Madison Galloway is an emerging voice in Canadian roots music. She takes the stage with her band and signature blend of rustic, earthy rock and blues, consistently turning heads with a high-energy and engaging performance! They charm audiences with toe-tapping originals, reaching back to pay homage to the great artists of the past while forging a sound all their own.

Madison began pursuing her passion for music from a young age. Growing up in small town Fergus, Ontario, she discovered a love of nature, community, and roots music, which continues to inspire her art today. At age 6, she began classical piano training, eventually advancing through conservatory programs and voraciously delving into the world of music theory and appreciation. However, it wasn’t until she picked up a guitar at age 12 that she discovered her true calling and began pouring out original songs. Drawing inspiration from her upbringing, current issues, and environmental concerns, she started to shape her signature sound and identity as an artist.

 

Since, Madison has released a 5-song EP entitled Who Knows Where and has built a reputation as a road warrior, touring relentlessly as a band, duo, and solo performer. They have played hundreds of shows, including notable performances at the Mariposa Folk Festival, Riverfest Elora, and RBC Bluesfest, making a name for herself as a must-see act. Madison has shared the stage with renowned artists such as 54-40, Ron Hawkins (Lowest of the Low), The Sadies, and Alysha Brilla; and with a full-length record and national touring in the works, she’s just getting started! Watch out for Madison’s new album in 2019!
