Promoter Presents
Madison McFerrin

Throughout her fruitful independent career, spanning three EPs and multiple collaborations, Madison has earned accolades from The New York Times, NPR, The FADER, and Pitchfork, who named her a Rising Artist in 2018. Her genre-bending work has led to Questlove dubbing her early sound “soul-appella.” In addition to a stirring performance on the renowned COLORS Studio platform, McFerrin has also performed at Lincoln Center, Central Park SummerStage and BRIC Celebrate Brooklyn, and shared stages with the likes of De La Soul, Gallant, and The Roots. Off the stage, Madison’s music has been featured in episodes of Comedy Central’s Broad City and HBO’s Random Acts of Flyness. Working at the intersection of artistry and community building, McFerrin co-curated programming for the BRIC Jazz Festival in 2021, and in 2022, aligned her MAD LOVE initiative with the Brooklyn Bridge Park Conservancy to present three installments of Summer Fridays—a series focused on themes of RELEASE, RESTORE & REJOICE with DJs, comedians and musicians providing some much needed space for healing from the collective trauma and grief of the pandemic. Most recently, Madison has performed at the Saint Joseph’s Art Society in San Francisco and Joe’s Pub in New York City to support fundraisers benefiting the National Network of Abortion Funds.

The name Satya means "truth" -- and that's exactly what 22 yr old Oakland artist Satya delivers on her new EP Deep Blue, which tackles themes of love, heartbreak, and healing with striking vulnerability. The genre-bending new EP fuses Folk, Soul, and R&B, and her single Oakland has been featured on KCRW, KEXP, 88.5 and AAA radio stations across the country. Behind the success of the new EP, Satya ended 2022 opening for Smokey Robinson at the Mountain Winery, and performing her first festival at Hardly Strictly Bluegrass in Golden Gate Park. In October she also received a MusicForward/LiveNation LGBTQ+ emerging artists grant. She's excited to return to the site of her first hometown show -- The New Parish -- supporting Madison McFerrin on January 28. For more see Satya's website.
