E16: Frances Madden: Australian singer/songwriter on how every magic moment begins with a leap of faith The Creative Adventure

    • Society & Culture

In this episode, we chat with the wonderful Australian singer and songwriter Frances Madden.
 
Described by the Australian Institute of Music as "one of Australia's most talented young singer/songwriters and piano players", we hear about Frances's journey from a six year old who became obsessed with piano, to eventually playing live in front of tens of thousands of people.
 
She tells us about the challenges of truly putting yourself out there, the journey of pursuing a career in music, and how when the magic moments do happen, it makes everything worthwhile.
 
This is a conversation about fulfilling your destiny, whatever it takes.
 
We talk about:
 
Her super-strict piano teacher that helped her fall in love with music Having a mum and dad that truly believe in you The discomfort and vulnerability that is part and parcel of creating How you sometimes have to shoot lots of arrows before one hits The incredible journey and leap of faith that ended up with her opening the Australian Open Why authenticity is so fundamental to successful creativity How sometimes we only see what wasn't quite right in the rear view mirror Belief and the 'confidence cycle' Her dream to sing in a Disney movie Trusting every idea or instinct even if it sounds crazy Morning pages, and the importance of giving it time and space
