Shasta Live presents Twin Kennedy
Award Winning Canadian Country Sensation
Growing up in such a musically infused family, it is no wonder that these sisters crafted their sound through a unique fusion of their background in country, folk, jazz and classical music. With years of classical training, including earning their Bachelor Degrees in Music Performance from the University of Victoria, the sisters have found their home in country music. With Carli on vocals and guitar, and Julie on vocals and violin, these petite powerhouses will fill your soul with joy and warmth through their seamless harmonies and heartfelt songwriting. No bond compares to that of sisters, and the same is to be said about the blend of their kindred voices.
With two EP’s in their back pocket as Carli & Julie Kennedy, these sisters came into 2015 making a splash in the Canadian country music scene, releasing their debut LP as Twin Kennedy, which earned them two Canadian Country Music Award nominations, a Western Canadian Music Award nomination for Producer of the Year, and two 2016 Vancouver Island Music Award wins for Song of Year and Country Recording of the Year. Produced by multiple CCMA and JUNO Award-winning artist George Canyon and renowned West Coast producer Graham Sharkey, It’s a Love Thing is a beautifully honest account of the ebb and flow of the navigation through love and life. From the uplifting opening track “Get Back Up Again” to the heartbreaking vulnerability of “That’s What I Should Have Said,” Twin Kennedy has compiled a track listing that is self-described as a true extension of themselves. Their latest single, “Secondhand Gold,” was the Grand Prize Award-winner in the Country category of the 2015 John Lennon Songwriting Contest, and the 2016 Lennon Award winner for Best Country Song.
