She won Best Jazz Artist at the 2004 Musicoz awards. She was winner of the national Jazz Awards at the 2005 Wangaratta Jazz Festival and was a semi finalist at the Montreux Jazz Festival Vocal Competition in 2005.
She is Elana Stone. And when shes not acquiring awards and kudos, she sings, plays and writes jazz. (I get the feeling she even breathes jazz.) A singer, pianist and songwriter, Elana has put together a band comprising some of the finest musos in the land.
The Elana Stone Band will perform at the Jazz N Blues night at the Rous Hotel in Lismore next Tuesday, October 3. This is a very special evening for the weekly Jazz N Blues gig. Elana Stone and her band are fanning big jazz fires in the big smoke.
With guitarist Aaron Flower, double bassist Zoe Hauptmann (dont see many women playing the big four stringer) and drummer Evan Mannell, the Elana Stone Band is young, talented and ready to show Lismore a good jazztime.
Entry is $10/7 and the music starts at 8.30pm.
