Biography

Lisa Theo, Kim Field and the Titans of Twang pay tribute to the classic country/western duet tradition established by George Jones and Tammy Wynette, Conway Twitty and Loretta Lynn, Gram Parsons and Emmylou Harris, and others. The Titans of Twang have quickly established themselves as a new force on the Northwest music scene, playing two showcase concerts at the recent Wintergrass Festival and performing at the Slow Food Roots Festival, the OIalla Bluegrass Festival, and Seattle venues such as the Highway 99 Blues Club and the Columbia City Theater.

Lisa Theo (vocals, mandolin, guitar) was a founding member of two beloved Seattle-area bands, Ranch Romance and Mel Cooleys, and has shared the stage with the likes of Riders in the Sky, Western Swing legend Johnny Gimble, guitarist Scott Nygaard, and banjo virtuoso Alison Brown. With Ranch Romance, she toured across Canada and throughout the US West Coast with k.d. lang, and performed in major folk festivals and venues across the United States and Canada. She and her bands have opened shows for Tammy Wynette, Robin and Linda Williams, Guy Clarke, Joe Ely, and Delbert McClinton.

Kim Field is an internationally celebrated singer, harmonica player, and guitarist. Field spent several years fronting the Slamhound Hunters, whose performances and two albums for Satin Records, 4/1 Mind and Private Jungle, were strongly received in both Europe and the United States. He currently performs with Lisa Theo and with the Mighty Titans of Tone. Over the years Field has appeared on bills with such rhythm and blues legends as Muddy Waters, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Robert Cray, the Fabulous Thunderbirds, Gregg Allman, James Cotton, Otis Rush, John Lee Hooker, Albert Collins, the Righteous Brothers, Walter Horton, and Big Mama Thornton. He has appeared at the San Francisco Blues Festival, performed on New Year’s Eve in New York City’s Central Park, and was a featured performer at Seattle's Bumbershoot Festival seven years running.
