Rage, confusion, despair, self-deception, and introspection, Madi Diaz cycles through the full spectrum of emotions on 'History of a Feeling'. It's an album that undeniably marks Diaz's status as a first-rate songwriter, a craft she's spent years refining, and one wherein Diaz establishes herself as an artist capable of distilling profound feelings with ease. Diaz pulls from a range of folk, country, and pop leanings, she is as much influenced by Patty Griffin and Lori McKenna as she is the sonics of PJ Harvey and directness of Kathleen Hanna. On 'History of a Feeling', the Nashville based songwriter comes to terms with the dissolution of a meaningful relationship. By the end of it, she wills herself into a self-reflective state where she doesn't hate herself for being so heartbroken.
