Killing Heidi soon grew from emerging teenage power pop, to the international stage through their breakthrough debut album ‘Reflector’ released in March 2000. Singles ‘Mascara’ and ‘Weir’ made Reflector a blow-out success and the album makes up an integral part of Aussie indie music story.

Killing Heidi reignited the flame at the 20th anniversary of Queenscliff Music Festival in November 2016, fitting as it also marked 20 years since Ella and Jesse Hooper first started performing as ‘Killing Heidi. They then went on to wow crowds at the Zoo Twilight performances in February 2017 at Taronga and Melbourne Zoos. 

“I’m really excited to revisit the Killing Heidi days, they were a big part of my youth and I can’t wait to perform these songs live for people who loved them too. We’ll play all our biggest hits from our first singles Weir and Mascara through to our later releases 'I Am' and 'Calm Down' ”
