Special Event

All in the Family

Explore the highs and lows of growing up in a family where originality was the norm and creativity a currency, in this interactive discussion. Combining talents in song writing, musicianship, stage and screen acting and even stand up comedy, the Stone family is a creative force to be reckoned with.

Jake Stone is best known for his hyperactive antics as front man of Bluejuice, generally regarded as one of the better live acts in Australia today. Their singles Vitriol, Broken Leg and Act Yr Age enjoyed extensive Triple J and commercial radio play, and have helped allow Jake to bum around Glebe for the latter part of his twenties and early thirties. As well as enjoying success as a musician and songwriter he has written for theatre, TV, sketch and short films, acted and performed as a stand up comedian.

Elana Stone is an acclaimed vocalist, songwriter, accordion player and bandleader based in Sydney. She was described by John Bailey from the Sunday Age as ‘One of the most impressive singing voices in the country’. She was named Best Jazz Artist at the Music Oz awards, won the prestigious National Jazz Award competition in Wangaratta and was a semi-finalist in the Montreux Jazz Vocal Competition in Switzerland. Elana sings with her own band The Elana Stone Band and The Rescue Ships with Brian Campeau.

Yael Stone is an actor best known for her role in the television mini-series The Farm opposite Greta Scacchi and Colin Friels as well as recurring roles in All Saints and Spirited. She has a deep love and talent for the stage and is a multiple Helpman award nominee. In 2011 she stared alongside Geoffrey Rush in the highly acclaimed Belvoir production of Diary of a Madman which earned her a nomination, alongside Cate Blanchett, for best supporting actress at the Sydney Theatre Awards. She is currently rehearsing with Director Neil Armfield in New York and will be joining us via satellite link.
