National recording artists: Dúo del Sol (violin/guitar)

Deemed “avant sonic acrobats” by LA Weekly, Duo del Sol’s music sparkles with kinetic energy and soul.

At once compared to Radiohead while still bringing in a Gypsy element reminiscent of Django and Grappelli, this duo puts on a concert show that excites audiences and thrills fans from coast to coast.  Passionate, energetic, romantic and intelligent, violinist, Javier Orman (from Uruguay) and guitarist, Tom Farrell, (Chicago, Ill.) are artists in every sense of the word.  The creativity of their original music has been called nothing less than, “genius.”

Each musician brings their own special quality to the stage and to each composition…Antonio Banderas with a bit of El Mariachi thrown in.

On stage, this duo takes no prisoners!  They harness the raw energy of a rock band by wildly stretching their instruments beyond traditional limits.  Guitarist Tom Farrell’s musical beginnings were inspired by Black Sabbath, the Cult, Metallica, and Led Zeppelin and violinist Javier Orman is addicted to powerful, expressive music, saying that great music transports him to alternate universes.

Recently, along with too many credits to mention, Farrell recorded for the soundtrack of actor Will Ferrell’s movie, “Casa de mi Padre.”  Orman has toured with the Entropy Ensemble (a hybrid chamber/jazz group), performed throughout Latin America, and teaches children through a program he founded called “Kidzymphony.”

From Australia: Two Grand, I’m Yours (two singers with a grand piano!)

Romantic, sensual, exciting:  PIANO & VOICE 

The best of two musical worlds! 

TRYSETTE, the sensual singer/songwriter and FIONA JOY HAWKINS, the evocative mistress of romantic piano, “are like Chianti and cognac.”

ABOUT THE SHOW

Trysette and Fiona are two of Australia’s finest contemporary solo artists.  They are returning to Lannie’s and their tour of the United States, celebrating their love of music and the grand piano.  Their show, TWO GRAND, I’M YOURS, offers the best of musical worlds where genres collide, styles merge, notes fly and voices soar.  Experience a fusion of Celtic, Neo-classical, Folk, and Pop genres.  Trysette, the sensual enigma with the husky voice, and Fiona Joy Hawkins, the elegant lady of ivory, offer an intoxicating and unforgettable night of baby grands and gorgeous vocals.  If you like Adele, Fiona Apple, Norah Jones, George Winston or Enya, then you’ll love this show!

The pair’s previous, successful TO GRAND, I’M YOURS tour, gained critical acclaim and resulted in live appearances on radio and television in New York, Colorado and Arizona.

ABOUT THE PERFORMERS

TRYSETTE – a popular indie artist in her native Australia, is about to release her fourth album, which she has been recording in L.A. over the past 12 months with her mentor Bob Malone (singer, songwriter and keyboardist for John Fogerty).  Her previous album, “Le Cafe Ancien,” enjoyed CMJ-charting airplay in the US, including the unforgettable single, “Silky Fingers.”

FIONA JOY HAWKINS – an ARIA Finalist (the Aussie Grammys), debuts pieces from her brand new album “600 Years in a Moment;” she works with Grammy-winners Will Ackerman (founder of Windham Hill Records) and Corin Nelsen, and has several albums with ABC Music (Australia).  Her previous album, “Blue Dream,” won her a ZMR Album of the Year award and in 2013 she was a finalist in the Independent Music Awards for Best Live Performance across all categories, alongside the legendary Pete Seeger.
