We last spoke to Twinnie in 2017, since then she’s been making a name for herself on the UK country scene, playing festivals and live shows. We had a chance to ask a few quick questions ahead of C2C 2019.
Hello again Twinnie, what can you tell us about your new single ‘Better When I’m Drunk’?
I like to write about things that people think but don’t necessarily say. This song for me was all about showing the humour and the truth in what people actually think on a night out. It’s a fun, up-tempo country pop song! I wanted to blend my love of country with the contemporary pop that I was hearing on the radio. It has some elements that were inspired by Brothers Osborne and The Chainsmokers.
What’s the one song you’ve been working on that you really want people to hear?
When can we expect an album from you?
I’m not quite sure, I’m in the process of still making it and I’m really enjoying taking my time. After all, you only ever get to put out your debut album once!
You’re playing C2C again, what’s your best memory of the festival?
Last year, when people knew my songs and were able to sing them back to me, when they weren’t even out yet.
Obviously, there’s a lot of talk about equality in general at the moment, what’s your experience of being treated differently as a woman in your industry?
I have experienced being treated differently just because I’m a woman. Unfortunately it happens more often than not, but I definitely see an improvement. There seems to be a real movement at the minute within the music industry for equality and I’m pleased that this is being brought to light. It’s long overdue.
Finally, how do you take your coffee?
Coconut flat white if I’m feeling fancy, but I generally drink tea!! Yorkshire Tea.
You can catch Twinnie this weekend at C2C London on the Town Square Stage on Saturday, the BBC Radio 2 Stage and the C2C Sessions at the Loft on Sunday. Wristbands for the Festival Stages are still available.
