Madonna Nash is a High Octane performer fueled by extreme passion, hard work and dedication. The singer/songwriter, native to NC, has been performing since the age of 7 and has toured as a professional musician for over 10 years now. All of that experience combined with her southern charm, wit and humble delivery, has molded Nash into the stellar performer that she is today. Nash naturally captivates any audience, regardless of their musical preferences, leaving everyone in the crowd feeling fulfilled by the end of the show. “My music is not just about me and what I'm feeling, it's about reaching out to others and making a connection with every person in the crowd,” Nash says “I want folks to have a good time and leave happy so hopefully they will want to come back and do it again”.
Nash comes from a very musical family and her roots run deep in the history of country music. Her Great Great Uncle, Mr. Connie B.
