2010 Juno Nominees and winners of the 2009 Canadian Folk Music Awards for Vocal Group of the Year Madison Violet combine the talents of songwriter/musicians Brenley MacEachern and Lisa MacIsaac. Their new album, No Fool for Trying is a brilliant collection of catchy, heart-melting, gut-wrenching songs invoking the essence of Lucinda Williams.
Both hailing from Scottish small towns in Canada, Brenley MacEachern and Lisa MacIsaac have chosen another musical path; one that channels their parent’s vintage record collection that comprised of the likes of Neil Young and Dolly Parton. Madison Violet came to be nearly 9 years ago after a chance meeting at an appropriately titled restaurant 'The Green Room'. Since that fateful meeting, the pair have come into a sound of their own, which has been described as both city-folk and tumbleweed pop.
