Praise for Providence

Providence can be purchased on our web store here or on Amazon.

“I love the songs of my friend Phil Madeira. His lyrics celebrate life and love while acknowledging the heartbreak inherent in both; they always make me smile.”
-Emmylou Harris

"Providence is clear evidence that the music business, like anything, thrives on inequities. This album and its artist for the most part arrive as welcome surprises, whereas in a just world, Phil Madeira would be a star."   - Elmore Magazine


"Throughout, Providence is a musical departure for Phil Madeira. For those expecting the folksy country blues of his previous albums, Providence is an endearingly jazzy surprise. For much of the album, Madeira plays piano, handing his usual guitar over to some very capable guest hands including fellow Red Dirt Boy Will Kimbrough and jazz guitar deityJohn Scofield…. His foray into jazz has yielded the best album of his career." -AXS


"8/10 stars"- Glide Magazine


"Outside of certain, in-the-know musical circles, Phil Madeira is an unsung hero. A New England native who’s called Nashville home for 30 years, Madeira is beloved in Nashville’s tight-knit community of session players, and has shared stages and studios with artists like Neil Young, Leon Russell, Jack White, and Emmylou Harris, the final of whom has called Madeira a band member (one of her Red Dirt Boys) since 2008." -American Songwriter
