"Madam Jules is the journey of addiction, depression, bad choices and lessons learned. Reflective material written by Julia Mahlstadt out of Des Moines, Iowa. Teamed up with hometown musician/producer, Donnie Mengwasser (660 Records), they took Madam Jules' original music, written with a guitar and her voice, and created the feeling and emotion Madam Jules is conveying in her conviction. Enjoy, reflect, relate, connect. UPDATE: Madam Jules is proud to announce that we now have a full live band with the music. Playing local shows in Iowa for now with hopes to go on a midwest tour. Thank you and hope to see you at the next show!"

"To say that Madam Jules is the best new band you haven?t heard yet can’t be quite accurate, considering that the group has played all over the metro and is currently ranked as one of the very top bands of Des Moines on ReverbNation. So let’s just say that if you aren’t listening yet, you should be.
"Whether Madam Jules is an old favorite or a pleasant new-to-you surprise, it is indisputable that lead singer and songwriter, Julia Mahlstadt, is a star on the rise. With her poetic lyrics and earthy voice, Mahlstadt is the heart and soul of Madam Jules."
