Fiona and Trysette were immensely entertaining individually and the chemistry between them was absolutely delightful. It is rare to find performers with such highly developed technical skills, emotional expression, and engaging stage presence...

This November, Aussie artists Trysette and Fiona Joy return to the U.S. for a series of dates at theaters and intimate clubs, a triumphant return after the pair’s successful tours in 2012 and 2013 drew critical acclaim and garnered live media appearances on morning television in New York, Colorado and Arizona. On November 8th, they kick off their tour of Southwestern cities including Boulder, Denver, Albuquerque, Sedona, Tempe, Tucson, and Julian, CA; they'll be joined by the Finzer Mahoney Duo for the dates in New Mexico and Arizona.
With this tour, the headliners bring fresh new music to the stage. Fiona Joy has new works from Signature, which she is in the process of recording in various formats including DSD; recently, she contributed her new track “Grace” to Winds of Samsara, a collaborative album that debuted at #1 on Billboard’s New Age chart. Meanwhile, Trysette is issuing a new album of live concert favorites called Silky Fingers while she continues recording a new album of original songs with her mentor Bob Malone (singer, songwriter and keyboardist for John Fogerty).
These solo artists, both from rural NSW Australia, are classically-trained with a penchant for the grand piano…and that’s where their similarities end. They met in 2011 and quickly developed a mutual admiration for each other's piano-based music, and decided to tour together with the intention of playing only grand pianos; hence the Two Grand I'm Yours tour concept. Blending musical worlds with stories both humorous and heartbreaking, they take the audience on a journey through Pop, Folk and Contemporary Piano styles, delivering an unforgettable evening in their own unique, fresh, and enchanting way.
Byron Shire, Editor of Echo Express, reviewed the 2013 show stating “These talented young ladies performed in Byron Bay recently and I was very impressed. Not only with their versatility, technique and musicianship, but also their audience participation and professionalism. They are of international standard and deserve much success.”
Beyond their excellent musicianship, audiences also enjoy the duo’s Aussie humor apparent in their "cheeky" videos. Boston’s Jordan Rich, of WBZ Radio, commented “When they have finished with the piano, Trysette and Fiona could take up as comedians. They are a brilliant pair of artists making us laugh one minute, cry the next, and dance in our seats with music that touches our every sense.”
Their funny, catty tongue-in-cheek YouTube videos about touring together have delighted viewers worldwide; they can be found at http://www.YouTube.com/2grandimyours. For all tour dates, videos, guest artists and links at http://www.twograndimyours.com.
Outside of their shared tour dates, Fiona Joy is booked to play two solo dates on either side of the tour, one on October 26th at Sutter Creek Theatre in CA, and another on Dec. 5th at Keyboard Concepts in Agoura Hills, CA after the tour. Trysette will play a solo gig in Lubbock, TX on November 30th at Rockin’ Box on 33rd.
