But you’re afraid of injuries

So you won’t love me back

 

You never stick it out long enough

For the storm to pass

All you know how to do

Is give up and pack your bags

 

Once again I’m shouting man overboard

You jump into the water, swim to the shore

Just when I am needing you the most to stay

In the middle of the storm you always run away

Shame on me for thinking that you’d stick around

You fooled me like you’ve done so many times before

Once again I’m shouting man overboard

Once again I’m shouting man overboard

 

You race back to me

When you figure out that you’re alone

And usually I let you

Come back onto the boat

 

But eventually you abandon me

You always bail when you get scared

So I won’t take you in again

You can drown for all I care

 

Once again I’m shouting man overboard

You jump into the water, swim to the shore

Just when I am needing you the most to stay

In the middle of the storm you always run away

Shame on me for thinking that you’d stick around

You fooled me like you’ve done so many times before

Once again I’m shouting man overboard

Once again I’m shouting man overboard

 

You’re so predictable

And yet I always fall for you

But I can’t do this anymore with you

We’ve just been here too many times before

Once again I’m shouting man overboard

You jump into the water, swim to the shore

Just when I am needing you the most to stay

In the middle of the storm you always run away

Shame on me for thinking that you’d stick around

You fooled me like you’ve done so many times before

Once again I’m shouting man overboard

Once again I’m shouting man overboard

My Pledge Music campaign at 78% of goal, but need to reach 100 %

Maddy Rodriguez in Campeche, Mexico

Hi There,

I hope you had an awesome Holiday Season and a fantastic New Years!!! I sure did :) I spent Christmas at home in Toronto with my parents, and my boyfriend and his fam too! And then I got to visit my Dad's side of the family in Campeche, Mexico. It was so nice seeing my cousins and aunts and uncles who all live there. I hadn't seen them in 2 years!

But now I'm back in music mode thinking about my recording coming up. I'm hoping to finish 6 songs before Feb 20th, which is when I'm going back to Nashville. 3 or 4 of the songs will be on my New EP coming out in the Spring (if all goes well and we raise 100% of the money we need to record)... The other couple of songs I will use to present to my publishing contacts in Nashville when I meet with them in Feb/March! It's gonna be a lot of work getting these new songs done, but it's my favourite kind of work! I love it!!!

As I've mentioned before, we won't actually be able to complete my New EP and the new demos, if we don't get my PledgeMusic campaign to 100% of the goal! This is because PledgeMusic won't give us ANY of the money we raised unless we reach 100%! And I cannot afford the cost to finish these recordings by myself.

...We hit 78% of the goal a few days ago, which is awesome!!! Thank you so much if you donated. But we have 2 weeks left and we still need to get to 100%. So if you haven't already, please consider pledging and pre-ordering the new EP (which is only $10 !!). It'll mean the world to me!!! There's still some great exclusives left too, which you can receive in return for you donation - such as a signed CD, or a Skype session with me, or your name in the liner notes, or if you live in the Toronto areal - a house concert!!!

I'm very excited about my new songs and I can't wait to share them with you. But I need your help to raise the rest of the money to record them! We're at 78% guys - SO CLOSE!!  Please pledge here if you can: http://www.pledgemusic.com/maddyrodriguez

Btw: All pledgers get behind the scenes access to the recording process and get to hear the songs before anyone else!

All the best to you this 2016! I hope it's the year that your dreams come true!

Love,

Maddy Xox
