Biography

Twinn Connexion, Jerry and Jay Hopkins were born in Helena, Montana on January 15, 1941. As kids, they performed country music learned from the radio, at various organizations around Helena including the Masonic Lodge, The Chittendon Home for Unwed Mothers, and the Helena Old Age Home. Following graduation from Helena High the twins enrolled in the drama department at University of Montana in Missoula. At U of M they became known as “The Hopki,” and played leading roles in the University Theatre, Jay as Shakespeare’s King Lear, and Jerry as Prospero in The Tempest. In 1963 they moved to New York where they met Robert Cessna, who created a new act for them and became their manager. Appearances at various clubs and coffee houses in Greenwich Village including the Bitter End helped them to develop their act and in 1967, they were discovered by Bill Downer, a publisher at Northern Music, MCA who took them to Decca where they were signed to do an album of songs by the writing team of Jerry Keller and Dave Blume. The album was released in 1968 to positive reviews and though reception across the midwest was enthusiastic, the album did not reach the stratosphere. The release of two singles followed, and Twinn Connexion gained some notoriety through TV appearances but not sufficient to warrant another album.
