Madi Diaz Announces April East Coast Dates

Madi Diaz spent the second half of 2014 on the road in support of her latest album Phantom, both headling and opening for such artists as Echosmith, Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr., X Ambassadors and Fitz and the Tantrums, and creating scores of new fans along the way. She ended the year with a headline show to a packed crowd at the Troubadour in her newly adopted home of Los Angeles. After taking a well deserved couple of months off in 2015, Madi will once again hit the stage this April for a short run of east coast dates starting in Boston on April 20. She’ll also make a special appearance on VH1’s Big Morning Buzz on April 22.

Listen To “Mess” From Phantom Here: 

Phantom (Sept 30) was recorded in Madi’s newly adopted home of Los Angeles, produced by Nick Ruth (Mikky Ekko, Active Child) and mixed by John O’Mahony (Coldplay, Metric, Oh Land) at NYC’s famed Electric Lady Studios. The album’s 11 tracks expand upon Madi’s brand of sophisticated indie pop songs, providing a soundtrack for adventurous escapades on sweaty dance floors with old friends or late night introspective drives under a canopy of stars. Underneath the effervescent pop, her lyrics reveal an emotional through line.

Madi Diaz Tour Dates:
Mon, April 20 Cambridge, MA @ Middle East
Tue, April 21 Brooklyn, NY @ Rough Trade
Thur, April 23 Uncasvlle, CT @ Wolf Den at Mohegan Sun Resort

Nettwerk Music Group is pleased to announce the signing of singer-songwriter Lùisa to its European label roster. The Hamburg-born artist impresses with her smoky voice, signature guitar lines and expressive compositions. The end of May will see the European release of her new album Never Own, on which she combines her folk roots with electronic mysticism, strong melodies with headstrong pop. Dancing between quiet introspection and stormy outbursts, the artistic progress of the 22-year-old can also be read in her vivid lyrics, which are sung in English, French and Italian.

The album was recorded both inside an old light ship in London and in a country house at the shores of the North Sea. It was produced by her band and the young and talented producer Filippo Cimatti.

Partnering with Sirius XM’s “BPM Bender,” Page premieres first single, “Open Heart” featuring singer/songwriter Lissie, whose past collaboration received acclaim when the Deadmau5 remix of their 2008 effort “The Longest Road,” earned Page the first of his GRAMMY nods.

“There’s something special that happens when we get together in the studio,” says Page of his long-time partner. “We somehow get these songs that just cut through the clutter.”
