Madison McFerrin is a singer, songwriter based in Brooklyn, NY. In December 2016, her solo debut EP, Finding Foundations: Vol. I, introduced her R&B/soul 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 latest installment of his Brownswood Bubblers series. This landed her radio play on Jamie Cullum’s BBC Radio show and the chance to perform at the inaugural Arroyo Seco Weekend music festival at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena. In early 2018, Madison plans to give her growing community of listeners more of what they love with Finding Foundations: Vol. II.
