I think we are on a bit of a binge with musicians in Perth lately! Introducing this week Ebony from Quartet with a Twist! Quartet with a Twist has been around for nearly 10 years now - why you ask are they called Quartet with a Twist? Well, the twist is instead of a cello, they perform with a double bass which completely elevates their sound. If you don't believe me, check out their music below:
The Quartet with a Twist Team is classically trained and maintain numerous orchestral positions throughout Perth, including the Perth Symphony Orchestra, Perth Chamber Orchestra, Fremantle Chamber Orchestra, and the WA Philharmonic (WA Ballet), just to name a few.

Aside from necessities, what one thing could you not go a day without?
What's an old wives tale that you swear by?

It’s been a while since I’ve done a lot of reading, but I’m a sucker for romantic novels so Nicholas Sparks it is.

I’m not sure if it’s classified as weird, but definitely something that I don’t understand is when I have guests over, they leave their shoes by the door at my request, but when they leave, they bring the shoes across the room to put them back on and then proceed to walk across the room…

What to eat for breakfast, what to eat for lunch, what to eat for dinner.
