If you happen to have grown up in a musical family, you understand the very unique dynamic of making music with family members. Whether it’s harmonizing in the car on a roadtrip or jamming with your little brother in the basement, there is just something…different. Be it genetics and inherited musical talents or just similar upbringings and influences, if you can get along with a family member long enough to collaborate musically, magical things can happen.
Seeing a story on the Veronicas somewhere recently got me wondering. How many not just sibling musicians are there out there (there must be a ton), but how many twin musicians? A lot, it turns out. Here is a sampling.
Lisa and Jessica Origliasso of The Veronicas
Tegan and Sara Quin of Tegan and Sara
Simone and Amadeo Pace of Blonde Redhead
Joel and Benji Madden of Good Charlotte
Sam and Amanda Marchant of Samanda
Jacob and Joshua Miller of Nemesis
Kim and Kelly Deal of The Breeders
Chandra and Leigh Watson of The Watson Twins
Any of you musicians out there jam with your family? Your twin? Tell us your story.
