‘girl-boy_Madyx is the stage name that singer-songwriter Michelle Blanchard performs under. While she does have other musicians to help bring her music to life, Blanchard is the focal point of the outfit. The resulting musical ensemble (which also includes Pablo Martins on Guitar and Dakota Issacson on Drums to go along with the vocals and keyboards from Blanchard) brings together a pop-rock base with other musical influences to create a sound that would fit on any current Top 40 radio format.  Michelle Blanchard is one of many songwriters who have been influenced by the likes of songwriters such as Pink, Katy Perry and other performers who aren’t afraid to speak their minds and/or go in their own direction instead of being followers. “Girl Boy” from Madyx is a modern-day rallying song for those who fit into the LGBT+ community. The track begins with a musical approach that brings to mind music from the eighties and, more specifically, New Wave music. In fact, the track’s feel brings to mind the eighties version of the track “Tainted Love” which was made famous by British band Soft Cell. “Girl Boy” from Madyx contains a strong synthesizer feel that adds to the New Wave feel of the music. And while there is a strong New Wave feel to the track, there is also a strong Punk undertone that brings to mind songs from Pink. The combination of New Wave and Punk in the track’s music creates a musical feel with a driving beat with an energy level that seems to help emphasize the emotional feel of the lyrics to the track. While Michelle Blanchard and the rest of Madyx released their Worth the Risk album back in 2015, they have been releasing singles every-so-often since then. “Girl Boy” shows off the different mindsets of Michelle Blanchard as a singer-songwriter and is also a good indication of what the band can do.
