About HappyTokes

Madison Ortiz better known as HappyTokes, is from Detroit, Michigan.

Since her youth, Madison was involved with community and school performances ranging from choir, musical theatre to marching band. After graduating with a BFA in Advertising Design, she found a passion for playing Baritone Ukulele and became a regular at Gilda’s Club in Metro Detroit.

In 2012 HappyTokes wrote “Friend Like You” to cheer up a friend who was facing difficult times. With a little help from her other friends – The 75,000 member strong HappyTokesTribe – HappyTokes’ music began spreading rapidly across social media.

In 2016 STACE heard “Friend Like You” (Car Version) on Instagram and invited Madison to record it professionally. That invite resulted in the two collaborating and releasing a remix the following year.

With an eclectic sound ranging from pop-country to R&B, HappyTokes has found her voice and she’s ready to share it with the world.
