Recording artist Madeleine Chaplain may be based in Melbourne now, but she has drawn on her Cloncurry roots for new release ‘The Flood’.
All proceeds of the song will go to Cloncurry-based charity Sisters of the North.
Chaplain grew up on a cattle station north of Cloncurry, where her family was directly affected by the flooding in February that wiped out hundreds of thousands of cattle and sheep in the region.
“The bush will always be where I belong,” Chaplain said.
“My family kept me informed as the devastation unfolded. Being that I am a songwriter, it’s no surprise that these strong feelings of sadness and helplessness produced a song.”
‘The Flood’, by her band Madeleine’s Castle, is available for purchase through CD Baby and will soon be available on iTunes.
“This natural disaster is not a prominent topic of conversation in the city,” Chaplain said.
“I want to generate awareness and urge people to help in any small way they can.
“‘The Flood’ by Madeleine’s Castle has been a collaborative effort. It’s about accepting the cards we’ve been dealt, comradery in tragedy and never relinquishing hope.”
