On-stage chemistry between performers is like lightning - hard to predict but electric when it happens. From Stevie Nicks and Don Henley (Stop Dragging My Heart Around) to Barbara Streisand and Kris Kristofferson (Evergreen); from Gaga and Bradley Cooper (Shallow) to Katherine Hepburn and Spencer Tracey (I Can't Give You Anything But Love): throughout time, when two take the stage, there have been performances that have created magical moments in music that are effervescent.

The Tie That Binds is a cabaret celebrating successful on-stage pairings from the jazz standards of the Great American Songbook to the popular songs of today. Crossing genres of country music, contemporary pop and songs from the Golden Age of Hollywood musical film, what brings all these styles together is the on-stage chemistry of the performers who sang them. The Tie That Binds celebrates the magic that happens when two performers work so well together they bring a touch of magic to the stage.

Showcasing the beautiful blend of  long time stage partners Carole Williams and Ian Moore The Tie That Binds delivers timeless classics and contemporary duets. Accompanied by some of Brisbane’s top musicians, Williams and Moore entertain patrons with outstanding vocals and a joyful musical performance that sparkles. Songs that transcend time such as Don't Give Up (Kate Bush and Peter Gabriel), Jackson (June Carter and Johnny Cash), Let's Call the Whole Thing Off (Astaire and Rodgers) and They Call Me the Wild Rose (Nick Cave and Kylie Minogue).

The Tie that Binds features one male and one female vocalist, and a live, four piece band.
