Madelyn Baillio

A Vocal That Will Melt Your Heart

Larry Kerchner’s “Can’t Stay Away From You” has been described as a pop ballad, with strong Jazz and R&B influences. Brought to life by Madelyn Baillio’s lush, convincing vocal, this gem of a song is a shoe-in to become a new American standard. Michael Feinstein, renowned vocalist, pianist, archivist, and undisputed foremost authority on the Great American Songbook, says of this recording, “The combination of Madelyn and ‘Can’t Stay From You’ is sheer perfection!” — high praise from a man who knows singers, songs, and the people who write them! Produced and arranged by Kerchner, with sequencing by Daryl Kojak, one can’t help but be swept up in its beautiful sadness.  

“Can’t Stay Away From You” has everything a great song needs to be a standard — a strong melody set in a masterful chord progression and a lyric that will tear your heart out. Kerchner’s choice of young Madelyn Baillio to communicate his latest tune is a match made in torch song heaven. This is a recording that will easily connect across the board to fans of pop,  jazz, or R&B.
