About Madame Mayhem
The highly melodic alternative metal of Madame Mayhem is the brainchild of singer and songwriter Natalie Ann Cohen. A trained opera singer, the New York native released her first album under the moniker, White Noise, in 2012. Her third album, 2017's Ready for Me, was written with members of Sevendust and Evanescence.
Born and raised in Manhattan, Cohen studied at the Manhattan School of Music before double-majoring in musical theater and opera at the University of Miami. She began releasing music, including her debut single, "Addicted to You," as a full-time student, leading to a contract with Headball Records.
Madame Mayhem's debut album, 2012's White Noise, was produced by Hudson Brother Mark Hudson, who had previously produced albums for Ozzy Osbourne and Aerosmith in addition to Ringo Starr and Hanson, to name a few. The project's subsequent live shows included a residency at the Cutting Room in N.Y.C. Madam Mayhem's next album was co-produced by another high-profile musician, Billy Sheehan (Mr. Big, the Winery Dogs, David Lee Roth), alongside guitarist Simone Sello, who also mixed the record. The resulting Now You Know saw release in 2015. The following year, Cohen and her band toured the U.S. with acts including Doro and Mushroomhead.
Her third studio LP was co-written with producer Corey Lowery of Saint Asonia, Sevendust's Clint Lowery, and Evanescence's Troy McLawhorn. Titled Ready for Me, it arrived via Headball and Metalville in 2017. She and her band joined Sevendust on tour for several weeks in 2018. Released in January 2019, the Madam Mayhem single "Broken" was co-written with Breaking Benjamin's Keith Wallen and featured Sheehan on bass and Korn's Ray Luzier on drums. ~ Marcy Donelson
