Soulful R&B upstart Madison McFerrin -- the daughter to Jazz titan Bobby McFerrin -- has been one of the most promising new faces within the genre over the past year. After releasing her Finding Foundations: Vol. I and Vol. II EPs last year, she followed with standalone singles “No Room” and “TRY" earlier this year, once again gracing audiences with her gleaming vocals. Now the Brooklyn-based artist has offered up her most promising project yet, her blissful You + I EP.
The project remains soaked with poignant synth work and blissful billows, whereby her graceful vocals relish alongside eloquent chord progressions and warm a capellas. She infuses Jazz and Motown era soul throughout, but doesn’t do so in a way that explicitly calls on a time before her — it feels contemporary, clad with voluptuously-rendered R&B sensibilities.
You can stream You + I below.

I’m so excited to finally share “You + I” with y’all!! It’s been such a journey getting here, but I feel so blessed to have such an incredible community of people supporting me along the way. After me and @taylormcferrin made “Fallin’” in Spring of 2017, I knew I wanted his sound to be throughout the project. And wheeew chile it was WORTH??THE??WAIT?? I love him so much and am so grateful we finally got to work together on a project. I also want to give a special thank you to @balamgarcia, my dear friend from college, who mastered the EP (+ @dingley who recorded & mastered “Know You Better”). At the end of the day, I’m just trying make music that makes my community proud, I hope I did that. This EP is for my grandma, for my family, for Fred Hampton, and for all of you, my #TRYtribe. Thank you, I love you all. “You + I” is officially available on all streaming platforms, catch the wave live in a city near you ?
