(VANCOUVER, BC) - Vancouver soul-pop band Hollow Twin are independently releasing their 2nd EP 'Keepers' on Tuesday, April 28th and will celebrate the EP's release with a show on Sunday, April 26th at Hindenburg (23 West Cordova). Full details are listed below.
It was a rainy September day when Vancouver musicians Emmalee Watts and Becky Wosk first met back in 2012 and the two became fast friends. They were quick to bond over their love of music from the 60's and 70's and the two discovered that they actually lived only a few blocks away from each other! The 2 musicians became inseparable and quickly realized they were put together to make the music.
Emmalee's deep sultry voice and vintage guitar tones, paired with Becky's soulful vocals and endless lyrics, fueled the beginning of this duo's music. They started performing together as a folk duo under the name Chatterton Eve, making a name for themselves in Vancouver's live music scene. The pair soon wanted to make their sound much bigger, just like their heroes of the past. They switched from acoustic guitar to electric, added a drummer and bassist, and began paving the way for their big, soulful sound. And that's when Hollow Twin was born.
"We needed a name that you could really grab on to," Becky explains. "Emmalee and I were sitting together at the airport in Montreal. We were both really tired and huddled together, just grateful for each other's company and that's when the name came to us: Hollow Twin. It was perfect."
To round out the band, Emmalee and Becky were soon joined by Mitchell Williams on drums, Matt Johnson on bass and Joanne Zoleikhapour on keys/guitar. Hollow Twin then began to move forward with great momentum. After releasing their 3-song EP 'Noctuary' last year, the band hit the road, showcasing at Canadian Music Week and opening for bands such as: Repartee and The Darcy's. 2014 was a good year and Hollow Twin began to make its mark in a big way. In early 2015, they began working on their second EP as Hollow Twin with producer Winston Hauschild (Hannah Georgas, Wanting Qu) at Little Island Studios on Bowen Island. The result is their incredible sophomore EP entitled 'Keepers'.
