Counterfeit Madison

Counterfeit Madison is the musical manifestation of Nigerian Columbus, Ohio resident Sharon Udoh. She plays with a variety of folks; the ones pictured above are Seth Daily on drums and Adam Hardy on bass.

She is a versatile artist; her funky yet classical piano-playing and gospel-tinged voice peppered with the occasional bursts of ecstasy make for an experience that is often described as surpassing genre in the warmest and most welcoming of ways.

Her magnetic performances and poignant songwriting leave you with goosebumps, tears, a soulful two-step, and everything in between. Intelligently unpretentious, emotionally explorative, and powerfully vulnerable, Counterfeit Madison is simply unforgettable.

Counterfeit Madison is grateful Allah, Buddha, Jesus, Mary, Joseph, Shiva, the earth, the sun, the sky, the sea, Joseph Smith, Poseidon, Zeus, Africa, and several other deities for the opportunity to release her third album, Opposable Thumbs, on Anyway Records. Her first two albums, along with a live Nina Simone cover album, can be found on on her Bandcamp.

You can check Counterfeit out on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, ACPA, and in real life somewhere drinking coffee and avoiding cops.
