In the run up to Mother’s Day, Ward Thomas, the critically acclaimed UK country duo share a new track “Who We Are” from the Deluxe Edition of their debut album “From Where We Stand”. An emotive tribute to their mother, ‘Who We Are’ is song inspired by their mother’s relentless strength, wisdom and love. The Deluxe edition of their debut album ‘From Where We Stand’ was released on March 2nd. As well as ‘Who We Are’, the re – packaged version of the album includes a cover of Michael Jackson’s classic ‘Man In The Mirror’ and live versions of tracks recorded on last autumn’s UK tour.
Last weekend (7th & 8th of March), Ward Thomas played on three different stages at the C2C Festival at the O2, including a show in the Brooklyn Bowl and a performance on the Satellite Stage in the Arena itself where they played to a 16,000 strong audience. It was a monumental moment for the sisters.
