Mads Jensen is a writer and singer from Pleasant Grove, Utah. After hopping on a Greyhound bus and leaving the LDS church, she went on to study at Columbia University. Whimsical and sardonically irreverent, her upcoming debut album “Now That I’m A Woman” was recorded shortly after moving to New York City on a whim during the pandemic. It contains musings on loves (lost, gained, never had at all), her experience trying to piece together a life outside of Mormonism, and her quarter life crisis.
At 12ft tall, most people pushed me to play basketball and volleyball growing up. Bouncing a leather ball against oak wood floors behind the accordion walls of my chapel six nights a week was never that appealing to me. I knew there was more to life than beating the rival church’s squad of 5’10” white boys. I found myself through music, laying in a bathtub with an electric guitar until 4am some nights while furiously practicing scales and gaining finger strength faster than any Slc granola rock climber. I came dangerously close to electrocution on a nightly basis. I learned to dance with the devil. After all, satan is the king of rock n roll and I wanted to learn from the best. Wandering around main street of Salt Lake, following vagabonds who catch my eye. I live in the shadows of the scorching heat of city summers. Since my music isn’t paying the bills yet, I bus tables at the hottest burger bar in town. The money is decent and the servers are sexy. I tend to not listen to the rhetoric around me. I do what i want because I know what’s best for me even though it usually ends up in self sabotage. I make songs and get laid.
