CROSS-POLLINATION CLXXIII - TUES JAN 8TH - 7:30-10 PM
MADI DIAZ
FLYING MACHINES


Skin and Bone, Madi's début solo album, is filled with songs rich in precocious wisdom, unassuming poetry, and melodic sophistication. Without paying direct homage to a particular time or place, the record evokes the locations of Diaz's youth: the wide-open spaces of the Amish countryside, the unsettling thrills and daunting possibilities of Philly's urban jungle - and the longing and loneliness common to both.

Diaz's powerful voice, both uniquely engaging and steeped in rock tradition, calls to mind such icons of Americana as Shawn Colvin, Sheryl Crow, and Patty Griffin. Madi Diaz has begun making her bones on the roots rock scene.

Flying Machines hail from the international melting pot that is New York . The band’s songs and style first evoke music you know and love and then take it somewhere you have never been. Flying Machines combine classic sounds pioneered by rock’s superstars with fresh new elements of 2008. They channel influences from Queen, The Police, The Strokes, Weezer and The Jam and Elvis Costello. By harking to these timeless rock/pop staples, Flying Machines have found their own unique musical identity. . . Flying Machines are the first band, discovered by Yahoo Music and signed to the new music enterprise partnership between Yahoo and Universal Television Networks (USA/NBC/Sci Fi/Bravo).
