The Watson Twins (from the album Duo available as a self-release)
Proving the singer is not immune to the song, The Watson Twins point out that there is a short line between ‘headliner and heartache’ in every town. “Hustle and Shake” opens Duo, the recent release from The Watson Twins, the story following the sisters as they put life down on paper, looking at the possibilities and the pitfalls, realizing that their final goal stays clear and that they ‘want it all’. Duo is the sixth album release from The Watson Twins, the first album that saw identical twins Chandra and Leigh Watson co-writing the songs and singing the leads together. Originally from Lexington, Kentucky, The Watson Twins chose Tennessee to record Duo, the pair harnessing the power of two, adding lessons learned in the course of their career to the mix, finding that ‘the backdrop of Nashville inspired a new direction for us. We’d always written songs separately but we wanted to focus on our strength as a duo. The last few years in the studio and on the road allowed us to explore our sound while singing with other artists. Now felt like the right time for us to make a record that reflected the experiences we’ve gathered along the way’.
West coast thoughts drift through the minds of The Watson Twins as memories of California haunt “Down in the Valley”. The sisters admit ‘I am just a woman and this is just a song’ as they color the weight of their words “Blue Tonight”, look for the right steps to take as they are shaken with the rumble of “Rolling Thunder”, and slow the pace for a sad Country song in “Cry Baby”. Joining with another pair of voices, The Watson Twins couple with The Cactus Blossoms in “Call to You” as Duo deals out gratitude for a special someone on the shuffling rhythm of “Lucky Star”.
