Madison Avenue was an Australian dance music and pop duo. Madison Avenue is best known for the song "Don't Call Me Baby" which went to the top of the Australian singles charts in 1999 and to the top of the UK singles and Billboard dance charts in 2000.
Before joining Madison Avenue, Cheyne Coates was working as a choreographer and singer in Melbourne. Cheyne met producer and writer Andy Van Dorsselaer in a dance club. Van was the founder of the Vicious Vinyl record label and had remix credits for Tina Arena and CDB. Van had also won an ARIA award for his production work on "Coma" by Pendulum.
The duo started working together mainly as writers and producers in 1998. Their first single "Fly" featured Kellie Wolfgram as the vocalist. However, Cheyne sang on the group's breakthrough single "Don't Call Me Baby" because Andy Van liked her version initially used as the guide track for the intended singer. Van took the song to the MIDEM Conference leading to the band being signed by Virgin Records in the UK and Sony BMG Music Entertainment for the rest of the world.
