After the success of her debut single 'Cool', Twinnie is back with another country-pop anthem 'Home'. Since leaving Hollyoaks, Twinnie has gone from strength to strength and has big plans for her music. 'Home' is a heart wrenching defiant track about losing love with a sound akin to the likes of Mumford and Sons and early Taylor Swift. We caught up with Twinnie to see what her plans are for the rest of 2016.
You're well-known for your role as Porsche McQueen in Hollyoaks and acting in general, what made you decide to concentrate on your music instead?
I suppose to be frank, it's hard to live in London and dedicate your time to music when you're not getting paid very much - especially at the beginning. I used to model and by chance, at a modelling casting, they were auditioning for the part of a northern girl in Hollyoaks. I hadn't been put up for it by my agent, but my friend was there so I just gate crashed! 8 rounds later I got it. I was lucky really, acting is part of being artist I think; it goes hand in hand when you have to do music videos etc. I learnt a whole different side to my craft, new people!! Very grateful I was given the opportunity!
You've performed backing vocals for a number of huge stars including Pharrell Williams and Brian May - how did that come about?
Brian gave me my first job and it was in 'We Will Rock You' at the West End. I remember on my 20th birthday we sang 'The Show Must Go On' - it was incredible! The audience was about 2500 and we used to get standing ovations every night. That's one show I really miss and the people in it!
Pharrell came about originally through my agent they needed 3 girls to mimic the girls in his and Robin Thicke's hit 'Blurred Lines' video. We sang and did a bit of backing dancing for their UK promo along with TV performances and BBC Radio 1's Live Lounge. I'm waiting for the day I get on as a guest with Graham Norton to see if he remembers me hahaha!! Wishful thinking!
