My name is Lorie Madsen, and welcome to my music. This is a place for soul searchers and wisdom seekers. I'm a mystic singer-songwriter and recording artist who is turning tarot cards into songs. I am singing the Fool's Journey by exploring the relationship between frequency and energy. And I intend to write the whole deck - 78 songs - one for each tarot card.
Divination is leading the way to my highest potential. I collaborate with my producer, Brian Daly, of DNA Music Labs in Madison, WI, USA. Together, we are crafting an innovative collection of dreamy songs with elements of pop, folk, rock, and new-age musical genres. Each song represents a different tarot card in the Rider-Waite-Smith tradition upright position.
I knew from a young age I was meant to write songs. However, I have been continuously knocked down by migraines and other health problems. My disabilities victimized me for decades until I learned my purpose. I realized that my two greatest passions - music and mysticism - were meant to be combined. With tarot cards as my guide, I am healing from the traumas of my life while also creating something extraordinary.
A major health scare in 2022 drove me to officially launch The Music Tarot that same year. Since then, I've been slowly building a following of listeners and fans. I work in my home studio and do not play live shows. I dedicate most of my time and resources to writing, recording, and producing in an effort to finish all the songs. I chose to publicize my journey of well-being and creation because shared pain is lessened, shared joy is increased, and shared healing is peace.
