Our CD: Rowan & Storm
is Twotonic’s first album; almost entirely consisting of cover songs we love.
Recorded in April 2014 at Mystic Fig Studios in San Jose under the masterful guidance of producer Jeff Bohnhoff, it was released into this world in October 2014 at the Ohio Valley Filk Festival (OVFF) in Columbus, Ohio.
The title of the album comes from names of our primary guitars, Rowan and Storm.
We are really pleased with the result and hope you will be, as well.

When Tom & Sue Jeffers generously shared their videos of our CD release concert with us, Katy thought that it was time to set up our very own Youtube Channel.
