“Everything’s Shifting is beautifully vulnerable from the opening chords of “Sight of the Sun” all the way to the final note of “Real Love.” MacEachern and MacIsaac’s vocals weave together seamlessly, through moments like the chorus in “All Over Again,” and against the powerfully relevant “Seal My Fate.” In between ballads falls uptempo tracks like the momma-knows-best  “Mama Told Me.” Striking, sultry guitars set the mood for “Nobody.” And you’ll fall for the simplicity of “Time to Right the Wrong.” Madison Violet give us a full body of beautiful songs; stories of heartbreak, hope, love, and everything in between.”

“This intimate setting was the ideal location for Madison Violet to start their UK tour. The duo have been together for 20 years and treated us to songs from throughout their back catalogue. Great musicianship and some stunning harmonies are at the centre of what they do backed up by a nice line in between song patter. Madison Violet’s great strength is their personal connection to their own songs. The Woodshed, requested as an encore, is a searingly honest and moving account of the murder of Brenley’s brother.”

After 20 years together, Juno nominated singer-songwriting duo, Madison Violet, are as much wanderers as they are musicians. It is a career filled with endless roads stretching into the horizon, winding through changing landscapes, each kilometer traveled carrying with it the promise of inspiration. Perhaps that is the secret of what has made Madison Violet such an enduring band. Because with each new town, each new venue, their curiosity grows, their love of music deepens, their desire to push musical boundaries expands.


It is believed that the spark that ignited Madison Violet’s irrepressible curiosity came from an unlikely source; while sitting in Brenley’s grandmother’s kitchen in Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia, filled to bursting with family, friends, instruments (and maybe even a foe or two), and miles from their adopted home of Toronto, Ontario, two musicians looked at each over the flickering light of the old wood stove and knew that theirs would be an unconventional journey. Inspired by their heritage, emboldened by their vision, Lisa MacIsaac and Brenley MacEachern decided that they would create a sound that would have it’s roots in their past while continually exploring new sounds. From the beginning, the multi-instrumentalists have carried authenticity with them like a talisman, writing all of their own music and lyrics, believing that the best way to connect to their audiences was to treat them like old friends sharing a secret and a smile. As vocalists they have an innate ability to break your heart, slyly knowing that their soaring harmonies will mend it, often all in the span of one song.
