Lennon & Maisy are a Canadian music duo composed of sisters Lennon Ray Louise Stella and Maisy Jude Marion Stella best known for their roles as Maddie and Daphne Conrad in the ABC musical drama series Nashville. They were born in Oshawa, Ontario but now reside in Nashville, Tennessee. Lennon & Maisy are the daughters of Brad and Marylynne Stella, who perform together as The Stellas.

Although music was the girls' early passion, Maisy had always been interested in acting and had been featured in several commercials and music videos when she was younger. So, when their mom became aware of a role in a new ABC show that was being filmed in Nashville, Maisy immediately auditioned. At the final stages of the auditioning process, the casting agents discovered Maisy's older sister Lennon and decided that both girls would be cast on the show. Lennon & Maisy began starring in the ABC drama Nashville in October 2012. However, prior to appearing on Nashville, the girls had to try to increase publicity so they could apply for their work visas. In order to achieve this, they uploaded a cover of Robyn's "Call Your Girlfriend," which went viral overnight. After this video was posted, they were invited to New York City to perform their cover on Good Morning America. From that moment, their careers took off. Their YouTube channel now has over 50 million views and over 500,000 subscribers.

Lennon & Maisy performed The Lumineers' "Ho Hey" on season one of Nashville. Their version reached the Top 40 on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart in April 2013. Later that year, Lennon & Maisy were invited to open for and present Taylor Swift with the Pinnacle Award at the CMA Awards.

Early in 2014, they recorded the song "Love" for a Coop Naturaplan TV commercial. The song rose to number 1 on the Swiss iTunes chart and was the number 2 most downloaded song in Switzerland for three consecutive weeks.

Lennon & Maisy have appeared on Good Morning America and The View. The girls performed at the St. Jude Country Music Marathon & Half Marathon Post Race Concert with Charles Esten on April 26, 2014, and they have performed at the Grand Ole Opry more than ten times. They released an EP called Live YouTube Sessions in August 2012. Also in 2012, they put out a Christmas single called "Christmas Coming Home". In 2014, they released a cover of "That's What's Up", a song originally by Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros. The sisters have been featured on numerous soundtrack albums for Nashville.

Lennon & Maisy have been featured in O, The Oprah Magazine, Glamour, People, The Globe and Mail, The Huffington Post and numerous other articles.

Michael Kors invited them to his show at New York Fashion Week. They weren't able to attend, so they recorded a video for him of them playing Corey Hart's "Sunglasses at Night."
