Aussie producer roth Maddox has become a phenomenon in the music industry, making great music, making stuff happen and earning millions of dollars, his music is everywhere.
But for some of his fans, he is the guy they call a celebrity.
“I’ve seen the media and I’ve seen my fans, it’s not good.
You don’t go to gigs and see how people are talking about you, it doesn’t work,” Maddox said.
For some fans, that is the only way to know how much Maddox makes.
But the 24-year-old, who is from Queensland, has found that it is far easier to make money by being the subject of online posts than in real life.
He said his success is not in the fact he is making money off his music but rather that his fans are.
His biggest hit, “Sisters”, is out on Spotify today.
Maddox said the online world is not only about making money but also about the message.
My goal is to help the people that are struggling to survive, he said.
“To do it through the music.
That’s what my main focus is on.”
Madden, who has been making music since he was 12, said he had always been the underdog.
Growing up in Queensland, he had to be the bad kid in the class, but when he turned 18, he was invited to a concert by a friend of his father, who was also an engineer at Sony.
As he watched the crowd go wild, Maddox was instantly hooked.
I remember thinking ‘this is cool, this is cool’ and thinking ‘how am I going to make this sound good’, he said, adding he was also influenced by his older brother who made music with his brother, who had also done the same at Sony, and later joined Maddox’s father at Sony and produced music for the likes of Beyonce and Drake.
Since then, Maddcox has had a number of friends who were also making music, but it took him several years to get his own label.
In his free time, Maddocks music is streamed to millions of people on YouTube.
Most of the fans he has had contact with have said they are not fans of his music.
While he is still making music in his spare time, he says he is doing so because he loves it.
There are other things that Maddox is working on that he has been inspired by.
Like the idea of having a ‘pitch meeting’ with his fans.
When he is not making music for fans, Maddock is making videos for his new podcast, the Maddox Show, where he gives a voice to people struggling with depression and other mental health issues.
Some fans who had reached out to him about the podcast said he would make their life easier if he listened to their story.
That’s what I do, he told the ABC, adding that he also loves working with his music video director, Ryan Poulter.
After a few months, Maddoch said he was getting ready to do his first video for Maddox.
Poulter said he has already had some people call him to ask if he would like to do another video.
They’ve been so supportive, he added.
It’s a really special time for me, he wrote in an Instagram post.
“I’m so grateful for the opportunity.
The music industry has given me everything.
Thank you everyone who has given this a chance.”
It was the day Maddox and Poulters first met.
At the time, it was not Maddox that Poulster was making the music videos for, but his producer, Daniel Fennell.
Daniel was Maddoxs best friend from his childhood and he was impressed by his ability to make music for music videos.
So when Maddox showed up at Poults studio in the Brisbane suburb of Mount Isa, he decided to ask to do the music video for a track from the podcast, “Lonely Hearts”.
It would be his first time making music video, but Maddox had already made one before.
On his first day on the set, Maddon had a few questions about the process.
What makes your music special?
I just think that you’re always thinking, I think I’m going to have fun, he replied.
And I think you’re going to enjoy it, he continued.
I love this, he concluded.
But he also wanted to know more about the video.
What’s your story?
You have a song, and you’re just doing it, and the song just goes on and on, he responded.
And you’re making money.
So what’s the deal?
You have a good track, you know, and then suddenly you’ve got
