‘These shows are full of colour, from our classical pieces, where you could hear a pin drop, to explosive guitar shredding over Latin and world music grooves.’

Two of the Gold Coast’s iconic artists, Felicity Lawless and Black Rabbit George (aka Tijuana Cartel frontman Paul George) have just released their first album together, Symbiosis. The duo are bringing their spectacular show to Byron Theatre on 4 December. They will be joined by vocalist, oud and guitar player, Shai Shriki (of Israel), who is a composer and performer of contemporary music with traditional sounds from the Middle East, Hebrew songs and Spanish guitar.

Lawless says Symbiosis explores their joint passion for Romany, Middle Eastern and flamenco music. ‘We both love to blend traditional music with our own flavours and seem to be on an eternal mission to create as much guitar beauty as possible. Our Guitar journeys shows are an immersion in the guitar’s infinite possibilities. 

‘It is so exciting to be joined by Shai for the Byron launch as he is one of my favourite guitarists and he really sets a mystical scene with his music. 

‘These shows are full of colour, from our classical pieces, where you could hear a pin drop, to explosive guitar shredding over Latin and world music grooves.’

Recorded in Black Rabbit’s studio, Symbiosis is a collection of guitar music accompanied only by cajon and percussion. The first single ‘Zarma’ is already available on Spotify and YouTube with the rest of the album to be released online just before the Byron Theatre show in December. It is available for purchase as a CD at their shows.

Felicity Lawless and Black Rabbit George: Guitar Journeys – Symbiosis album launch with support by Shai Shriki at Byron Theatre 4 December at 6pm.

Tickets: byroncentre.com.au.
