A one-time theater student at the University of Nebraska, John Madden transferred to the University of Colorado and graduated with a B.A. in psychology and became a law student. Then music beckoned in the guise of a group put together by Bryan Sennett, ultimately called the Serendipity Singers, who needed Madden's talents as a multi-instrumentalist.
