We are Mona and Lisa, two 13 year old twins. Our passion is to play and write music that really touches people's hearts and souls. We don’t like most of the stuff that plays in the charts. We prefer music of artists who have something more to say than “Look, how much money I made with my last record”.
Very likely we are influenced by our Dad who had operated a recording studio. There we had met good music and dedicated musicians since we were kids. We always used to dance and sing while other kids were stuck in their computer games or TVs :). So we had a beautiful childhood where we developed our passion for real, handmade music like e.g. "The Beatles" had produced.
By the age of 10 we learned to play guitar and drums and also tried various other instruments. We regularly performed at school concerts and other events. Soon we started to sing in two voices which was not so easy in the beginning. But we practiced: There was literally no car drive without us singing and drumming on the back seats … Well, actually it’s the same today.
The next step was to form a band together with our parents. Our Dad was playing keyboard and extra learned to play guitar and bass. He is our band-leader as he has a huge musical experience and engineering know-how from his active studio times. Our step mommy learned to play saxophone and percussion and now, we are a band. Of course, we want to have a band with same-aged boys and girls later. But first we need to learn grooving with other musicians in various music styles and get some recording and engineering know-how. By playing in a band we have already learned so much. Continuing this way will later keep us independent from major labels. That will ensure us making the music we want to play and prevent us from being puppets of the music industry.
Our music and future aims:
Till today we've been covering the greater part of our songs, but right now we are learning how to write great songs ourselves. With “Alone”, track no. 23, we started our songwriting “career” and besides school and practicing our instruments/singing, song-writing is our main interest at the moment.
Why don't you listen to our music clips and check out the stories and pics we've posted on our official MonaLisa-Twins website? We would be happy if you visited us!
We hope you’ll enjoy our music. Of course, we would love to echo out of your loudspeakers! Don’t forget to pick the lyrics from our website and sing along with us loudly!
