Carlie and Yosi
A fusion of acoustic and electric, loops and layers,
sounds and songs to journey
Carlie Fairburn was the lead vocalist in Australia's world music band "Yellow Monday" for some years
before setting off for India, where she had the amazing experience of writing her first song.
Since this magical moment,
she has continued traveling and composing original music,
with her writing book under her arm and guitar on her back.
Collaborating with musicians from all over the world,
Carlie has sung in Australia, India, Turkey, Spain and much of Europe
and has busked to audiences across the globe.
Carlie, an Australian born singer and songwriter,
together her Israeli husband and fellow musician Yosi Chopen create "LoopINside -
A show that is currently touring Israel like wildfire.
Carlie and Yosi have played
Jacobs Ladder Festival,
Yearot Menashe Festival,
The Healing Music Festival
Zorba the Buddha Festival
and have warmed up for Israel's Neil Young, Geva Alon.
Carlie has performed with Nahko Bear and Asaf Avidan
and they currently travel the country with their little girl Yemaya,
who is learning to live 'life on the road':).
Together they combine their Australian/Israel roots
to present a lively performance of Folk based original songs
written by Carlie, performed using a Loop Station and many instruments
(2 guitars, didgeridoo, native american flute, melodica, many forms of percussion).
Acoustic Folk Groove entwined with an Ethnic Tribal Twist.
They record LIVE in LOOPs on stage,
layering vocals and sounds
to build the songs to a sound much bigger than the two of them.
The audience is hypnotised as Carlie's stage presence carries the show to the next level.
Vocal harmonies fill the stage,
Deep groove and rhythm entice the feet to move,
and Carlie's lyrics transport the audience to another world:
A hypnotic journey from beginning to end.
