Try by Madison McFerrin

Written by on December 13, 2018

This week’s Song of the Week comes from singer/songwriter Madison McFerrin out of Brooklyn, NY.

In December of 2016, she quietly introduced her soulful take on a cappella to the world when she self-released Finding Foundations: Vol. I.  After one listen, tastemaking DJ, Gilles Peterson, snatched up her standout track, “No Time to Lose,” for his Brownswood Bubblers compilation. 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.”

In February of 2018, she gave her listeners more of her distinctive sound that Questlove dubbed “soul-appella” when she self-released Finding Foundations: Vol. II.

Beyond the stage, Madison’s one-of-a-kind vocals can be heard in episodes of Comedy Central’s Broad City and HBO’s Random Acts of Flyness.

This month, Madison plans to build upon this momentum by pairing her timeless voice with the modern production of her brother, Taylor McFerrin, on her new project, You + I, which quickly had its lead single, and our single of the week “TRY” rack up 560K+ views in her debut COLORS session.
