About The Watson Twins

Twin sisters Chandra Watson and Leigh Watson’s music crosses the divide between country traditions and contemporary roots music. Born and raised in Louisville, Kentucky, the Watson Twins moved to Los Angeles in 1998. They got a significant career boost when Rilo Kiley's Jenny Lewis invited the girls to sing harmonies on her solo debut. The result, 2006's Rabbit Fur Coat, was a major indie success that drew nearly as much attention to the Watson Twins as it did to Lewis. The sisters followed up such success with a recording of their own, Southern Manners. After signing with Vanguard, they released their first full-length album, Fire Songs, in 2008, with Talking to You, Talking to Me following two years later. ~ Mark Deming
