Everything You Wanted to Know About 'You Might Not Like Her' Singer-Songwriter Maddie Zahm

Anyone who's heard singer-songwriter Maddie Zahm's voice—and the powerful message within her songs—knows that she's one to watch in 2022.

After releasing her first viral track "Fat Funny Friend" earlier this year, the Boise-raised, L.A.-based artist has proven she's anything but a one-hit wonder with the followup song "You Might Not Like Her," a profound autobiographical letter to her younger that digs deep into her growth into the person she is today.

This week, Maddie drops her debut EP, also titled You Might Not Like Her, featuring five brilliant songs that put Maddie's rawest truth on display, from discovering her love for herself and embracing her body to embracing her queer identity and coming to terms with her sexuality. We can't wait for the world to hear it—and here's everything we learned about her as our latest Woman Crush Wednesday.
