1) Elixir is a trio from the UK whose music can best be described as a combination of dark hip-hop beats, obscure samples, and live instrumentation on guitar and bass. The group has released three full-length albums: The Phobos Incident (1997), Music Mathematics Magic (2000), and Don't Be Scared (2003).
2) The Australian band: Poetry cast intimately, acoustically, with jazz as its setting, by three friends, for the sake of it. This rare experience features a combination of the vocal delights of Katie Noonan, the compositional elegance of Katie and Nick Stewart, the soulful tones of Isaac Hurren's Saxophone and the rich poetry of Martin Challis. Elixir, a truly successful crossover of art mediums, without pretence, presented in its most organic form - the spontaneity of the live performance. This is grace in musical colours.
