Local sister duo giving audience a ‘taste’ of live performances
LOCAL sister duo Nine Year Sister believed they were 'at the peak' of their career right before the devastating impacts of the coronavirus pandemic struck our region.
Not letting the current circumstances hold them back, Wardle sisters Jennie and Emma have found new ways to keep their audiences entertained.
"We have been keeping busy recording live acoustic videos," Emma said.
"People have been requesting songs from our albums and we have been posting them to Facebook and Youtube once a week.
"It's a nice way to keep people engaged and listening to our music," the youngest of the two said.
Adding to that, Jennie said the pair have also been using the spare time to create and record new music.
"We have been writing and recording," Jennie said.
"Releasing some new songs.
Still on a high after being crowned busking champions at this year's Apple & Grape Harvest Festival, the two are hopeful they can 'pick up where they left off' once self-isolation restrictions subside.
"It is disappointing," Emma said.
"We had so many events and performances planned for this year.
"We both felt as though we were right in the peak of our career," she said.
Performing for just over a year together, both Jennie and Emma are itching to get back out onto the stage to do what they love.
"We are getting a lot of great opportunities and are really enjoying where we are at the moment," Jennie said.
For the meantime, the girls plan on continuing their prerecorded acoustic sessions.
"I think it is nice to hear that version stripped back from the actual song," Emma said.
"It's not something we would aim to release once all of this is over but it is as close as we can get to a live performance.
"We generally perform a couple of our songs acoustically when we perform live so it is giving our audience a taste of a live performance while we are in self-isolation."
