Ella Hooper made her entrance onto the Australian music landscape as the technicolour teenage frontwoman of her high school band, Killing Heidi.
Ella joins Geelong Arts Centre for a free online gig packed full of acoustic rock and folk renditions, heartfelt ballads and unreleased material from her upcoming album.
At age 13 she won the national broadcaster Triple J’s unearthed competition and has been writing and releasing intense, intelligent pop music ever since. She is also a radio host, TV presenter, DJ and self-confessed music junkie. Her songs of angst and wonder sound-tracked the early 2000's for cool kids and outsiders alike.
Melodic and anthemic, Ella’s song writing and colourful image cut a swathe through the mainstream, winning her a stack of awards (ARIA’s, APRA, ACRA’s) many of which she was the first female and youngest person to receive. Ella has featured on the cover of Rolling Stone not once but twice as well as every other music publication worth its’ salt and played the main stage of every major festival in Aus and plenty overseas as well. Ella’s time with Killing Heidi cemented her as one of Australia’s most recognised and distinctive front-women. Ella’s music has since traversed pop to rock, roots to country back to alt pop and just about everything in between.
