The Chung Yen Twins (www.chungyentwins.com), an acoustic guitar and vocal duo from Lexington, Kentucky, have announced the release of their self-titled debut CD. The disc contains twelve original songs and an acoustic arrangement of The Allman Brothers “In Memory of Elizabeth Reed.” The CD and digital distribution are available online at CD Baby and iTunes (http://cdbaby.com/cd/chungyentwins).
The Chung Yen Twins are J.D. Wright and David Cubine, an acoustic guitar duo creating and performing a musical palette of rock, blues, jazz, and roots music. Cubine and Wright initially met as teacher and student in a martial arts program, but soon discovered their artistic compatibility and mutual passion for fearless improvisation across a broad range of styles. “It set the tone for our musical future together,” Cubine recalls.
