INTERVIEW SERIES: MADI DIAZ -- LF: At what point in your life did you realize you wanted to pursue music? -- MD: When I was 14 and learned how to play “Down By The River” by Neil Young. When I finally could play and sing it at the same time there was a pull that I was pretty helpless against. I didn’t know I was “supposed” to be playing music, but I definitely knew there was nothing else I wanted. Not even a little.
