Take a couple of Kentucky boys that pursue music with an all-out passion, yet keep their craft real to life, and you get Twang and Round. With influences that span across every genre ranging from Credence Clearwater, Black Crows, and Lynyrd Skynyrd to UGK, Outcast, and Beastie Boys, just to name a few. You will find a bridge between these genres with the art created by Twang and Round, who make music because they truly love it.
The musical career of Vernon Roach (a.k.a "Kuntry Twang") and Brad Davis (a.k.a "Lil Round") began in their early teens with a mutual love of music, recording, producing, and engineering. Discovering the ways that they complement each other they found that the style of music they create commanded one to listen closely.
Vernon Roach was born and raised in Kentucky where a large genre of music inspired him at an early age. He started singing in the church choir and as he grew, so did the influences surrounding him. With a rough upbringing right in the heart of Delafield, music was often a savior of a sense; an emotional outlet for the developing writer. Through poetry as well, when Kuntry Twang’s pen touched pad, magic ensued creating verse and prose that was true to life. He would go on to put these emotions into lyrics thus creating the songs that strike a chord with many.
Brad Davis was also born and raised in the Kentucky heartland where family played an inspirational role in his career choice. Growing up listening to old time country and bluegrass on the radio, it seems Lil Round has always had an ear for music. Feeling the beat and rhythm of each and every musical bar he encountered fed his desire to make his own way in the world of music. Starting with recording his own beats on his MTV Music Generator, Lil Round’s talents progressed far beyond what other artists around him were accomplishing. In time, he would become the producer/engineer that up-and -coming artists grappled to work with, guaranteeing pristine sound quality and fire beats to be comparable to even the most professional of studios.
Although well versed in all ranges of music, Kuntry Twang and Lil Round's passion lie in Southern Rap/Hip Hop/Country, and Rock, which is evident in their last three independent albums.
While the road to success thus far has been long, with many a mile spent pounding pavement, it is a dream that continues still. It lead them to sign with the Nashville label, Average Joes Entertainment, in 2014. Their first single on the label will be "All Wired Up", which will be featured on the Muddiggers compilation slated to be released in May 2014. Twang and Round's debut album for Average Joes is tentatively slated for an August 2014 release.
Through hard work and determination, Twang and Round are sure to see their sought after dreams realized and continue to connect those long, winding roads from state to state…with music.
