San Francisco-born Madison McFerrin, daughter of Bobby McFerrin, is a cross-genre singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist celebrated for her blend of a cappella, electronic pop, jazz and soul.
McFerrin began her career a cappella, creating a distinctive style of looped vocal layers dubbed “soul appella” by artist and producer Questlove. McFerrin released two a cappella-based EPs before 2019’s You + I, featuring extended instrumentation and co-produced with brother Taylor McFerrin. This year saw the release of her first full-length, the essentially self-produced I Hope You Can Forgive Me.
Raised in a musical home, she already knew at the age of five that she wanted to be a singer. After high school, McFerrin attended Boston’s Berklee College of Music where she focused on songwriting, influenced by The Beatles, Erykah Badu and Bob Dylan. During this time she formed the funk band Cosmodrome. After graduation, she moved to Brooklyn, played in the electronic duo Binary Soul and toured with father Bobby.
Madison has long since stepped out of her father’s shadow and now this brilliant voice talent and songwriter is finally coming to Fasching with her band and boxes!
