Affection Connection

Kennedy sisters debut 'It's a Love Thing' CD in Chilliwack April 13

Released by Jess Seguire

 

The popular Kennedy sisters put on an energetic show last year at Party in the Park

 

here is no force stronger than that of sisters. They’ve changed their name, they’ve traveled across the country, and now Victoria, BC sisters, Twin Kennedy, are ready to share the depths of their hearts with fans with the release of their debut album It’s a Love Thing. Comprised of nine heart-felt, honest tracks, the duo bears it all in their new release – proving the true affection that exists between the twins and their music.

 

Produced by multiple award-winning country music heavy-hitter George Canyon and notable west-coast producer Graham Sharkey, It’s a Love Thing is a beautiful account of the natural ebb and flow that is inevitable in the journey of love. From the uplifting opening track “Get Back Up Again” to the heartbreaking vulnerability of “That’s What I Should Have Said,” Twin Kennedy has compiled a track listing that is self-described as a true extension of their lives. After the incredible success of the title track single, It’s a Love Thing will be available in its entirety to fans across the country on April 7th, 2015.


“These songs are real to us, they tell the stories of our lives, and we know that this will resonate with our friends and fans,” the sisters explain. “With this record, we put it all out there, we didn’t hold anything back and we have been true to ourselves and our values with the themes and musicality of the record.”
 

The junction between Twin Kennedy and their music can’t be any more apparent than through their sensational live performance. Over the past year, the twins have performed over 60 shows and have embarked on four tours, stretching from the Yukon and Northwest Territories to the Article Circle, Cape Breton to Iceland and Sweden. It is safe to say if 2014 was a great year for Twin Kennedy, there is no question that 2015 will be even greater.
 

After spending the past two months traveling across Canada visiting radio stations with a simultaneous acoustic tour, Twin Kennedy is getting ready to head back out on the road to celebrate the release of It’s a Love Thing. With 12 west coast dates stretching from Calgary, AB to their hometown of Powell River, BC, the sisters will be accompanied on stage with a full band, bringing an even bigger, richer Twin Kennedy experience. But this experience doesn’t stop on the main stage – in select tour stops, the duo will be presenting a number of school performances and workshops to students.
 

In addition to their continued touring, the sisters are ecstatic to have been selected to perform an official showcase during Toronto’s Canadian Music Week in May, and have just been announced as an opening act for Big and Rich at the Rockin’ River Music Festival on Sunday, August 2nd.
