LA-based pop starlet Madi Wolf's croons about the SoCal life on her new song "Hollywood Blvd."
“Hollywood Blvd” will be included on Madi's forthcoming EP Glare, due out this August. The 18-year-old co-wrote every song on the EP, which she says is an honest reflection of her personal journey. Through her music, the self-described “old soul” sings with raw passion, whether about young love, calling out someone who treated her badly or, like in "Hollywood Blvd" which exclusively premieres on BreatheHeavy.com today (July 1), the nerves and excitement of moving to Los Angeles to pursue her dreams.

"East to West coast travel is what ignited this song," Madi tells BH. "It was a pivotal time in my life. I was evolving as a pop artist and began working with multiple writers and producers."
Some of these award-winning songwriters and producers includes Rob Fusari (Lady Gaga), Jim Jonsin (Beyonce, Usher), Luney Tunez (Rihanna) and Justin Gray (Mariah Carey, Amy Winehouse). But not for "Hollywood Blvd," Madi wrote the song solo.
She adds the "musical lifestyle and culture of California" was a profound influence. The song is a vulnerable peek into the mind of the budding pop star.
"Embedded memories were in my head," she said. "Once I arrived home I felt inspired to do what I love most. The singer/songwriter in me emerged. I sat down in my living room with just my guitar and the lyrics began flowing. They came so naturally because this was all so fresh in mind and authentic to me."
"I want people to be able to open a window and view a little bit of my soul to see who I am and what it took to get where I am today," she continued. "'Hollywood Blvd' is about pursuing your dreams and stopping at nothing until you reach your goals.
She adds: "I want listeners to take perseverance from the song. Music is everything that I am and at the time I wrote 'Hollywood Blvd,' I was overcoming many obstacles in both life and music. I want all of my music to inspire people and encourage them to fearlessly go after what they seek."
"Even the most daunting."
