If you take a look at the vast history of country music in New Jersey, you’ll find there isn’t a vast history of country music in New Jersey, which is what makes twin sister country duo Spinn a bit of an anomaly.
Stephanie and Cheryl Lynn Spinner are city girls with country hearts, and while their New Jersey home may not be known for country music, they’re putting their cowboy boot imprint on the Garden State, and the rest of the country.
This past year Spinn won country music station NASH FM’s NASH Next regional competition – which featured over 750 bands – earning them a trip to Nashville to perform in the finals, and tour with the other Top 10 finalists from around the country. The tour gave them the opportunity to show all of America what NJ and NYC already knew – a Spinn live show is always a good time.
Hitting the stage with their unique mix of traditional country – including Cheryl Lynn playing the Autoharp – playful banter, and a heaping dose of humor, Spinn wins people over with both their music, and their personalities. It’s a combination that has brought country music fans together in many of New York and New Jersey’s top venues, including Rockwood Music Hall, The Stone Pony, and Maxwell’s.
In addition to their own shows, Spinn has also shared bills with Drew Baldridge, Trent Harmon, Kalie Shorr, and LANCO.
With two successful EPs already under their belt – A Little Crazy, and City Country – and a third, titled Freedom, on its way this summer, Spinn are thoroughly enjoying living out their dreams, as they’re well on their way to being in rotation alongside the giants of the genre.
