“ Lindsay (Pratt, ukulele) finished school two weeks ago and I have my last piano lesson this week, then we’re free, ” enthused Naomi Shore, who just finished updating their tour listings with 65 new tour dates, which take them out to Winnipeg and back to Vancouver and then to Vancouver Island with their friend Annie Becker.


They have had a good year, they played a lot of shows including the South Country Fair and their second album was nominated for a Western Canadian Music  Award a week ago.


“We’ve also been part of the CBC radio competition, but didn’t win. But this is an award, that’s a real accomplishment, maybe we’ll win that. We were nominated for our first album too. Maybe we’ll win this time,” she said.
 She noted the duo are also working on new music.


“We have half a new album written and a lot of half finished songs. And neither of us are any good at writing bridges, so we have a lot of verse chorus, verse chorus songs,” she chuckled adding one of the new songs is called “ Never Trust a GPS.”


“ It”s a funny song about getting lost in the middle of  nowhere, northern B.C. We  leaving a festival in Fort St. James and  thought we could cut two hours off our trip by following the GPS, but it turned out to be a gravel road. We blew a tire and we were mad, so we decided to write a song about it. It was either laugh or cry  about it,” she related adding they are excited to play the new music for people.


“ Lindsay always comes up with great songs right after we record an album and they could have been on it. That's when she gets inspired,” she said.


 
“ Lindsay is writing all of these great jazzy chord progressions,” she said.
“ We’re looking forward to playing them in front of people because they take on a life of their own,” she said.
They already  have some highlights to look forward to.


“We finally got into the Nanton Auditorium. We’ve been trying to get in there  for a while and we finally wore her down. And our show is already sold out in Forget, Saskatchewan. It’s a town of about 1,000 people.


“ And we’re looking forward to  coming back to Lethbridge. It’s one of our favourite places to play,” she enthused.


“ We also have a whole day off in Winnipeg, so hopefully we can  go to some open mics and weasel our ay into there. They have a great scene there,” she continued.
 Twin Peaks play the Owl Acoustic Lounge, May 22 at 9 p.m.
