Day Cart is a musical project focusing on the song writing of Graham Madden. Madden, a 22 year old engineering student of Simon Fraser University has been harvesting a passion for music since childhood and is applying that energy into his latest musical works. The beginning of his on-going music journey took off at the age of 8, when he began playing the piano. He developed his musical theory and an ear for melody within a short time before picking up a saxophone for the next few years, further extending his skills as a young music-maker. In high school, Graham experienced a musical growth with like-minded musicians when he enrolled in jazz and concert band. This atmosphere demonstrated to Graham, the significance in the unity of a group of performers. At the time of his sixteenth birthday, Graham was given his first guitar, and did not hesitate to begin writing his own songs with this newly acquired instrument. His keen sense of sound and dedication contributed to his rapid ability to learn the chords of his guitar. There was no turning back for him.
During Graham's music explorations, he has demonstrated his talent in several bands, while his focus remained on song writing and incorporating the sounds of classic rock with a newer indie, folk flavour. With a background in engineering, his creative attention often shapes a unique muse that revolves around lyrical form and melody. Graham has made it his responsibility as a musician to study the proper techniques of recording music to capture the essence of his sound. His devotion to music, through performing and composing, is present wherever he goes.
