If there were any doubt about the amazing talents of Madi Diaz, they were most certainly laid to rest Thursday evening at The Sinclair.

Touring behind her sixth full-length release Weird Faith, Diaz and long-time collaborator Adam Popick wove through a set comprised of fan-favorites and new releases—barely a month old—which had the audience swaying and singing along as if they’d been listening to them for years.

Not enough can be said about Diaz’s ability of to fill an entire venue—not only with music, but with emotion—using only minimal instrumentation and a voice capable of not just drawing you in, but sending you soaring. Her ability to blend melancholy with defiant optimism was on full display and the audience responded with overwhelming support at every opportunity.

Opening the evening was Florida-based, singer-songwriter Olivia Barton who certainly won over new fans that evening not only with great songs but also some identifiable tales of misadventures right there in our own Sinclair.

For those who missed it the show, the headlining tour continues through the beginning of April before Diaz joins friend and collaborator Kacey Musgraves as the support for Musgrave’s European tour. Do whatever you can to get out to one of those dates!
