Friday 4th April with special guests Ellie and Glen, 4.30pm Plains FM
From the subtle mystique of modern jazz players Herbie Hancock and Gretchen Parlato, to the funk of Outkast and Beyonce, acoustic duo Ellie and Glen will keep you guessing with their eclectic and unique range of styles. Having only formed recently, they have already developed their own cohesive sound.
Currently based in Christchurch after a career as a professional athlete, Ellie is in her final year of a Musical Arts degree. Having majored in jazz vocals in her first two years she is currently studying the exciting realm of arranging and composition.
The other half of the duo features Glen, a guitarist, arranger and big band composer originally from the United States. Having recently returned to our shores from a visit to New York and Toronto, he has been writing up a storm for some local jazz giants.
