"Timeless Poppedelica … the silky-voiced sirens Linda and Laura Good together known as The Twigs. " -- LA Weekly
The Twigs® are alternative pop musicians, music producers, composers, twin sisters and multi-instrumentalists Laura Good and Linda Good.
After releasing five critically acclaimed CDs, they recently wrote a new musical, LADYSHIP. Based on a true story, LADYSHIP was an Official Grand Jury Selection for the New York Musical Festival and was also a finalist for the Richard Rodgers Award for Musical Theater 2020. Read more about LADYSHIP on its website here, and in Playbill here. They are currently working on the LADYSHIP Concept Album to be released in 2023 and an episodic comedy-drama, TAHOE '68.
The Twig's songs have been heard on major radio stations and in many television shows and films (notably, "Love, Love, Love (remix)"and "Oh Mary"). Their CD “The Universe Tonight” was produced by Grammy Producer of the Year nominee, Johnny K. Their cover version of the Kink's song "All Day and All of the Night" won the Shure National Musical Roots Contest. The Twigs have performed around the world and have headlined live shows at top venues including House of Blues, Mercury Lounge (NYC), and The Hotel Café.
Among their solo projects, Linda Good has toured as a keyboardist with Jane's Addiction, The Mars Volta and Lisa Marie Presley, in addition to composing for film/TV and producing records for other artists. The single “Love Is…” from her solo album, Love is a Curious Thing hit Top 5 on KCRW. Laura Good's solo projects include recording as alter-ego Lars Darvo, collaborations with baroque popster/video artist Daniel Carlson, and several commissions for choral works.
The sisters grew up playing any instrument put in front of them. After an early childhood living in Mexico City, they grew up in Chicago, the youngest of five daughters of an opera singing, single-mom schoolteacher. The twins went their separate ways in college, with Linda in the UK and Laura in Chicago. Oddly enough, it was only when the sisters were separated by an ocean that they started writing songs together. After trading song ideas across the Atlantic, they reunited in Chicago and formed The Twigs. The Twigs band started out in the Chicago alternative pop scene in the late 90’s. A move to the west coast in 2000 launched their careers together, and apart as musicians, producers and songwriters. Linda is currently based out of Los Angeles, and Laura is based out of Charlottesville, VA.
