Finding Foundations

One-woman A cappella soul-jazz salon

When not touring as a featured vocalist alongside her father, the legendary Bobby McFerrin, Madison McFerrin is busy making a name for herself and has quickly become a force to be reckoned with in the contemporary music scene, infusing old-school soul into the complexity of modern jazz with ease. With only a loop machine, a microphone, and a hypnotizing voice - be ready to get blown away by her astounding talent.

The event will be held at a boutique gallery on Upper East Side with artworks and decór by Mackenzie-Childs, where artist Andy Warhol used to hold his early exhibitions in the 50s.

To dust off some lesser-known treasures of the Tin Pan Alley era, 'American treasure' Rachael Price of Lake Street Dive and duo partner Vilray graced us at our second season opener with their voices of gold and vintage gears from 1930's, to ring in the new year with a handful of classic tunes as well as new works that would be at home in the same pantheon, which took place few floors above where George Gershwin used to live!
