The Way It Goes Sometimes / Bio

The Way It Goes Sometimes(long for TWIGS)is an original hip-hop band that seamlessly mashes up genres, centering around Founder/Producer/Songwriter/Lyricist Derek “Twigs” McConnell and Guitarist Eric “Lil Goat” Surprenant. The two are backed up by a full band coming all the way live with incredible energy and a sound so big it is considered stadium worthy. Having all grown up in the same area of Southwest Florida with a strong passion for music, the band was instantly a tight-knit group and it shows in everything they do, on and off stage. Even though they all hail from the same place they have slightly different musical roots and while their backgrounds are somewhat diverse, they have combined elements of each that make for one truly unique sound. They push Hip-Hop with influences from Reggae, Rock and Soul to Punk, Rhythm & Blues; 100% original from the bottom up. Their vibe is contagious and has generated a loyal following. To know ‘em is to love ‘em. there is no fans, only the ever growing TWIGS Family that revolves around respect, unity and an appreciation for original music. This native band has turned Florida’s cultural melting pot into a sound that is so rich and has such a broad appeal that the music scene is struggling to put a label on it. All they can really say is…it’s The Way It Goes Sometimes.
