Ward Thomas will return to Dublin to play Whelan’s on March 22nd, 2015. Tickets €12 incl. are on sale this Friday November 28th via Ticketmaster.
Ward Thomas are twin sister-duo from Hamshire, England. Catherine and Lizzy Ward Thomas (who have been singing harmonies together since childhood) have had Country music in their blood ever since they were introduced to the sounds of Carrie Underwood, Dixie Chicks and Alison Krauss by a Canadian cousin in their early teens. One listen to the vocal cadences and close harmonies on their debut album ‘From Where We Stand’ and Nashville and Hampshire suddenly don’t seem all that far apart.
“For two young girls to produce something that is mature and genuine is something to be celebrated. They sound like country singers and though there isn’t a hint of a British accent in their voices the album represents who they are and their life experiences. It is well written with each song having the potential for radio play. Working alongside top Country producers gives the album an edge of class and hopefully helps them put a foot in the American market and create more exposure in the UK. It’s a perfect starting point for Ward Thomas who look set to impress Country Fans worldwide” – RenownedForSound.com
