ARIA Awards 2014 Red Carpet: Ella Hooper

Ella Hooper was tasked with presenting the prestigious award for Best Rock Album at the 2014 ARIA Awards, something she is uniquely qualified to do seeing as she and her former band Killing Heidi won the award for themselves back in 2000.

“It’s been a great year for rock,” Ella told us on the ARIA red carpet. “It’s weird to say it’s had a comeback but I think people have been focussed on electronic music, the softer stuff, on the synthyer stuff and then folk had its time and now rock is really coming back strong.”

Ella would go on to present the award to a deserving Dan Sultan for his album Blackbird. Interestingly, Ella informed us that she is in fact the only female recipient of the Best Rock Album award, something she hopes will change.

“There are so many great chics making amazing rock music in this country. We just need to get them more exposure and make sure they can get to the top.”
