Multi-Platinum selling and five time ARIA Award winning singer and songwriter Katie Noonan returns with her jazz trio Elixir featuring Zac Hurren, for a magical evening of music and poetry on the ‘Gratitude And Grief’ National Tour. Folk Jazz trio Elixir is approaching 20 years in the business. Fronted by Noonan with Jazz saxophonist Zac Hurren, the trio has enjoyed enormous success along the way including an ARIA Award for Best Jazz Album in 2011, 13 weeks at #1 on the ARIA Jazz Chart, and numerous high profile festival appearances.
Katie Noonan’s technical mastery and pure voice makes her one of Australia’s most versatile and beloved vocalists. The 5 x ARIA Award winning and 7 x platinum selling songstress first received widespread praise as the angel-voiced songstress of indie-pop band George and has since taken audiences on sublime excursions through Jazz, Pop and Classical music. Her recent releases include collaborating with guitarist Karin Schaupp for their 2017 ARIA Winning album 'Songs of the Latin Skies' and the world famous Brodsky Quartet for the acclaimed 2016 album ‘With Love and Fury'. She has also worked with the country’s top orchestra’s including her fruitful collaborations with Richard Tognetti and the Australian Chamber Orchestra and recently with the Sydney Symphony Orchestra for the premiere performance of ‘Gratitude and Grief’.
Zac Hurren is a truly unique saxophonist, composer and improviser who has shared the stage with Aussie greats such as Dale Barlow, Scott Tinkler, David Ades, Paul Grabowsky and Simon Barker. In 2009 Zac won the National Jazz Award, he received an ARIA Award in 2011 with Elixir and was a Freedman Fellowship finalist in 2012.
