Jagwar Twin Signs With Big Loud Rock
Jagwar Twin, the musical alter ego of songwriter and storyteller Roy English, has signed with Big Loud Rock, the new alternative/rock imprint of Big Loud Records.
Twin’s current single, “Happy Face,” has earned over 62 million streams and was released independently in partnership with digital design and experience studio, CTHDRL.
Jagwar Twin was created out of English’s journey to self-awakening. The pandemic gave him space for self-exploration, and what bloomed from that period birthed Jagwar Twin’s sound, sentiment, and mission statement: to find spirit in our shared humanity with the fragile state of the world emotionally, physically, environmentally, and politically.
“Jagwar Twin has incredible energy and creativity that makes them infectious,” says Big Loud Rock President, Greg Thompson. “They live on the cutting edge when it comes to the way they interact with their fans and Big Loud rock is thrilled to be on this journey with them.”
“From my childhood to being an adult, there has been this recurring theme of feeling misunderstood,” English shares. “People would make fun of my voice, which to be fair was really bad at the time. I never fit in with ‘the boys’… or the girls, really, and my music never fit into an industry box. But even when my situation seemed impossible, something inside compelled me to keep going.”
He continues, “I believe we’re coming into an era where new ideas, feelings, and authenticity will be valued again. An unknown, undiscovered artist with no backing, money, or traditional promo can ‘make it’ if they create something compelling.”
Jagwar Twin will tour throughout 2022, starting with a headline show on June 24 at the Troubadour in LA.
