In this episode I talk with visionary cellist, vocalist, and community activist Bonfire Madigan Shive. Madigan began her career in the Pacific Northwest Riot Grrrl scene, releasing music with independent record labels K and Kill Rock Stars. She’s gone on to establish herself as a trailblazing performer, blending folk, punk, classical and avant-baroque styles. She is also a founding collective member of The Icarus Project, a progressive, peer led mental health community and support network.
This week we talk with Madigan about transformations she has made during her twenty years as a performing artist. We also discuss her upcoming album, and the soon to be released film Whisper Rapture: A Bonfire Madigan Suite, documenting her journey from traumatized youth to virtuoso musician and pioneering mental health activist.
