Born just outside of Chicago, IL in the dawn of the new millennium, Singer-Songwriter Madi Davis has become a North Texas local at heart. Madi has performed at countless venues, released two EP‘s and her Debut album, ‘Above The Waves‘, independently. Pharrell Williams once described her sound as “Urban Folk” in 2015. For now, Madi has taken to labelling her sound Neo-Folk, which encapsulates her love for classic folk writing styles and Neo-Soul/R&B melodies and melismas.
Her vocal prowess and multi-genre influenced writing style naturally evoke comparisons to artists from various musical eras, showcasing a timeless quality that resonates with listeners of all backgrounds. Madi draws inspiration from a diverse spectrum of musical legends. Early in her career, Madi was enchanted by the poetic brilliance of Joni Mitchell and the soul-stirring melodies of the great women songwriters from the ’70s. She also finds kinship with contemporary genre-bending artists such as James Blake, Caroline Polachek, and Moses Sumney. This eclectic blend of influences infuses her music with a rich, ever-evolving tapestry of sounds that emanate even during her acoustic performances.
Madi Davis’s journey in the music industry is marked by a series of remarkable milestones, including: Her time on The Voice where she soared to the top 6 in the ninth season of NBC’s hit show, gaining international recognition for her exceptional vocal talent. Performing during the halftime show for the Panthers vs. Buccaneers NFL game, and delivering a stirring rendition of the national anthem at the Packers vs. Giants game in 2016. A Debut Album tour performance at the Rockwood Music Hall, and subsequent concerts at Paul McCartney Auditorium and The Zanzibar Club in Liverpool, England left a lasting impression on audiences worldwide.
