Minimum Venue Requirements:

It is expected that ALL venues and event locations be fitted with ALL equipment necessary to facilitate a professional event of the highest quality (this obviously does not apply to Street/Busking Festivals). Of course we understand that the level and type of equipment necessary is dependent on the form of event (concert halls vs outdoor music festivals for example), and that it is sometimes necessary (for example for private bookings) for equipment to be hired in, however to retain artistic integrity and to enable Geordie to deliver a performance at the level expected of him, it would be only in specific situations in which he would agree to perform in locations with anything less than the following:

FOH:

 - high quality PA incl.

 - ​minimum​ 2 x 12" mid/hi range speakers

 - 1 x Sub

 

Stage Monitoring:

 - 1 x on stage monitor positioned in front of performance position 

 - 1-3 x DI (depending on the event and the number of guitars)

 - any standard microphone for speaking (eg. SM58)

House Controls:

 - high quality mixing desk

Geordie also requires cold tap water backstage, and all snacks should be fairtrade where possible.

Of course Geordie will bring all required instruments and pedals.

Geordie Little, an Australian living in Berlin, plays a unique mix of percussive lap and fingerstyle guitar, combining melodies, harmonics, chords and percussion simultaneously and seamlessly switching mid-tune between lap and standard positions.  

 

570 Characters / 85 Words

Growing up in Adelaide, South Australia, Geordie Little is an innovative acoustic guitarist now based in Berlin, Germany. Having developed his unique style on the streets, and refined it on stages around the world, he combines percussive finger and lap styles to create something truly his own. Mixing percussion, chords, melodies, and harmonics simultaneously, and taking influence as much from the electronic and post-classical worlds as from his peers, Geordie creates aurally and visually entrancing compositions, redefining the boundaries of what the guitar can be.

Geordie Little is a solo acoustic finger and lap style guitarist, originally from Adelaide, South Australia, now based in Berlin, Germany. Coming from a high school background of classical and jazz guitar, Geordie started experimenting with new age fingerstyle and two hand tapping techniques around the start of 2011. Not long after, he started busking on the streets of Adelaide and began to explore more percussive techniques, eventually starting to incorporate some lap style techniques towards the end of that year.   At the start of 2012, Geordie decided to leave university in Adelaide, move to Berlin, and become a full time musician and street performer. Since then, Geordie has developed his own mix of lap and finger style guitar, incorporating percussion, chords, and melodic lines concurrently, to create intricate acoustic soundscapes that don't belong to any one style. Unconventionally choosing to stick with nylon string guitars, including a self-built 8-string flamenco, Geordie's lap style is unlike that of the current wave of steel string guitarists playing the popular 'air tap' technique, and is a much smoother, distinctly percussive, yet melodically driven adaptation.  
Drawing influences from the obvious Andy Mckees, Antoine Dufours and Kaki Kings, Geordie also takes much of his inspiration from electronic artists such as Bonobo, Apparat, and Kyson and post classical composers such as Olafur Arnalds, Nils Frahm and Lubomyr Melnyk.   

Since late 2011, Geordie has recorded a number of solo albums, collaborated with electronic musician Kyson, formed bands Orae and Place & Picture, and released and toured an album as one half of acoustic guitar duo Little Spencer. Geordie was also nominated for Best Music in the IndieBerlin Awards 2015 and has produced or co-produced four highly acclaimed, award winning shows at various Fringe Festivals. He is also co-founder of the Berlin Acoustic Guitar Nights, musicians rights organisation Berlin Street Music, and globally acclaimed circus company FAUNA. He also holds endorsement deals with Augustine Strings and Ortega Guitars, and is signed to US based acoustic guitar label FretMonkey Records.
