Born and raised in the small town of Powell River, BC, 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.
Now, Twin Kennedy has been living in Nashville for three years.
This magical blend is put to the forefront with the release of A Twin KennedyChristmas – the duo’s first-holiday album. Mixing both Twin Kennedy originals and holiday classics, this album is sure to be a Christmas staple for years to come. Co-written with some of the finest Canadian and Nashville talent, and accompanied by Music City’s best musicians (including the rhythm section of Grammy award-winning group The Time Jumpers) Twin Kennedy’s sound is brought to its purest form with tracks like,"I’m a Child Again," and their lead single, "Cold Weather."
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, andclassical 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.
Following their debut release, It’s a Love Thing (2015), the sisters have made an incredible impact on the Canadian country music scene. Having received three CCMAAward nominations, including Interactive Artist/Group of the Year and two nominations for Fiddle Player of the Year (Julie), their most recent single, “Secondhand Gold,” was the Grand Prize Award winner in the Country category of 2015, John Lennon Songwriting Contest. As well, the 2016 Lennon Award winner forBest Country Song. With twelve BCCMA Award nominations and two Vancouver Island Music Award wins (Country Album of the Year and Song of the Year) to their names, Carli and Julie have been a highly recognized duo.
