Shim
When Shim Moore first began writing solo music, a piece of early career advice stuck with him.
He recalls, “Somebody once told me, ‘When you’re making music, the difference between good and great is blood. If you bleed on a record, people are going to hear it. If you don’t, people are going to hear it too’.”
Truth is, Shim’s blood courses through every song he’s ever written and recorded. Millions of fans worldwide connected to his songwriting, spirit, and soul across four full-length albums from the RIAA platinum-certified Sick Puppies—which he founded in 1997. Following his split from the group during 2015, the Australia-born and Los Angeles-based singer, songwriter, and producer did what he does best: write.
Madame Mayhem
Madame Mayhem
Those who yearn for the electric catharsis of loud guitars, driving rhythms, hypnotic
hooks, and the strength of shared experience have a new muse in Madame Mayhem.
The Manhattan born singer/songwriter and burgeoning rock icon-in-the-making has
weaponized the darkness, turning it into a rallying cry for all who were ever cast
aside. Songs like “Broken,” “War You Started,” and “So Wrong” are equal parts
timeless sentiment, bareknuckle fury, and energized urgency. Madame Mayhem’s
songs rival the best of Modern Rock, early ‘90s emotive-grunge, and nü-metal angst.
As her name suggests, Madame Mayhem takes charge of her own anxiety, hurt, and
alienation, crushing it with sheer force of will, then channeling the remaining ether
into pulse-pounding anthems, instantly connecting with anyone who has struggled.
Madame Mayhem doesn’t fit comfortably in any one box, shifting seamlessly from pile
driving to almost precious with skilled frenzy. In fact, Madame Mayhem boasts the
arena-ready thrill of Disturbed, the soaring chest-pounding sensibility of Breaking
Benjamin, the brazen, clever, and rad attitude of Pat Benatar, all delivered with the
grand theatricality of Iron Maiden and the operatic thunder of Evanescence.
An acolyte of heartfelt melody from a young age, the classically trained singer, pianist,
and guitarist studied at the Manhattan School of Music and Frost School of Music at
the University of Miami. Broadway may have beckoned, but the pull of hard rock was
stronger. Pairing her well heeled chops and personal theatricality with raw sonic
force Madame Mayhem quickly commanded attention from iHeart Radio, VH1’s That
Metal Show and a powerhouse team of luminaries from the rock world.
She’s shared stages with Sevendust, Memphis May Fire, Fozzy, and Doro. Across three
exceedingly well-received albums – Ready for Me (2017), Now You Know (2015), and
White Noise (2012) – Madame Mayhem worked with Russ “Satchel” Parrish (Steel
Panther), Corey Lowery (Stuck Mojo), Ron “Bumblefoot” Thal (ex-Guns N’ Roses), and
Troy McLawhorn (Evanescence) to name just a few. Her 2019 single was co-written
with Keith Wallen (Breaking Benjamin) and features her longtime friends and
collaborators Billy Sheehan (Mr. Big) and Ray Luzier (Korn).
Her music has taken her into some of the world’s best-known venues, like B.B. King
Blues Club in New York, The Roxy in Hollywood, and a Grammy week stint at
Nashville’s Bluebird Café, to name just a few. Loudwire premiered her “Ready for Me”
music video. She’s garnered very positive press in Revolver and Guitar World. The
buzz has spread overseas as well, demonstrated by profiles in long-running
tastemaker publications like Rock Hard, Aardschok, and Metal Hammer magazine.
As the fashion press observed, the look is the medium and the music is the message.
The self-expression inherent in goth and glam are just more colors on Madame
Mayhem’s artistic palette. Black eyeliner and black leather; pink lips and sharp spikes;
it’s part of an arsenal as timeless as the New York Dolls or The Runaways.
There’s no escaping the darkness. Life is full of unpleasant surprises. Real and
imagined disasters, from outside forces and from within, threaten at every turn. But
those who learn to control and command the chaos will triumph. This rock n’ roll
badass invites each audience to become the Madame of their own Mayhem. As ASX
declared, “She’s aggressive, outrageous, and operatic… And she’s ready for you.”
