There are no two ways about it, the London duo Two Ways Home has got us wanting more and we hope they find their way back to the states sometime soon. The duo, comprised of Vienna’s Isabella Mariee and Cotswold raised Lewis Fowler, Two Ways Home is a product of fate. Isabella as a young child was influenced by her grandma, an actress and singer who acted as Isabella’s escape into the world of music. Upon having learned the piano at age nine, Isabella came to England for the chance to pursue pop music. There she found herself in a band, a band that later introduced her to Lewis as they were looking for a new guitarist. Lewis, who grew up in a musical household, was trained by his father in the art of the guitar and took off to London to study music. Once having met, the two quickly became compatible and found themselves as a duo once their bandmates had moved on to newer or different things.
Playing at open mic nights across the city, Isabella and Lewis began writing their own music together. Upon hearing the harmony of their voices, both agreed that their sound best reflected the country music genre and soon after found themselves on a plane to Nashville. There they set out on a quest to find themselves and fell in love with country music’s organic sounds and diversity.
Returning to London, the duo was quick to return to the drawing board writing songs left and right based on their own experiences in the hopes to appear honest and relatable. Co-writing with both local and international artists, the duo is excited for the release of their third EP titled Closest Stranger. A true collaboration produced in Nashville and recorded in London, the Closest Stranger EP is bound to have a lot of character. Set to be released on June 2nd the duo is excited to share that the EP is available for pre-order on iTunes now!
So make sure to find the duo touring throughout the UK and Austria as well as performing every month as hosts of London’s Round Up Night featuring four new acts each week. Plus you can find them on Facebook and Twitter @TwoWaysHome.
I am currently a student at Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles as a marketing major. Upon realizing that I wanted to change the way people perceive country music and to help women have a voice, I began Next Women of Country in 2015 promoting new female artists and sharing their stories with the world.
