"Annie & Kate | Deli Magazine"

"I’m guessing that teenage twins, Annie & Kate, never have time to be bored. High school is hectic enough, but somehow they manage to play ten instruments between them, write songs, and play shows left and right. If they’re this efficient now, I’m excited to see where they’ll go!" - Marie Meyers, The Deli Magazine (Feb 18, 2014) - The Deli Magazine


"Annie & Kate | Round Rock Leader"

"Annie and Kate Brogdon are a duet making a name for themselves in the Round Rock and Austin areas. The twins have already accomplished what many artists can only dream to achieve at such a young age." - Amanda Tolentino, Round Rock Leader Newspaper (Jan 10, 2013) - Round Rock Leader

Bio

Since starting out as a music duet, fraternal twin musicians Annie & Kate have barely stopped to catch their breath. These singer/songwriters and multi-instrumentalists are from the live music capital of the world of Austin, TX. With their strong instrumentation, songwriting abilities and signature harmonic blend, Annie & Kate have been on the rise in the Central Texas music scene.


BACKGROUND: Annie & Kate have been in music for most of their lives.  They started piano lessons at age six with private instructors, and within a few more years, they added several more instruments. Between the two of them, they each sing, write music, play piano, electric and acoustic guitar, bass, drums, percussion, ukulele, flute, clarinet and harmonica. Starting at age 10 and for several years, the girls were a part of three different teen bands, performing vocals, electric guitar, piano, bass and drums, In August 2011, they decided to start out as a music duet.


ACCOMPLISHMENTS: Over the course of three and a half years, Annie & Kate have been performing steadily in Texas.  Their musical resume includes performances at venues such as the Austin airport, the Austin Rodeo, Nutty Brown Cafe, the House of Blues - Dallas, House of Blues - Houston, The Salt Lick, the San Antonio River Walk, the Houston Toyota Center and several unofficial SXSW events. They have been requested by many organizations to sing the National Anthem at local events, and in January 2013, had the opportunity to sing at a Houston Rockets game. At the end of that year, Annie & Kate won first place in a national teen band competition hosted by the International House of Blues Foundation, placing them among six winning bands across the United States.
