Artist Biography "Ward Thomas" are twin sisters Catherine and Lizzy Ward Thomas, born in 1994 in Hampshire UK. Hampshire and Country music may not be obvious bed fellows but these girls, brought up on a rural livestock farm from a family line that included artists and authors, have had Country music in their blood ever since they were introduced to the music of Carrie Underwood, Johnny Cash, Dixie Chicks and Alison Krauss by a cousin in their early teens. “We fell hard for Country”, as Catherine puts it. One listen to the vocal cadences and close harmonies on their debut album ‘From Where We Stand’ and Nashville and Hampshire suddenly don’t seem all that far apart.
Whilst in sixth form, a rough demo of the Ward Thomas track “Footnotes” found its way into the hands of Nashville’s most respected session musicians, leading to the recording of a debut album ‘From Where We Stand’ that could spearhead a UK Country sound.
