The Watson Twins

Tall, sultry, raven-haired, Kentucky-bred, church-trained, Americana-lovin’ the Watson Twins –Leigh and Chandra– captured the attention of many a music fan nearly five years ago when they graced the cover of Jenny Lewis’s solo debut, Rabbit Fur Coat, and caressed many of the tunes with their luminous vocal harmonies. After Rabbit, the Twins struck out on their own with an EP (2006’s Southern Manners), a proper full-length debut (2008’s Fire Songs), and this year’s Talking To You, Talking To Me. While they’ve never abandoned the gospel and alt-country/indie-folk textures with which they launched their career, their more recent fare includes excursions into classic soul and R&B, and ’70s Laurel Canyon-style soft-rock. With Ferraby Lionheart. MICHAEL ALAN GOLDBERG
