Lizzy and Catherine Ward Thomas, twin sisters from Hampshire, were introduced to the sounds of Carrie Underwood, Alison Krauss and Dixie Chicks by a Canadian cousin in their early teens and they were smitten with the sound. The duo fulfilled a three album deal with Sony by the age of 25 and became the UK’s first country act to reach No.1.
Their latest album ‘Invitation’ was started whilst on their last tour, by the time lockdown began all of the songs were started, but few completed. Almost all of the vocals have been recorded at home in their rented cottage over the last year and produced remotely.
Lockdown may have forced Ward Thomas to finish ‘Invitation’ in isolation, but it was always intended to have a homespun vibe. For the first time since making their debut while still at school, for their most personal album yet, Catherine and Lizzy went DIY.
Catch the sisters at the Brangwyn Hall this November.
