Road to FolkFest Concerts presents MADISON VIOLET
For those who dont know of Madison Violet, it all began in 1999. Brenley and Lisa met over
weak coffee and broccoli omelettes, in a restaurant called The Green Room, in Toronto. It was a
chance meeting, 1900 kms away from the small town where both Lisa and Brenleys fathers
were born. That was nearly 17 years ago, and the pair have been writing and creating beautiful
music together ever since.
When you hear them, the first thing youll notice is that their voices blend together, symbiotically,
like family: Born to sing the same songs. And over the past decade and a half, the pair have
taken to genre-bending, moving effortlessly from folk to pop to electronic to Americana. In a
word, they are musical chameleons.
Madison Violets first 2 studio albums, Worry the Jury and Caravan, were recorded with notable
producer John Reynolds (Sinead O'Connor, U2, Damien Dempsey) and were critically
acclaimed, garnering the pair several ECMA and CFMA nominations. Their 3rd and 4th
releases, No Fool for Trying and The Good In Goodbye are homegrown collections, recorded in
Ontario with producer Les Cooper at the helm. Their 5th studio release, was recorded in Toronto
by acclaimed producer, Tino Zolfo (Carly Rae Jepson, Soul Decision, Hawksley Workman), and
solidified the duo as musically versatile powerhouse songwriters. This Christmas, Madison
Violet released their first holiday album, 'Sleigh Bells In The Snow' to rave reviews. It is an
eclectic mix of Christmas songs, old and new, which also featured their good friend, Ron
Sexsmith, on 'Frosty The Snowman'. And finally, their newest collection of songs 'The Knight
Sessions' is a mix of stripped back, acoustic takes on some of their more upbeat musings as
well as a new batch of poetic and heartfelt tunes. (to be released in 2017)
Over the years, Madison Violet have acquired quite a few accolades, including a Juno
nomination, a Canadian Folk Music Award for Best Vocal Group Album of the Year and a
Critics Choice award from Country Music Peoples Magazine. Their songs have been
featured in the notorious music magazine MOJOs Top 10 Playlist, and received a mass
of 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 (which
was voted on by a panel of distinguished artists including Elton John, Tim McGraw, Black Eyed
Peas, Fergie, John Legend, Enrique Iglesias and Mary J. Blige). Madison Violet were on
Germanys WDR's list of Best Bands of All Time as well as having song placements on various
television shows. Their recent single These Ships was released on one of the largest dance
labels in the U.S., Ultra Records, and has garnered over 1,000,000 plays on Spotify already.
Brenley and Lisa are singer-songwriters. Multi-instrumentalists. Harmonizers. Dog lovers.
Nature walkers. Painters. Tennis fanatics. Amateur chefs.
They have been described as pop, roots, indie, dance and Americana, but think that this quote
sums them up best
Madison Violet has suddenly appeared like a ray of sunshine on a rainy day. - No
Depression
