Heartfelt. Inspiring. Authentic. Real. These are but only a handful of traits that describe singer/songwriter Madia and her music. Her sweet, bird-like vocals are pure – silky and smooth with undiluted grace – but she writes songs that cover the roughest and most honest of emotions. The gospel and R&B influences are there, but somehow she draws them together to make something new. She’s clearly not a gaudy diva, but what she lacks in excessive vanity, she makes up for in thoughtful, meticulous songcrafting. If you’ve heard her perform live, you’ve heard something real. Madia’s soul-bearing ways will leave an indelible mark on those who choose to listen.
