THE WATSON TWINS
Chandra and Leigh Watson were born on March 28, 1975 in Tulsa, Oklahoma and raised in Louisville, Kentucky. They attended the University of Evansville then moved to Silverlake, California in 1997, where they were founding members of and backup singers for local band Slydell. They also began writing their own music and performing with other musicians.
In 2006 the Watson Twins released their debut EP, Southern Manners, almost simultaneously with Rabbit Fur Coat, their collaboration with singer-songwriter Jenny Lewis. Their album Fire Songs was released on June 24, 2008 and on February 9th, 2010 they released "Talking To You, Talking To Me" both on Vanguard Records.
The group recorded a version of the Neil Young song "Powderfinger" for the American Laundromat Records compilation charity album titled Cinnamon Girl - Women Artists Cover Neil Young for Charity, released in February 2008.
"... the Watsons consult vintage Southern styles for inspiration, incorporating touches of country and plenty of hot-blooded soul. The only problem with "Calling Out," "Forever Me," and other alluring tracks is that they end too soon-the sultry vocals, churchy organ, and stinging electric guitar of "Midnight" leave you craving more..."
