Sidekick is guitar duo Ziggy and Miles' debut CD release. The duo's 2023/24 season begins with a 13 concert tour of Australia with more performances in NYC, Chicago, Boston, Philadelphia, Florida & NZ.
Sidekick features new works written for the brothers, their own “transfixingly beautiful” (Limelight) arrangement of Debussy’s Clair de Lune, and works that have shaped their musical identity from Spain, Latin America, and Australia.
The title track “Sidekick” is a character piece written for the brothers by award winning composer Katie Jenkins. In Jenkins’ own words, “They make fun of each other but need each other, they compete with one another but are stronger together. Sidekick satires their unbreakably strong but at times hilarious brotherly dynamic.”
“Australian guitarist brothers making history” (The Age), Ziggy and Miles are two of their home country’s finest young musicians forging an international career. Their performances are known for their transfixing synchronicity and subtlety, exploiting the instruments’ full range of colours and techniques.
