MUSIC duo the No Frills Twins have been announced as one of the supporting acts in the upcoming Sheppard tour.

The Northern Rivers artists will be part of the Keep Me Crazy tour with independent Brisbane act Sheppard and singer songwriter Reece Mastin.

The tour will take the local singers the Eaton's Hill Hotel in Brisbane on May 27, The Croxton in Melbourne on June 10 and The Metro Theatre in Sydney on June 11.

Arna and Vanessa Rodgers, the No Frills Twins, are an alternative pop duo that mixes their personal take on fashion and style with music that explores topics rarely touched by popular music, such as mental health and body image.

Their latest release was the song Love Me Tender, a catchy pop song that marked a new sound for the young artists.
