Berkeley-based musician Madeline Tasquin has been singing all her life -- first back in Canada with her opera-singing mother and gold-mining father, and later here in the Bay Area with bands like Whiskerman and Antioquia. Now she’s working on a new LP with her band, Madeline Tasquin Trading Company, and getting ready for a European tour. We caught up with her for this episode of Bay Area Beats.
