Benjamin and Joel Madden, also known as The Madden Brothers, hail from the suburbs of Washington D.C. and are known internationally for fronting their band Good Charlotte. The band formed in a garage while the brothers were in high school and signed a major label record deal shortly after. The brothers have not only written chart topping hits for themselves, they can also be found in the credits of over a dozen other artists’ recordings.
In true Madden Brothers fashion, the pair have been a hit in the television world, hosting their own MTv show and residing as judges on The Voice Australia for multiple seasons. With bit parts in several major motion pictures and other TV appearances across the last dozen years, the Maddens don’t stop there.
In 2014 the concept of a greater involvement in the business was cemented with the formation of MDDN, a process driven music management and media company, for artists by artists, with an emphasis on empathy and fairness. There the brothers work with a team of specialists to further the vision of new and established artists.
The Maddens currently split time between residences in New York and Los Angeles, occasionally headlining Good Charlotte tours and large scale festivals. They can be found on a daily basis, ideating and activating concepts and strategies that are changing the face of business as we know it and impacting popular culture on a global scale.
