  PRODUCT INFORMATION

Since their self-titled first album which became a best-seller upon its release in 2003, Elixir has been joined by Melbourne-based guitarist Stephen Magnusson - himself a major solo recording artist in his own right - while Katie's husband Zac Hurren continues to provide his mellifluous, lyrical saxophone lines that are as distinctive a feature of the Elixir sound as Katie's sublime vocals themselves. In penetrating deep into the heart of Shapcott's words, the trio enlisted the help of string players from the Australian Chamber Orchestra (with whom Katie has worked regularly), and leading jazz players Jonathan Zwartz on bass and Simon Barker on drums.

It's 2am in the week before Easter, and the sound of an ethereal voice accompanied by plucked guitar and soprano saxophone is wafting like some enchanted breeze along the deserted corridors outside an ABC recording studio in Sydney. Through the door and into the candle-lit room, and there we discover the unmistakeable presence of Katie Noonan, lost in the words, accompanied by her trio of 14 years, Elixir, and recording only their second album ever, and their first for ABC Music. The mood of inspiration and rapt attention is obvious, the three friends locked away from the world, creating a mesmerising soundscape inspired by the words of legendary Australian poet Thomas Shapcott. And now, with a national tour supporting Ron Carter and further festival appearances beckoning, Elixir's First Seed Ripening has been completed.
