Despite being relatively new to the country scene, Twinnie’s first single Cool reached number 2 in the iTunes country charts and second single Home peaked at number 3.
Can you tell us about yourself? Where you're from and what you've been up to over the past few years?
I'm originally from York, North Yorkshire and now live in London! The past fews for me have been eventful/busy! I'm been writing a lot, gigging, signed a publishing deal with universal music, was on a British tv series and bought a house!
How would you describe your music?
It's country pop, it's fun, easy listening, story telling. Between early Taylor swift and Mumford sons!
Can you tell us a little bit about your influences?
Biggest influences are the team of writers I work with - they’re the people behind James bay, Tori Kelly, One Direction, James Morrison to name a few. Artist-wise, an old school one for you - Gilbert o Sullivan, Billy Joel, Dolly Parton, Kascey Musgraves, Tupac, Jason Mraz, Queen, The Beatles… A very mixed bag but I love all music though!
What are you currently promoting?
My latest single ‘Home’ and my self-titled EP!
Have you got a particular song you've done that you're particularly proud of, one that might define you?
‘Cool’ - my first single. I think it's a great track I really would love to get that on the radio more!
What are you currently listening to?
Marin Morris’ new album and Lucie Silvas
And your favourite album of all time, the one you couldn't do without?
Billy Joel’s greatest hits
What are your hopes for your future career?
To be working and to be remembered!!
If money were no object what would be your dream project?
Career-wise, I would love to be a producer of a musical film and star in it!!
Personally, to be a property developer. I have an unhealthy obsession with Home Base/Argos/Next… anything to do with home shopping, I like designing stuff!
What's the best thing about being a musician?
You can move someone with a song or take them back to a certain time. Its an Incredible power that music has over people! That feeling when your finishing up a set and you know when they've enjoyed it and ask for one more… That's the best feeling!
And the worst?
Probably sometimes playing to no audience haha.
