Joining him on the night is one of Australia’s hottest rhythm sections consisting of – Shannon Sol Carroll, Oj Newcomb and Max Sportelli along with award winning jazz vocalist Elly Hoyt.

Elly Hoyt

Winning the renowned Generation in Jazz vocal scholarship, judged by James Morrison in 2008, projected Elly into the Australian jazz scene where she has sung alongside a long list of top Australian and international jazz musicians and vocalists such as, James Morrison, Tim Firth, Phil Stack, Matt McMahon, John Morrison, Steve Newcomb, Mat Jodrell, Chris McNulty, Jim Pugh, John Hoffman, James Muller, Sam Anning, Tony Gould, David Jones, Mark Fitzgibbon to name a few.

James Morrison: “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”.

Elly has sung her way around the country performing at the Melbourne Women’s International Jazz Festival (VIC), Magnetic Island Jazz Festival (QLD), Broadbeach Blends of Jazz Festival (QLD), Generations in Jazz (S.A), Rockhampton Big River Jazz Festival (QLD), Thredbo Jazz Festival (NSW), Clarence Jazz Festival (TAS), Noosa Jazz Festival (QLD) and the Devonport Jazz Festival (TAS). Most notably, Elly made a trip to China in 2010 where she performed at the Shanghai World Expo, Australian Pavilion.

In late 2010, Elly launched her debut self-titled album featuring sensational original works and sophisticated arrangements of standard jazz tunes, backed by a Stella cast of seasoned professionals, including: Phil Stack, Tim Firth, Matt McMahon, James Sherlock and John Hoffman. The album won an Australian Jazz Bell Award in 2011 in the category of Best Australian Jazz Vocal Album.

Shortly after winning the Bell award in 2011, Elly was accepted into Stanford Workshop where she studied songwriting with Gretchen Parlato, Rebecca Martin and Becca Stevens and performed in Stanford, California and New York.

John Hoffman: “She is a brilliant young musician who is already singing like someone beyond her years… I feel that Elly has a very sensitive spirit-an artistic sensitivity that not everyone has. It’s rare.”

The album, Elly Hoyt, is a heavily anticipated sample of the smooth and freshly inspiring tones of a new and important vocalist of the Australian jazz scene.

“She sounds as if she belongs in a jazz bar in Manhattan”
– Stephen Matchett (The Australian)
