Eric Myers: … an impressive local duo featuring the highly talented vocalist Elly Hoyt and the beautiful guitarist Jamie Clark. – The Australian

James Morrison: “From the moment I first heard Elly sing, I knew she had that classic, indefinable thing that makes one a jazz singer. It's not just a sound, or a choice of notes but a way of approaching a song that lets the listener know - this is the real thing".

Jamie Clark Bio: Jamie has appeared at various festivals including The Wangaratta Festival of Jazz, The Woodford Folk Festival, The Brisbane Festival, The Manly Jazz Festival (Sydney), CMAA Bluegrass Flatpicking Champion in 2011 and described as “a cracking guitarist” by Rolling Stone Magazine.
