The Creators of Tahoe '68
Drawing from their childhood experiences singing together professionally and their love of a good drummer joke, Laura Good and Linda Good were inspired to write a dramedy about a dysfunctional family band whose love of music binds them together, yet often tears them apart.
Singer/songwriters and twin sisters Laura Good and Linda Good are founders of the alternative pop band, The Twigs. Since their start in Chicago in the late 90s, they have recorded over ten albums and toured the world, with their songs heard on radio, and in TV/film. Branching out into musical theater, they wrote the book, music and libretto for the musical LADYSHIP, which was a finalist for the Richard Rodgers Award for Musical Theater in 2020. LADYSHIP was a featured show for The AnO Theater Accelerator 2020, and an Official Grand Jury Selection and Full Production for NYMF 2019 at the Alice Griffith Theater NYC. They are currently producing and recording a concept album version of the songs from LADYSHIP, which will be released in 2022.
Laura and Linda’s own musical influences are diverse. After an early childhood living in Mexico City, they grew up in Chicago, as the youngest of five daughters raised by a single-mom. The sisters taught themselves piano and guitar by playing songs from an old jazz fake book found in a piano bench. Harmonizing together with their mom’s records of Jesus Christ Superstar and The Beatles was a family pastime — when they weren’t fist-fighting over who got to play the piano after school. Linda attended the Chicago Academy for the Performing Arts High School, studied composition and film at the University of Illinois, and abroad in the UK. Laura has a degree in music composition and creative writing from Columbia College, and was a Weisman Memorial Scholar (in Music).
Both Linda and Laura are multi-instrumentalists, composers and music producers. Their songs, compositions and music production have been heard in many TV shows and films including “90210”, “Men in Trees” and “Cruel Intentions 3”. Individually, Linda has toured as a keyboardist with Jane’s Addiction, The Mars Volta, Stew, and many others. Linda is based out of Los Angeles, and Laura is divides her time between the east and west coasts.
