About Free the Genie:
Free The Genie is on a mission to bridge the gaps between band and DJ, man and machine. Their live performances have apprehended the attention of the young, the old, the sitters, the dancers, the traditionalists and the progressive. A team with varied intentions; Ty Burrell (vocals/synth/guitar/controllerist) brings texture and emotion to an FTG set, while Jack Letizia (bass/percussion) feathers colour and rhythm and motivates dance floors with a hyperactive pelvis. The metronome of the band's rhythms are held by "Natasha" a mechanical self-playing drum robot....yep, you heard right.
Their inaugural year consisted of a sold-out headlining show at the world-renowned club, Elsewhere, 3 appearances at Nautic Giants, the Weird Science Festival, Sounds of Sunday, and a residency slot at elsewhere’s sister venue - wherelse. A multitude of gigs was also performed in venues that will one day be thanked for transforming the culture thirsty Gold Coast. They draw upon a diverse and ever-expanding range of influences, with Talking Heads, Prince, Bowie, Ratatat, The Rapture & Tame Impala being just the tip of the iceberg. During a Free The Genie set, an honest, jovial and ego-free approach to dance based activity is encouraged. The soundtrack to which will consist of both original compositions and original renditions of songs written by the artists that have shaped their lives.
