Mal Madrigal is a unique ensemble of musicians which performs songs written by Stephen Bartolomei. In quieter moods, Mal Madrigal can be stripped down to Stephen's fingerpicked guitar, warm voice, and subtle delivery. At its loudest Mal Madrigal takes the stage as a six-piece band including drummer Eric Ernst (Latitude, Longitude ex. Fullblown, Sound of Rails), vibes and keys player Ben Brodin, guitarist Mike Saklar (No Blood Orphan ex.

Ritual Device, Ravine), multi-instrumentalist Dan McCarthy (McCarthy Trenching, Mayday) and a rotating group of bass players. Framed by this collection of instruments, homemade amplifiers and effects, each member carves his own sonic niche, all buttressed by Ernst's formidable and dynamic percussion. Such diverse musicianship yields an impressive live show, both sonically and visually. Nuanced, engaging, and eclectic all serve to describe the sound of Mal Madrigal.

Mal Madrigal is self-reliant and principled in its "do it yourself" work ethic. The band spent late nights at a local guitar store recording a collection of more than 30 songs. The building, built in the late 1800s, was an inspiring environment to track the songs live to 1/2" analog tape. The majority of the recordings were made in this way, with overdubs done on the computer when necessary.

Mistakes were kept, songs left pure, and sounds unadulterated by technology. Mal Madrigal has shared the stage singer/songwriters and rock bands alike including Nina Nastasia, Eric Bachmann, Vic Chesnutt, the Medications, Ladyfinger, Back When, Shiny Around the Edges, Mayday, Simon Joyner, Scout Niblett, Damien Jurado, Edith Frost, Jesse Sykes and many other like-minded artists.
