British born James Maddock was first recognized in the U.S as leader of the band Wood. Their debut album, Songs From Stamford Hill, produced a Top 5 Triple A hit (“Stay You”) and remains a fan favorite 10 years later. In 2009 Maddock released the exquisite collection of songs, Sunrise On Avenue C, for which he won the 2010-11 NY Music Award for Best Americana Album. Maddock followed Sunrise in 2011 with Wake Up and Dream. NYC’s WFUV 2011 Listener’s Poll named Wake Up and Dream (#13) as one of the top albums of 2011. The Mike Scott (Waterboys) co-written single “Beautiful Now” was named the #9 Song of the Year in the same poll. Maddock has become a mainstay on non-comm and satellite radio and continues to tour extensively in the U.S and Europe. His new single, “My Old Neighborhood” is available on iTunes.
James Maddock will help bring Maplewoodstock to a crescendo with a 7:15 pm Saturday night set right before co-headliner Chris Berry and Panjea.
