Madison Violet will take to the Victoria Playhouse stage on Monday, July 23 as part of the Musical Mondays Series.
Brenley MacEachern and Lisa MacIsaac met for the first time in a restaurant called The Green Room, in Toronto. It was a chance meeting, 1900 kilometres away from the small town in Cape Breton, Nova Scotia where both MacEachern and MacIsaac’s fathers were born. That was almost 30 years ago, and the pair have been writing and creating music together ever since.
Over the years, Madison Violet has acquired numerous accolades, including a Juno nomination, a Canadian Folk Music Award for Best Vocal Group Album of the Year and a Critic’s Choice award from Country Music People’s Magazine. Their songs have been featured in the music magazine MOJO’s Top 10 Playlist, received acclaim from outlets such as the BBC, the CBC, Maverick Magazine and NPR, and have earned the duo the Grand Prize in the 2010 Maxell John Lennon Song Writing Contest.
Madison Violet are multi-instrumentalist singer-songwriters and their music has been described as pop, roots, indie, dance and Americana, but the duo thinks the following quote from No Depression/The Journal of Roots Music sums them up best… “Madison Violet has suddenly appeared like a ray of sunshine on a rainy day.”
