New on The Show

Twin Kennedy

“Second Hand Gold” – “Lovely front cover, a really nice album a mix of radio friendly ones and slightly more acoustic ones this one struck me straight away, it’s a beautiful song” -  Marie Crichton BBC Radio Shropshire  

Genre: Country
Band Members: Carli Kennedy (Vocals, Guitar), Julie Kennedy (Vocals, Violin, Bass Guitar)
Home Town: Powell River, BC
Seven time BC Country Music Award nominees, Twin Kennedy (previously known as Carli & Julie Kennedy) are packed with a fiddle, guitar, tight harmonies, sweet and honest lyrics, and a magnetic energy.
These identical twins are “the next big thing in country music!” (Nashville Music Examiner).
Introducing: >> Twin Kennedy Video
Their musical bond is as strong as their small town roots – Twin Kennedy, comprised of West Coast sisters Carli and Julie Kennedy, have been making music together since they could talk. Born and raised in the small town of Powell River, Twin Kennedy grew up perfecting their sibling harmonies and dynamic live performances, while making their name known throughout their small community as a family band.
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 their Bachelors 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 has already earned a Western Canadian Music Award nomination for Producer of the Year. Produced by multiple CCMA and JUNO award winning artist George Canyon and renowned Western Canadian 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.

With seven BCCMA Award nominations since 2012, Carli and Julie have been a highly recognized duo throughout the West coast music community. When they’re not touring from town to town on the Trans Canada, Twin Kennedy is often found writing and performing with Nashville’s best. They had the privilege of representing Canada’s Society of Composers, Authors and Music Publishers as the SOCAN Artist of the Month on the Billy Block Show, second only to the Grand Ole Opry and Midnight Jamboree as Nashville’s longest running live radio show and concert series.
Expanding from their West coast roots, the twins have already travelled from coast to coast, bringing single "It’s a Love Thing" (CD Baby) to country radio across Canada.
On  April 7, 2015 they released their 9 track album It's a Love Thing (Twin Kennedy Entertainment) in Canada (Facebook Artwork )
They acknowledge the financial support of FACTOR, the Government of Canada through the Department of Canadian Heritage (Canada Music Fund) and of Canada's Private Radio Broadcasters.

Alex Hart
“Green Light” – Got a great sound….Lovely to hear British talent of this quality - Marie Crichton BBC Radio Shropshire  

Home Town: Plymouth, UK
Singer/songwriter signed to Right Track Digital via Universal in the UK and OK! Good Records in the US.
Growing up in the English countryside in East Devon, Alex now lives next to the sea with her dog Tilly and signed her first record label deals for the UK and US.
Performing what she calls West Country Country, her first single “Orange Van” was out in the UK in April followed by second single "Everybody Loves a Lover" from her Nov 10, 2014 released debut album, titled ON THIS DAY (available on Amazon UK and UK iTunes) . A fan of Doris Day since she was very young, it's a cover of her Grammy nominated 1958 single.
During the summer 2014 she released a track with the talented DJ team, Electronic Youth.
Coming from a family of pilots and equestrians Alex sometimes wonders how she chose the path of music, but aged 7 started to play the dusty violin her grandfather found in the attic and soon moved onto guitar and song writing. Then she fell in love with Jazz and discovered the magic of Doris Day, she’s a big inspiration and will be forever, hence the single.
Now 22, Hart has been Iucky enough to have played at some legendary venues, the Troubadour and Ronnie Scotts, even a rooftop private party overlooking the opening ceremony of the Paralympics 2012! One of her favourite gigs to date was supporting Turin Brakes at the first Lyme Folk Weekend in Lyme Regis.

Watch her single >>  ”Green Light”
