Ella Hooper Front And Centre As New Host

SCA has announced that Ella Hooper, is the host of new music podcast, Front & Centre. Ella will also be heard on Triple M 90’s as workday host, playing all her favourite tracks from that decade. The Front & Centre podcast and the Triple M 90’s station are both available via the LiSTNR app. Having spent more than 20 years in the spotlight as frontwoman of Australian band, Killing Heidi, Ella has forged an enviable media career across TV and radio with her authenticity, broad appeal and as a respected pop culture vulture.

Front & Centre, exclusive to the LiSTNR app, is where a spotlight will be shone on the biggest names in music and Ella will share their stories and work through exclusive interviews kicking off with artists including Lorde, Benee, Green Day, The Living End, The Killers and Imagine Dragons.

Ella became a household name as a teenager in the 90’s with the band she formed with her brother Jesse and was at the forefront of one of the most seminal times in music. As workday host of Triple M 90’s, Ella is perfectly placed to showcase the music from the decade that delivered bands like Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Stone Temple Pilots, Soundgarden, The Prodigy, Chemical Brothers, Fatboy Slim, Powderfinger, You Am I, Jebediah, Something for Kate, silverchair, Spiderbait and The Superjesus.

The youngest and first ever female to win the APRA Songwriter of the Year award in 2000, and with five ARIA awards to her name, Ella has the respect and friendship of her peers and is someone other musicians delight in speaking to.

SCA Head of Music, Mickey Maher, said: “As an artist herself Ella will bring a unique insight and storytelling ability to her Front & Centre features and as the front person of one of Australia’s biggest bands of the 90’s no one is better placed to host workdays on Triple M 90’s. We are delighted that someone with Ella’s charm, quick wit, intelligence and musical knowledge has joined our ranks to front not one, but two, music projects for us.”
