Ward Thomas Share Nashville Video Diary
Ward Thomas share a video diary of a day from their recent trip to Nashville – including a chance encounter with Vince Gill.
Last week in the run up to Mother’s Day Ward Thomas shared an emotive tribute to their mother, ‘Who We Are’ is song inspired by their mother’s relentless strength, wisdom and love.
The Deluxe edition of their debut album ‘From Where We Stand’ was released on March 2nd. As well as ‘Who We Are’, the re – packaged version of the album includes a cover of Michael Jackson’s classic ‘Man In The Mirror’ and live versions of tracks recorded on last autumn’s UK tour.
On the 7th & 8th of March, Ward Thomas played on three different stages at the C2C Festival at the O2, including a show in the Brooklyn Bowl and a performance on the Satellite Stage in the Arena itself where they played to a 16,000 strong audience. It was a monumental moment for the sisters.
“The twin sisters duo Ward Thomas is on course to become the most successful female British country act of all time.” Country Music People – January 2015

TEMPLETON PEK POST VIDEO FROM IN THE STUDIO
UK punk rock trio TEMPLETON PEK have recently finished recording their forthcoming album ‘Signs’ in the States with producer Shep Goodman and have posted a video from the studio.
Neal Mitchell (vocals, bass) comments: “It was fun looking back at how this album was born along with the mini adventure we had in the USA, when it was all happening there wasn’t any time to take it all in. It was a massively new and exciting process for us working with big producers and a production team being a band born from DIY ethics, it pushed us further as writers and a band but we’re totally confident in the result.”
This is the first part of the ‘In The Studio’ video features clips of the band recording. Watch the video now here: http://youtu.be/JxjW-dUYUNU
Part two (The UK Sessions/New York) coming soon…
The album is due for release on April 22nd on Century Media Records. Furthermore the band has already debuted the single ‘What Are You Waiting For‘ from the ‘Slow Down For Nothing‘ EP. To listen to the track, head over to Century Media’s official YouTube channel:http://youtu.be/ANx6gk8ZmPk
