Raised in Louisville, Kentucky identical twin sisters, Chandra and Leigh Watson, have always blended musical genres to tell their story. The twins moved to the thriving music scene of Silver Lake, Los Angeles in the early 2000’s where their sound “developed a style of sweet, soulful indie-folk that does more than nod to alt-country influences” (NPR). The twins released 4 albums – and spent a lot of time on the road – during their time in LA. But it was when they relocated to Nashville 5 years ago that they began to focus on the power of their signature harmonies.
In recent years the Watson Twins have toured in support of their own releases Pioneer Lane, Night Covers, Talking to You, Talking to Me, Fire Songs & Southern Manners, as well as continuing to perform as back-up vocalists for some of music’s most notable acts. The Watson Twins have performed with: Kings of Leon, Harry Connick Jr., Vanessa Carlton, CeeLo Green, Foster The People, The Shins, Conor Oberst, Jenny Lewis, John Paul White (the Civil Wars), My Morning Jacket, Shooter Jennings, Butch Walker, Rayland Baxter, Jessie Baylin, Bahamas, Billy Bragg, Willie Nelson and many more.
“The twin sisters have a sense of harmony that has gone unmatched and a growing reputation as the artists to call when you need perfect voices behind you.” – Paste Magazine
