Extended Bio:

Harp Duo

As the world’s only identical twin professional harpists, Camille and Kennerly were trained classically, but have a passion and flair for arranging and performing rock, metal, and soundtrack music for Harp Duet. The Harp Twins perform on statuesque acoustic Concert Grand Harps as well as Electric Harps. Camille and Kennerly have teamed-up with Harpsicle/Rees Harps to show what can be done with smaller, affordable harps, using their Harpsicles in videos and for work with children who have special needs. Camille and Kennerly have created a unique niche for themselves: they play rock and metal music using only their two harps. With no backtracks, no studio, no production crew, and no record label, the Harp Twins are the archetype of true independent artists.

Repertoire

Camille and Kennerly are recognized for their remarkable duet harp arrangements of songs by artists such as Guns N’ Roses, Iron Maiden, Led Zeppelin, Metallica, Ozzy Osbourne, Megadeth, Aerosmith, AC/DC, The Rolling Stones, Blue Oyster Cult, Scorpions, Eagles, The Police, Bon Jovi, Pink Floyd, U2, Journey, Evanescence, Billy Idol, The Beatles, Deep Purple, and many more. The twins also arrange and perform TV and Movie Soundtrack, Anime, and Video Game hits. Some fan favorites include their renditions of music from Game of Thrones, The Walking Dead, Pirates of the Caribbean, The Elder Scrolls, Final Fantasy, Star Trek, Star Wars, Vikings, Doctor Who, Downton Abbey, Zelda, Mario, Silent Hill, Harry Potter, The Lord of the Rings, and The Hobbit. In addition to being prolific arrangers, Camille and Kennerly compose and perform their own original pieces for Harp Duet. Camille and Kennerly’s radical Duet Harp Revolution is changing the word’s perception of the harp and the way harp is played – one song at a time.

Camille and Kennerly have released 4 cover albums: Harp Attack, Harp Attack 2, Harp Fantasy, and Harp Fantasy 2. All 4 CDs have been top selling albums on their distributer.
