About the event
MADAM RADAR is an Americana rock band that punches hard with their explosive harmonies, soaring guitar solos, and eclectic original tunes. The band is a tangled web of family and friends; Jace Cadle (rhythm guitar/vocals) is married to Kelly Green (lead guitar/vocals) who is the sister of Kody Lee (drums/vocals) who is dating Violet Lea (bass/vocals).
Fronted by the trio of Kelly, Violet, and Jace, MADAM RADAR is a revolving door of high-energy singer-songwriters, each with their own perspective and style that magically seem to overlap like the layers of a kaleidoscope. With all four members of the band providing harmonies, MADAM RADAR is a wall of colorful sound that changes shape, demanding your undivided attention.
MADAM RADAR has shared stages with Renowned acts such as Bon Jovi, Arc Angels, Lukas Nelson, Hayes Carll, Billy Joe Shaver, Jack Ingram, Shinyribs, Jackie Venson, and Comedian Ron White. They are a two-time Sonic Guild (formerly Black Fret) Grant recipient and were the first Austin-based band to perform at the Moody Center in Austin, TX.
MADAM RADAR released their first full length album under the name “The Texas KGB” in 2016 titled Songs in the Key of Pain. In 2017, they released their second full length album titled Welcome Home. Both were recorded at 512 Studios with Omar Vallejo.
MADAM RADAR announced their name change after being awarded their second grant from Black Fret in December 2019 at The Black Ball at ACL Live at the Moody Theater. They then released their third full length album Madam Radar in February of 2020. It was recorded at The Finishing School in Austin, Texas and produced by Gordy Quist of The Band of Heathens and engineered by Grammy award winning Steve Christensen.
During the global pandemic shortly following the release of Madam Radar, the band had to find a unique way to navigate the difficult situation and created a livestream that blossomed into a weekly internet variety show. The MADAM RADAR Saturday Extravaganza spanned 63 episodes from March of 2020 to June 2021. It featured the band performing a variety of covers and new originals written during the pandemic, as well as games and auctions for the fans to interact with the band. They even created Halloween and Christmas specials and a jingle for their favorite shot- Iron Hot, made out at Iron Wolf Ranch and Distillery in Spicewood, Texas.
In October of 2021, MADAM RADAR went back into The Finishing School with Gordy Quist and Steve Christensen to record their newest studio album SPEAKS. It was released to a sold out show July 30th of 2022 at the 04 Center in Austin, TX. Kevin Conner of Austin’s Sun Radio called MADAM RADAR’s single Hands, “The best song to come out of Austin in 2022.”
