Justin Morgan Sean Rock Stephen Rock
Two Thumbs are Sean Rock, Justin Morgan and Stephen Rock. The band's beginning stretches back over a decade to 1986, to a high school classroom where Sean Rock and Justin Morgan, bored with class, wrote their first song together. Through the years they played separately in numerous bands while still writing together In 1990 they formed a writing partnership late one summer night atop the White River levee at their hometown of Clarendon. In 1997 Sean's younger brother Stephen joined in on the songwriting and has become an integral part of Two Thumbs. Their first independent album was released in July, 1998 after which Two Thumbs were voted top independent band in an international poll of unsigned bands. Live, all three sing and play guitar with Sean and Stephen trading off the mandolin. On the eponymously titled album Justin played the parts written for bass and drums. Two Thumbs draw on the rich musical heritage of their native Arkansas Delta blending blues, rock, country and Appalacian Folk...obvious in the intricate harmonies. Two Thumbs performed live on Arkansongs January 31, 1999.
