KILLING HEIDI CELEBRATE 20 YEAR ANNIVERSARY

Filed under: CD Launches, Festivals & Major Events — site admin @ 1:11 pm

KILLING HEIDI CELEBRATE 20 YEAR ANNIVERSARY
WITH FIRST LIVE SHOWS IN 10 YEARS + DIGITAL RELEASE OF
‘REFLECTOR’
25th November 2016 - Queenscliff Music Festival, Queensciff VIC

Ella & Jesse Hooper and 123 Agency are thrilled to announce the digital release of the iconic naughties album ‘Reflector’ by Killing Heidi. Reflector will be available on iTunes and streaming services very soon! To celebrate 20 years since the band formed, Killing Heidi will be performing exclusive sets of their biggest hits for the first time in 10 years, including headlining the opening night of the 20th Queenscliff Music Festival.

“It’s a celebration not a reformation” says Jesse “We thought this was a really special opportunity to reflect on that era, as it’s Queenscliff’s 20th anniversary - and we started Killing Heidi 20 years ago too!”

It’s been twenty years since triple j unearthed the Hooper siblings as Killing Heidi with their folk pop song, Kettle. The Australian public embraced the duo who soon became a band, releasing debut album Reflector in March 2000. Singles ‘Mascara’ and ‘Weir’ made Reflector a blow-out success and the album makes up an integral part of Aussie indie music story – one that hasn’t been told digitally until now.

Reflector took out four ARIA awards and reached 4 x platinum status, the album spawned 4 hit singles including the number one single ‘Mascara’ and teen anthem ‘Weir’. Weir placed #2 and Mascara #14 in triple j’s Hottest 100 in 1999. The Hooper siblings won the critically-acclaimed APRA song-writers of the year award for the album. The album launched the band into international markets, and the Hooper siblings followed up with another two top twenty albums and four top-twenty hit singles.

For old and new Killing Heidi fans alike this digital re-release has been a long time coming. “Fans have been asking for years for Reflector online, It’s amazing that generations of people still feel connected to this music, they want to blast it… And now they can! It’s great, it feels like coming full circle.” - Ella Hooper

“We’ve been asked to perform live many times over the years and have always declined. But it just goes to show – never say never. I’m ready to celebrate that amazing time and also to claim that part of my journey as a songwriter. To join such a stellar lineup at this year’s Queenscliff Music Festival is the perfect way to return to the stage for us. There are so many great artists playing this year, we can’t wait! We love Queenscliff Music Festival and usually go with our family, so to be busting out the family band to perform this year is going to be KILLER. What Killing Heidi’s music meant and still means to the people that shared that amazing time with us really blows me away. I meet so many people, especially young women, who tell me how Killing Heidi inspired them to be themselves, back themselves or even start a band, and I’m completely honoured that it had that effect on people.” - Ella Hooper

“I’m really excited to revisit the Killing Heidi days, they were a big part of my youth and I can’t wait to perform these songs live for people who loved them too. We’ll play all our biggest hits from our first singles Weir and Mascara through to our later releases ‘I Am’ and ‘Calm Down’ We also have some other exciting things on the horizon so stay tuned for more announcements”. - Jesse Hooper

Tay Oskee Releases Shelter EP

Filed under: CD Launches, Tours — site admin @ 12:49 pm

Tay Oskee
After only a short time on the scene Oskee has put together a masterful collection of beautiful ballads of love and hope, fireside sing-alongs, dynamic playing and rich and brilliantly produced sounds.
The new five-tracker treads a line between Nick Drake-esque folk and punchy riff driven roots music and conjures vivid images of those camp trips on the beach, singing around a fire and enjoying the simple life with friends.
To support the release Oskee is playing a handful of winter shows over the month of July.
‘Shelter’ EP is available at all good online retailers.

Eagle And The Wolf-Harry Hookey & Grizzlee Train

Filed under: blues music, country music, CD Launches, Gigs — site admin @ 4:56 pm

Eagle And The Wolf announce debut Sydney headline show at Newtown Social Club
Special Guests: Harry Hookey & Grizzlee Train
Singer-songwriter Sarah Humphreys and country-blues musician Kris Morris met and decided to make a life and music together as Eagle And The Wolf. Together they are truly magical.
Their debut single ‘Mama, Son and The Holy Ghost’ has had a huge response. After premiering on Triple J’s Roots ’N’ All it was also playlisted on Double J and reached Number 1 on the Amrap Chart.

Their self titled album, ‘Eagle & The Wolf’, a collection of ten songs co-produced by the duo alongside Syd Green (Matt Tonks, Dirty Lucy, Iota) in an old farm house in the Southern Highlands is as raw and heartfelt as it gets and the performances are stunning. Released in March the album has received rave reviews from Rhythms Magazine, Rolling Stone and Sydney Morning Herald to name but a few.

Now Eagle & The Wolf take to the stage with a full band for their very first Sydney headline show with Harry Hookey and Grizzlee Train along for the ride.
Hookey will be joining Eagle and The Wolf after a year of relentless gigging that has seen him playing shows and festivals from one end of Australia to the other (literally), throughout Europe and Cuba! His debut album ‘Misdiagnosed’ was nominated for an ARIA for Best Blues & Roots album and he won the International Songwriter award for the title track in 2014. He recently supported the UK’s Jamie Lawson on a national tour and is in the studio recording his 2nd album, due out later in 2016.

A romping stomping roots duo, Grizzlee Train take the sound of vintage blues and drench it with filthy modern guitar licks and pulsating percussion. They have spent much of the last year touring nationally and internationally as part of the Kasey Chambers band. Grizzlee Train’s debut EP ‘Come Back Around’ was released in January 2015 to a wave of positive reviews and continues to be frequently spun on national radio all over the country. A truly dynamic duo, they blend an old school core with sharp new-age kicks - a stripped back firing of raw energy and honest music.

Eagle And The Wolf with Special Guests Harry Hookey & Grizzlee Train
When: Sunday June 19
Where: Newtown Social Club, 387 King St, Newtown Ph (02) 9550 3974
Time: Doors open 6pm, Show starts 630pm
