Singer/songwriter/musician Chris Crain was a prodigy who began playing at age 7. But the Milwaukee native didn’t plan a life in music. However, music called him, and he has written and produced over 100 songs, bravely overcoming brachial plexus palsy, a birth defect that affects the nerves that control the muscles of the arm. Crain has developed a fan base in the Midwestern U.S., and with his latest single, he’ll likely expand his reach around the world. “Madam Queen” is a jazzy soul midtempo where Crain expresses his love and respect for a special woman. On his live version of the song, which was recorded at Charlie’s Music Factory in Milwaukee, Crain wraps his Bobby Womack-like vocals around the infectious tune with the understated bandwork behind him. “Madam Queen” has the feel of a song fans will listen to for some time to come. A melody and message worth celebrating. Listen to “Madam Queen” below.
