Black Rabbit George is a new incarnation for Tijuana Cartel’s guitarist/singer/songwriter Paul George. It’s an opportunity for Paul to further explore the acoustic guitar that is at the heart of Tijuana Cartel and to pursue his long-time interest in folk and roots music.

From the wellspring of childish fantasy and a lifetime of musical evolution emerges the Black Rabbit. This is the story-telling talent of Paul A George, the musician whose guitar drives the unique sounds of Tijuana Cartel, one of the tightest and most sought-after bands on the Australian festival circuit.


Accidents sometimes turn into fireworks. It was almost without realizing and despite himself, that the artist soon to be known as Elliot Maginot laid down his first fragments of songs on a small and cheap audio recorder.

With little experience in some short-lived garage bands, slaughtering skate-punk tunes in his teenage years, Elliot was far from considering the guitar as the instrument with which to captivate and enchant an audience. He will have to go through what he describes as a “hermit period ” for the instrument to reveal all its potential, and for Elliot to discover his ability to create beautiful melodies.
