Countdown: Women Who Rock, #20 - Ella Hooper


#20 - Ella Hooper

Practically all of Killing Heidi's success in the early 2000s can be attributed to that babe of a front woman, Ella Hooper. With her leading the way, the band was able to top the Australian charts and dominate the 2000 ARIA Awards, winning Best Album and Best Group among others.

During Killing Heidi's criminally short career, Ella proved herself a definitive 'rock chick' with her distinct look, her powerful presence onstage and of course, her voice. She's not up to much these days, but you can catch her on Spicks and Specks every now and then and she's still touring with her brother Jesse in their acoustic duo The Verses.

Key Tracks: 'Mascara' and 'Superman/Supergirl' (Reflector), 'Outside of Me' and 'The Days' (Present), 'I Am' and 'Running Underwater' (Killing Heidi).
