Security Project with
BIG Little LIONS
In 1982, iconic rock artist Peter Gabriel and his band performed in Bloomington, on the campus of Indiana University. That concert event was part of Gabriel’s world tour promoting his now-classic album Security. Among the members of Gabriel’s band was drummer Jerry Marotta, the cornerstone of the rhythm section for a poly-rhythmic album and tour.
Thirty-five years later, Marotta brings the music of Peter Gabriel, and the Security album, back to Indiana with his band THE SECURITY PROJECT.
In addition to Marotta on drums, SECURITY PROJECT features "Double-Trio" era King Crimson member TREY GUNN on Warr Guitar and Chapman stick, vocalist HAPPY RHODES, guitarist MICHAEL COZZI and keyboard artist DAVID JAMESON. These musical legends and pioneers will be performing in Indianapolis on Friday November 17th.
Opening for the band, we are pleased to welcome back to Indianapolis BIG LITTLE LIONS, the ferocious songwriting duo of Helen Austin and Paul Otten. In their collaborative body of work as Big Little Lions, Helen is the heart and soul and Paul is the bones and blood. Their songs are a dynamic fusion of feel-good and deep emotion that leave the listener with a strong emotional reaction.
Both successful singer/songwriters in their own right, they met while both on a conference songwriting member success panel and then a couple of years later started the band from afar, with Helen based on Vancouver Island, BC, Canada and Paul in Cincinnati, OH.
“The Security Project Live is a beautifully reverential and creative reinterpretation of this Peter Gabriel Classic !”
– Kevin Killen, engineer of Gabriel’s “So” record
“The Security Project expertly reimagines Peter Gabriel’s groundbreaking early output, creating an immersive experience both in performance and on its debut release Live 1. The group goes far beyond conventional tribute band territory, infusing the songs with new arrangements and elements while staying true to the spirit of the material. Gabriel enthusiasts across the board will be taken by the band’s high-octane approach full of drive, determination and energy.”
– Anil Prasad, Innerviews
"The music of Big Little Lions — the duo of Helen Austin and Paul Otten – is a blissful marriage of new folk and sophisticated pop. The award-winning songwriters have voices that blend like magic and whenever they make music together it's the cue for a heady mixture of soul, spirit and fun."
- Mariposa Folk Festival
