Madison McFerrin

Line up: Madison McFerrin (vocals)

Madison McFerrin is a singer-songwriter based in Brooklyn, NY. In December 2016, her solo debut EP, Finding Foundations: Vol. I, introduced her soulful take on a cappella to the world. Critics and crowds quickly took note. Leading up to her sold out show at Joe’s Pub, the New York Times remarked how her sound “shows wonderful vocal dexterity, deftly swerving from sharp, clearly enunciated staccato bursts to fluttery, free-form melismata.”

After one listen, tastemaking DJ, Gilles Peterson, snatched up her standout track, “No Time to Lose,” for his Brownswood Bubblers compilation. She followed that up with last February’s release of Finding Foundations: Vol. II, which gave her listeners more of what they love and earned her more critical praise. Most noteworthy is a Pitchfork Rising Artist profile that highlighted how her style offers an “understated, compelling testament to the power and dexterity of the human voice.” On the heels of her debut European tour that featured sold out shows in London and Barcelona, Madison eagerly anticipates sharing new music in 2019. But first awaits her appearance at Mondriaan Jazz Festival 2019.
