17-Year-Old Rocker Madison Rose Hits YouTube and iTunes With Her First Single, the Poignant Power Ballad 'Teenage Runaway'

The Track From Madison's Explosive Debut 'Aftershock' Was Co-Written With Her Brother "Justyn The Stuntman" and Famed Rock Guitarist Gary Hoey -- Who Also Co-Produced the Full Length Album With Madison

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - Aug 19, 2011) - More rock fans than ever will be feeling the explosive vibrations of Aftershock -- 17-year-old rocker Madison Rose's ( debut album -- thanks to the release of her first single "Teenage Runaway," whose compelling video makes its debut on YouTube this week as the track is added to the iTunes library.

"Teenage Runaway" is an emotional power ballad that Madison wrote about her experiences trying to help a self-destructive friend. Madison feels that "most people can relate to the emotional struggles that happen in our teen years and the feelings of isolation and loneliness that make us want to run away not just physically, but emotionally as well." The message she hopes to convey with her song is that "there are people who care about you, even if it's a friend, you just have to open your eyes and see that they are there for you."

Madison wrote the lyrics, and the music was co-written with her brother and musical partner Justyn, who is dubbed "The Stuntman" for the many hats he wears as a songwriter, bassist, guitarist, mentor, as well as famed rock guitarist Gary Hoey -- who also co-produced Aftershock.

With 16 solo albums and five Top 20 Billboard hits since the early '90s, Hoey has made numerous lists as one of the 100 Greatest Guitar Players of All Time. Over the years, Hoey has toured and traded licks with the likes of Brian May (Queen), Peter Frampton, Foreigner, Joe Satriani, The Doobie Brothers, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Eric Johnson, Steve Vai, Bret Michaels, Rick Derringer and Deep Purple.

Comparing her favorably to Joan Jett, Pat Benatar and Lita Ford, Hoey says, "Producing Madison was a joy. Her work ethic and drive were amazing. To see such a young artist come up with such great songs is rare. She's gorgeous and talented -- and she can rock! Her new record is going to blow people's minds."
