Ella Hooper Event Image

Award-winning singer/songwriter Ella Hooper, best known for her work in Killing Heidi, is now taking the stage as a solo artist. In April, she'll play live at Kingston's City Hall, weaving together personal stories and lyric-driven country, folk and Americana influenced music.

Joining Ella on guitar, dobro, banjo and harmonica is multi-instrumentalist Michael Hubbard (The Blue Bottles, Eagle and the Worm) with support from Melody Pool.

 "It's been a very rewarding year," Ella says. "Changing things up made it all feel fresh again. And I've realised that making music and playing it live for people is the best job in the world." 

Ella Hooper

Ella Hooper was still a teenager when she burst onto the Australian music scene – Unearthed by Triple J when she was just 13, Ella scored her first number one with the single ‘Mascara’ on her 17th birthday. And at 18, she became the first woman to be awarded APRA’s Songwriter of the Year.  
 
After releasing three hit albums with Killing Heidi, Ella embarked on a solo career. Her album, Small Town Temple – written in her hometown of Violet Town – has been hailed as a new beginning, showcasing Ella’s deeply personal song writing.  
 
After a multitude of gold and platinum records and four ARIA Awards, Ella remains committed to her craft. As she sings on Small Town Temple: “Still strong, still on a mission.”

Reviews

Ella’s stage attack is more refined now than it has ever been, charming all near her with her acrobatics, persona and dance moves – a true performer does not begin to describe her power. - Glamadelaide    

Ella Hooper's Small Town Temple is the most impressive work of the Killing Heidi frontwoman's solo career. - Canberra Times
