Friday Live: Vini, Lindsay and Isaac
9th September 2017
The Trio is the side-project of the duo Lindsay & Isaac with Vinícius Galant. Vini is a new talented and active Brazilian songwriter, while the Duo has a 17-year-old musical background, including more than 400 shows around South Brazil. The Trio started their path in 2016 January. Driven by their mutual admiration for The Beatles, the Trio went towards creating original and intimate renditions of Fab four songs. Their first work together was the video for 'Junk' (McCartney), which got very positive feedback online and earned the Trio an invitation for "The Fest", in New York. Their second work came out as a tribute to Revolver's 50th anniversary: the single "She Said She Said" featuring an exclusive illustration by Klaus Voorman for the cover art. It was released at BH Beatleweek (Brazil) on Revolver's anniversary: August 5th. After only one year together, the success of the videos and the live performances are taking the Trio to their first international shows at the International Beatleweek 2017. In the UK, the Trio aims to show a set consisting of original songs (from the Duo L&I and Vinícius Galant) and some versions of Beatles songs. Visit website
