Madison Metcalf BIO
Music holds such an important place in my heart. I’ve been singing since I was able to talk. It is a way I spread the love of Jesus and express what is in my heart. I’m so blessed to have close friends and family as my band members. I cannot wait to see what God has planned next!
Florencia and the Feeling BIO
Johnson City, Tennessee-based pop-funk fusion band Florencia & the Feeling independently released its debut album, Birthday, in March 2023, which Vents Magazine called, “pure, unadulterated fun”. Since its conception in April 2021, the five-piece has been impressing listeners with its upbeat funky grooves, heartfelt songwriting, and all-around good vibes, loading its music with four-part harmonies, hints of jazz, and Latin roots. The five members of the band, Florencia Rusinol (lead vox), Noah Wise (guitar), Isaac Ratliff (keys), Nick Castro (bass) & Austin Herron (drums), fuse together the many genres in all of their backgrounds – funk, jazz, Nu Soul, jam, pop, indie rock, roots, and more – to create a distinctive blend. This fusion has earned the group recognition and esteemed performances, such as the Bristol Rhythm & Roots Reunion in Tennessee/Virginia, Shakori Hills Grassroots Festival in North Carolina, and an opening slot for The Mavericks. Radio Bristol praised the band’s “tight rhythmic jams and groovy guitar riffs,” while the Bristol Herald Courier called their sound “happy music” and “joyful noise,” applauding that “their songs compel smiles on faces and dancing from feet.” In February 2022, Florencia & the Feeling crowdsourced over $10,000 to create their dream album. Their long-awaited album, Birthday, is debuting in March 2024 & touring in support of the release. Check out quintet’s tour dates & music on their website, and you can find Florencia's music on Spotify, Apple Music, YouTube, or any other music listening platform. www.florenciaandthefeeling.com | @florenciaandthefeeling
