Twin Talk

Chicago-based jazz trio Twin Talk create freely improvised music which is warm, accessible, and open. Bassist/vocalist Katie Ernst, drummer Andrew Green, and saxophonist Dustin Laurenzi exhibit an uncanny chemistry when playing together, and they appropriately named their group Twin Talk in reference to the phenomenon of cryptophasia, a personal language shared by twins. Their approaches to recording and performing are equally spontaneous, with concerts frequently veering from the setlist of composed material. Their music is knotty and sophisticated yet fluid and natural-sounding, highlighted by Ernst's heartfelt vocals. Following 2016's Twin Talk, the trio released Weaver, their most adventurous recording yet, in 2019. The three musicians began working together in 2012, releasing their first album, Sightline, under the name Laurenzi/Ernst/Green in 2013. Following several performances around their home city, including a well-received appearance at the 2014 Chicago Jazz Festival, the trio switched to the more concise moniker Twin Talk in 2015 and released their self-titled second full-length the following year. Laurenzi toured with Bon Iver throughout 2016-2017, and Justin Vernon was so impressed with a Twin Talk performance in Minneapolis that he invited the group to record at his April Base studio. With only five days of studio time, the trio wrote and recorded third full-length Weaver, which was issued through PEOPLE, a publishing platform co-launched by Vernon and Bryce Dessner of the National, in 2019.
