Madison & Shannon Easter
Husband and wife singer/songwriter duo, Madison and Shannon have been making music together since 2012 but that wasn't the beginning for them. As young high-school students, Madison and Shannon met in 2004 where they were both performing music for a church youth rally. Madison recalls, "Shan was incredible. I couldn't get her off of my mind for days." They were married in 2010 and soon thereafter began writing together. The couple released their first acoustic EP, Dreams, in March of 2013 and the follow-up Christmas EP, Under The Mistletoe, in November of 2013. Madison and Shannon are currently touring and they are writing for their first full-length album.
One could say Madison Easter had no chance of evading a career in music. As the first great-grandchild of Roy "Pop" Lewis (patriarch of Georgia Hall of Famers and "the first family of bluegrass" The Lewis Family), the grandson of James Easter (The Easter Bros.), and the son of Grammy-nominated gospel artists Jeff and Sheri Easter, Madison is no stranger to traveling and performing. He taught himself guitar at the age of 13 and quickly progressed to other instruments eventually making his way into writing and singing. After traveling nearly 3 MILLION miles with his parents as their guitarist, Madison decided to leave the group to pursue a career in writing and singing with his wife, Shannon. Madison was named Absolutely Gospel's Musician Of The Year for three consecutive years and won a Dove award for his work co-producing Jeff and Sheri Easter's album Eyes Wide Open.
To refer to Shannon Easter as an extremely talented vocalist, pianist, and writer would only be the beginning. Shannon also comes from a family centered around a love for music. At the age of 5, she began taking piano lessons and would often play and sing for her church. As she grew into a young adult, Shannon stayed active in her community and performed in many of her school's musical programs. She started writing her first songs at 12 and soon filled notebook after notebook with her lyrics. After their engagement, Shannon began traveling full-time with Madison and his family serving as Sheri's personal assistant and managing the group's product and social media marketing. In 2015, she left the group alongside Madison.
