For those who don’t 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 Brenley’s fathers were born. That was 17 years ago, and the pair have been writing and creating beautiful music together ever since.
When you hear them, the first thing you’ll 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.
