Biography

The Twining Brothers have been writing relentlessly and performing since their teens, and are destined to become one of Canada's top songwriting tandems. They are skilled musicians and confident performers. They write powerful songs that are radio-freindly with an edge.

Mike credits their early success to their music. "It's ALL about writing great songs and getting them out there and having people feel something.”

"We can really feed of each other writing music," says Andrew. "It really works well because we have the same influences and we grew up listening to music together. We can mold our songs and make them something better."

While still in highschool they formed the Vancouver indie-rock band Fully Loaded with bassist Chris Ball and drummer Jovan. Gut-wrenching guitar riffs, pitch-perfect vocal harmonies, rumbling bass and explosive drum beats: this is the essence of Fully Loaded.

Lyrics

Hollow

Written By: Andrew and Mike Twining

Hollow
Performed by Fully Loaded (Canada)

Inside my head
I know that it’s all wrong
Inside my head
I’m already so low

Every bleeding hand
Reaching out for me
Well I’m too wounded now
To break these chains from off of me

‘Cause I don’t believe you when
You say it’s all okay
And all your promises
They died with yesterday
So, now I know, I’m already hollow

Inside my head
Thoughts are overflowing
Inside my head
I need some reloading

Every bleeding hand
Reaching out for me
Well I’m too wounded now
To break these chains from off of me

‘Cause I don’t believe you when
You say it’s all okay
And all your promises
They died with yesterday
So, now I know, I’m already hollow

Burn Me Up

Written By: Andrew and Mike Twining

BURN ME UP
Performed by Fully Loaded (Canada)

Was it something I said
That got you so bitter?
Was it my lack of strength
That made you so damn mad?
So what happens next?
Are you staying or leaving?
So she said I’m going today and it’s over again.

And it burns me up.
It burns me inside.
It breaks my heart that I don’t mind. (x2)

I’ll blame the stress
For the goddamn headaches.
I’m glad my happiness
Is waving me goodbye.
It don’t make much sense
Is it something I’m missing?

She said I can’t take anymore as she stormed out the door,
Yelling at me all the way down the hall
With her words I ignite this inferno inside.
It’s taking away my pride.

It burns me up.
It burns me inside.
It breaks my heart that I don’t mind.

It burns me up
That I can’t think right.
In my ashes I’ll hide
And I don’t mind.
I don’t mind.

So she said I’m sorry to say that it’s over again.
The words that she said I just can’t understand.
While she beats down on me
Am I too blind to see?
The apathetic part of me.

And it burns me up.
It burns me inside.
It breaks my heart that I don’t mind.

It burns me up
That I can’t think right.
In my ashes I’ll hide
And I don’t mind.
The apathetic part of me.
