Madison McFerrin plays Cafe 939
December 7 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm EST
Based in New York City, Madison McFerrin is bringing a refreshing take to a cappella music. In December 2016, she introduced the world to her soul-infused a cappella songs with her debut CD Finding Foundations: Vol. I, which was received very positively from critics and new listeners. This led up to her sold out debut show at Joe’s Pub, which the New York Times praised as “showing wonderful vocal dexterity, deftly swerving from sharp, clearly enunciated staccato bursts to fluttery, free-form melismata.” Her follow up release Finding Foundations Vol. II in 2018 solidified McFerrin’s sound as “soul-appella”, a term coined by Questlove. In addition to the success of her recorded works, McFerrin is known for her magnificent performances. After her SXSW debut last year, DJ Anne Litt noted, “There’s some sort of joy and beauty in the way that she performs that really drew me in all that much more.”
With vocals featured in episodes of Comedy Central’s Broad City and HBO’s Random Acts of Flyness, McFerrin’s music is swiftly reaching a widespread audience. Her latest project You + I adds elements of modern electronic production to her soaring vocals.
The show starts at 8:00 p.m. EDT and you can stream it here.
