New EP ‘’Slide''
Toronto, ON (February 17, 2023) — Kicking the new year off with a bang, BMG/Wheelhouse Records breakthrough artist Madeline Merlo has earned the top spot with her single “Slide” becoming the #1 most added CanCon track across all formats and country (Mediabase). This follows the song’s incredible streaming success since its release, earning over 1.9M global streams and leading the way for everything that is to come from the Season 2 SONGLAND-winning artist.
With so much exciting life events happening for this award-winning songwriter this year, including a performance at Cavendish Beach Music Festival, her upcoming wedding, and an exciting new announcement that the fans are not going to want to miss.
Growing up surrounded by music, her father a touring musician, and her parents owning a live music venue, Madeline Merlo was destined for a career in music. That destiny would soon lead her to Nashville to fulfill her dreams.
‘’Madeline Merlo is such a gifted and brilliant singer-songwriter, ‘’ says Kim Cyr, Editor in Chief for NOW and THEN Magazine, radio host, and host on the International Music's Journey Podcast. ‘’The music industry is tough and difficult to break through with the talent pool in Canada and the USA. Merlo has broken down some major barriers and she has successfully established herself as a talented sought-after songwriter in the American country music landscape. That isn't easy. After winning her episode on the songwriting show, Songland, the singer-songwriter knew she had what it took to up the ante. Today, Merlo slides into the top spot with the new radio release of her new single Slide.''
The songstress delivers her best work yet showcasing her songwriting chops and her killer vocals with her new EP ‘’Slide''. The title track, written by Merlo with Zach Crowell, Jerry Flowers, and Sam Hunt has been an instant fan favorite off of the record. Although originally developed for Hunt, the writers knew the song would be better from a woman’s perspective. Merlo was clearly the right woman for the job with her ability to write with a unique perspective that worked perfectly for this song.

The singer continues to share female stories throughout the EP. On “YOUNG-ish,” Merlo stakes her claim in her womanhood – encouraging all of us to challenge the misconception that everyone’s path should be the same.
