The Composers’ Voice: Celebrating Australian Women Composers (ALBUM LAUNCH)

Buy tickets: https://foundry616.com.au/whats-on-tickets/

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 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

Band Features:

Elly Hoyt – Vocals

Steve Barry - Piano

Hannah James – Bass

Dave Goodman – Drums

+ Special guest Eamon Dilworth
