"Peace Cafe Newsletter, March 2009"

Kenn Morr was a tough act to follow for Twice Around. Luisa Tanno and Frank Veres were the Featured Artists and they walked on the stage facing an audience that was still catching its breadth. Whereas some may have been challenged by this scene, Twice Around quickly built rapport and when they started to play, it was a different direction but the music was beautiful and the harmonies reminded everyone that art and beauty take many different forms and expressions.

Frank and Luisa’s set covered many songs from their CDs, both new and old. They started with Jane Street, Downtime, Sometimes Your Love and Eventually. They remembered back to their younger days with Backyard Birds. The pace was like a roller coaster with slow songs followed by more upbeat numbers, some with two guitars, some with harmonies and some with Franks intricate finger-style guitar work and Luisa’s beautiful voice. They went on with Flying, Believe in Love, I Remember, Autumn Song and Blues Tune.

There were a number of other songs thrown in and each made you think it was the best one yet, only to be outdone by the next. As I listened to their music and the way they talked with the audience, I was struck by their ability to keep everyone focused on the song they were playing, everyone trying not to miss a single piece of the words, the music or the harmonies. The beauty was in the blend and no one could do it like they did.

"Short Sory Long Review"

Twice Around, Short Story Long ( Twelve tracks of feel-good folk-pop from the Milford duo of Frank Veres and Louisa Tanno. The standard coffeehouse tropes are here (arpeggiated acoustic guitar, copious conga- tapping, heart-on-sleeve sincerity), wed to a "60s pop sensibility. Despite the book-like packaging (complete with an index of the lyrics) the songs indulge not so much in storytelling but in sharing Life Lessons: We should believe in love, live to the fullest, not hold back Big Changes. This disc aims to uplift. If you're game, it's reaching out a gentle hand. - New Haven Advocate, April 2006


Upcoming Release (2017): "Here Before"

Debut CD: "Short Story Long"

Other Recording Projects: FreeFall, "...Flying"



Twice Around: A modern, yet semi-throwback folk duo from Connecticut.  They play original music along with a selection of familiar and unexpected covers. 

Their latest CD "Here Before" (November 2017) has 12 original songs that explore the ups and downs of all matters of the heart with an optimistic perspective.  We’ve all been “Here Before”. 

Their previous release "Short Story Long", reflects their sense of play and a retro affinity for melody. 

Their sound could be classified as singer/songwriter with an essence of Pop and Melancholy. The foundation of their music is acoustic guitar and vocals, often with harmonies and guitar interplay.  Sometimes it's just one guitar and one voice, raw and rich.  Their recordings are supported by guest musicians and a full professional production.
