Elly Hoyt returns to Australia to launch her latest album The Composers’ Voice: Celebrating Australian Women Composers. It is comprised of entirely original compositions by Australian Women Composers including Andrea Keller, Gian Slater, Georgia Weber, Louise Denson, Sonja Horbelt, Shannon Barnett, Tamara Murphy and Hoyt herself.
Motivated by recent discussions around women representation in the music industry and the experience of women in the arts, Hoyt reflects that she wanted to investigate women’s stories through composition.
The pieces explore relevant themes important to Hoyt and the composers including determination, fighting self-doubt, dismantling patriarchal systems, social change, being heard, death, grief, love and following your dreams.
“From the moment I first heard Elly sing, I knew she had that classic, indefinable thing that makes one a jazz singer. It’s not just a sound, or a choice of notes but a way of approaching a song that lets the listener know – this is the real thing.” – James Morrison
“Elly Hoyt has a standard issue Australian accent, except when she sings. Then she sounds as if she belongs in a jazz bar in Manhattan…” – Stephen Matchett (The Australian)
“Elly’s distinctive, blues-inflected voice is soulful and quietly commanding.” – Ian Patterson (All about Jazz)
Doors open at 6.30pm. Show starts at 8.00pm.
