Meet Elle Holiday

Elle is beyond excited to bring the joyous, harmonically rich, colour-explosion that BOPS to audiences.

She is Top of the Bops resident ‘soprano’ (aka a mezzo that can be very loud up high) who’s vocal styling is a mix of soul, jazz and contemporary.

She co-produces Top of the Bops alongside the extraordinary @jessica_bigg, is our costume and set designer and honestly, all she wants this Fringe is for you to have the BEST time at the BOPS show enjoying the incredible talent of some of Adelaide’s most impressive leading women vocalists.

Outside of performing, Elle is a voice-specialising Speech Pathologist, singing teacher, choral conductor. She is the founder and director of @VocaLabAU. VocaLab specialises in all things voice: singing and speaking voice rehabilitation, singing teacher training, transgender voice training, vocal health education, practical application of singing technique and solution-based singing lessons for beginner, intermediate and professional singers. Elle holds a Bachelor of Speech Pathology from Flinders University and a Diploma in Jazz Voice from the Elder Conservatorium of Music. This combination of extensive singing training, teaching and performance experience, paired with her clinical knowledge and practice, allows Elle to offer a specialty, niche package of voice services that have been engaged by reputable Australian and international performers in theatre, music, radio and public speaking.

Meet Jessica Bigg

Jessica Bigg is the creative brains and origin story behind this show. After a couple years away from the Fringe stage, her desire to return grew too much and Top of The Bops was finally born in 2022!

A true boss of the local music scene, juggling busy gig life, teaching work and her family, she is a machine when it comes to the hustle! She loves supporting the local music scene, working alongside many artists and in other musical projects.

Her pipes are cover serious range, with loads of colour & power – just wait til you hear her unleash! You’ll be blown away by her sound and incredible vocal arrangements.

Outside of her music, Jess prioritises her family, including her young fire-cracker daughter, Macy, who’s latest obsession is The Greatest Showman soundtrack (and can’t stop singing “A million dreams”).

Meet Eliza Dickson

Eliza is our resident alto and fiery 🔥 nutcracker of the show. She’s a “strong mover” and will get down with any dance party in town. Give her the chance to bust a dance floor bop and she’s straight to the microphone!

“I’m so excited to bring this show back for 2024 in an even bigger and better way! The arrangements are incredible and I’m so looking forward to piecing it together with the girls!”

Eliza is now chasing her own original music career, while classroom music teaching, choir directing, voice teaching, and fronting the Australian Army Band Adelaide as their primary vocalist. Keep an eye out after the fringe season for her debut album release!

Meet Rachel Coppen

Rachel lights up the stage with her beaming smile, is a passionate vocal educator & highly versatile vocalist with over a decade of performing experience under her belt.

Rachel is a Fringe veteran, having performed in a variety of Fringe shows since 2019 and she is stoked to be back on the Fringe stage performing with the Top of the Bops crew and lending her vocals to some incredible arrangements alongside such a talented line-up of Adelaide vocalists.

When she’s not singing to pub patrons or loved-up couples, you can find Rachel soaking up the local music scene, on the couch rewatching Fleabag for the billionth time, or with her housemates enjoying (and winning) family games nights.
