The Madisons are a garage-folk band from Austin, Texas, consisting of eight members who use a wide range of instruments from the violin to electric guitar.

Jim Caligiuri from The Austin Chronicle said that “they’ve settled into a septet of fiddles, trumpets, guitars, and percussion that’s ramshackle in all the right places.” This is proven to be true in their latest release No One’s Ever Gonna Know Your Name where they find a way to perfectly arrange these instruments. They won this year’s Austin Chronicle Music Awards title for “2nd Best Folk Band” and played Dallas Homegrown Fest in 2012.
