Award winning singer, Elly Hoyt, grew up in the forests of Tasmania. She left her home at eighteen to study music and has been travelling and performing around the world for the last ten years.
While studying jazz in Boston USA recently, Elly discovered a poem by holocaust survivor Rose Ausländer that was dedicated to Ausländer’s mother called My Nightingale. Deeply moved, and feeling the pull of her homeland, Elly was driven to start a band in honour of her own mother, her early music influences, and honouring her true self.
After returning to Brisbane in 2016, Elly joined forces with Beck Flatt, Helen Svoboda and Rebecca Karlen. Within minutes of playing together, they all knew that this was something special.
Thus My Nightingale was born.
Bringing together diverse backgrounds from Australia, Finland, Sweden and America, expect soul-soothing tunes with luscious vocal harmonies, layers of beautiful strings, and groovy folk rhythms.
This group is destined for big things. Don’t miss out on this exciting journey!
