Album Review - Tips In A Jar - Tennessee Twin

Cambridge based modern country duo 'Tennessee Twin', consisting of Geoff Meads and Victoria Mills have gone straight in at No.1 on the iTunes UK Country Chart with their debut EP 'Tips In A Jar'.

The pair won the Nashville Music City / BA song-writing competition in March 2018 with their single 'Wings Of Red, White & Blue'. They’ve since been writing, recording and gigging regularly including appearances at Cambridge Folk Festival and Corn On The Cob. 

Speaking about their chart success they said 

Reaching no.1 is a dream for any musician and we were more than a little shocked to grab the top position in the Country Chart on Friday! It’s a humbling experience and we’d like to say a massive thank you to everyone who has come along to see us, listened to our music and bought our songs.


Tennessee Twin very kindly sent us an advance copy of the CD. The whole EP is easy to listen to, with beautiful melodies, and very personal lyrics which are drawn from their own experiences but also reflect experiences we have all had. Geoff and Victoria’s voices are captivating when singing solo and combine into very rich harmonies. As they say “Hold my hand, together we are strong” 

The five tracks. although linked by the great vocals and song writing each have their own sound - some country, some a little more UK folk, but all are great songs.

Tips In A Jar’ is available now on all major music platforms. The full CD release is available from the Tennessee Twin website and from live shows.
