Madison Violet is a Canadian folk music duo composed of singer-songwriters Brenley MacEachern and Lisa MacIsaac. The group has been notable for various folk and pop award nominations and wins.
MacIsaac and MacEachern first met at an artists' hangout in Toronto in the late 1990s, when MacEachern was part of the band Zoebliss. MacIsaac briefly joined that band, and the pair continued collaborating as a duo after Zoebliss broke up in 1999. The duo were originally known as Madviolet, but later changed their name to Madison Violet.
They released three albums independently in Canada, and then signed a record deal with True North Records for their fourth album, No Fool for Trying. The duo have toured extensively across Canada, Europe, the UK and Australia.
In January 2011, Madison Violet was nominated for the 10th Annual Independent Music Awards in the Singer-Songwriter category for No Fool for Trying, and won in the category for Folk/Singer-Songwriter Song for "The Ransom and Small of My Heart".
MacIsaac is the sister of fiddler Ashley MacIsaac. Both MacIsaac and MacEachern publicly identify as lesbian.
