“He can channel the pain of life and warp it into beauty.” – Beat Magazine
You don’t have to listen long to grasp the beauty in the blended voices of Western Canadian Music Award-winning folk/roots duo Twin Peaks (Naomi Shore and Lindsay Pratt). But when you experience their live show you’ll realise that their music is about something much more captivating than just a catalogue of clever songs. It’s the expression of a rare kind of harmony that exists between their spirits – that’s what makes Twin Peaks so infectious and unforgettable.
“Go see them in an intimate performance while you can, once the word gets out about this talented young duo you’ll wish you had. Go see them!” Doug Cox, Artistic Director – Vancouver Island Music Fest
