Ward Thomas

Those who have an interest in country music may have heard of a duo called Ward Thomas. The duo are to tour the UK at the end of the month as a part of their recently announced UK Spring tour.

The duo were formed just a few years ago in 2014 by 23 year old twin-sisters Catherine and Lizzy Ward Thomas, who come locally from Hampshire where they grew up on a farm. They have been given the ‘Britain’s first Country Stars’ title from many critics and have released two albums so far. Their latest release ‘Cartwheels’ has been a hit, reaching top spot in UK Album Charts making Ward Thomas the first UK country act to top the charts and officially making them the most successful UK country act ever. The album has sold over 75,000 copies since entering the charts last September.

They have recently released an interactive video for their new single Materials. The video allows viewer to seamlessly flick between Catherine and Lizzy’s vocals, either as a solo performance or in harmony, giving you the chance to listen to their individual vocal structure and personalities.
