Denver musician Madeline Johnston recently released “Forever,” her second album as Midwife.

It’s dedicated to her friend and collaborator Colin Ward, who died in 2018. The record is already getting praise from NPR Music and Bandcamp for its haunting and ethereal sound that Johnston describes as “heaven metal.”

Johnston appeared on Colorado Matters today to talk “Forever,” why she sings into a telephone receiver and how she’s passing the time while the live music industry is shut down.

Listen to the interview above, then watch her perform a live concert today at 5 p.m. on Midwife’s Facebook page.
