Elixir was founded in 1997 by Katie Noonan, Nick Stewart and River Petein. In 1999 saxophonist Zac Hurren (Katie’s partner of 24 years) joined the band, in 2005 guitarist Stephen Magnusson joined the band and in 2019 they introduced guitarist Benjamin Hauptmann to their trio.
Their initial self-titled album Elixir (2003) gained #1 in the ARIA Jazz chart and #2 ARIA Australian Artist chart. Their 2nd album First Seed Ripening (2011) was #1 ARIA Jazz chart for 9 weeks and won the ARIA Best Jazz album of the year while their 3rd album Gratitude and Grief (2018) was nominated for the 2018 ARIA best Jazz album.
Expect exquisite vocals and arguably the world’s most beautiful soprano sax sound from some of Australia’s most prolific and accomplished artists.
