Lindsay Pratt and Naomi Shore, known as the country duo Twin Peaks in the music world, took home an award for the Roots Duo/Group Recording of the Year at the 2015 Western Canadian Music Awards- for their album “Trouble”.
They are both from Fort St. John, and are heavily involved in the ‘indie’ music scene here.
“Thanks to our super supportive homeland,” they wrote in a Facebook post after the win. “We are so proud to be Peace Region girls and we represent the spirit of the north everywhere we go. We are so grateful to have you all in our lives.”
The awards were part of the Breakout West festival and conference in Victoria. Breakout West celebrates musicians from all of Western Canada.
Twin Peaks was previously nominated for the same award in 2013, but lost to Jon and Roy for “Let It Go”
Talking to Energetic City by phone at the ferry terminal, they said it felt good to finally win this time – but they were exhausted by the time the weekend was over.
