Ella Hooper – Killing Heidi
After a 4 year hiatus, Ella Hooper has shared her brand new single OLD NEWS.
Old News has been hailed as a new beginning for Ella, who was still a teenager when she burst onto the Australian music scene fronting Killing Heidi. Ella left High School halfway through Year 11 to concentrate on Killing Heidi. She states that the first time she heard her voice on the radio was on the school bus.
“For a long time, I felt awkward about my success, that I had to apologise for it,” Ella reveals. “Becoming a bit of an overnight success with Killing Heidi really presented its challenges. I’ve had a complicated relationship with my career, but I don’t feel hamstrung by that anymore.”
“I guess Old News is a message to myself,” she adds. “It’s okay to be ambitious and still have dreams.”
The tour will commence in WA on October 20, before moving on to Victoria, SA and QLD, and winding up in Sydney with Mary’s Underground on November 25 and Centro, Wollongong on November 26. It also includes what will no doubt be a massive night for Cup Eve at Northcote Social Club in Melbourne (Monday October 31). Tickets for all shows on sale now – head to www.ellahoopermusic.com
