Vorn Doolette


One Night Jam is a folk trio with a contemporary edge. While they always provide an over the top mind blowing energetic show full of youthful energies and sassy humour they are prone to stunning an audience into absolute silence with songs of heartbreak and sorrow. One Night Jam is a new Canberra-based trio playing original songs with romantic, tragic and comedic lyrics. Completely acoustic, One Night Jam provides gentle love songs to sooth your soul or funky upbeat laugh out loud entertainment. Their day-time identities are Vorn Doolette (23) , Sam King (19) and Emma Kelly (22). One Night Jam was formed in 2003 to arrange, record and perform songs written by Vorn. They have been a huge hit over the last two years in the festival scene, playing the Blue Mountains Folk Festival and The National Folk Festival where Vorn was awarded "the Lis Johnston Award for Vocal Excellence". The songs are arranged around Vorn's strong, honest lyrics that paint vivid pictures and tell compelling stories; often very personal and revealing. Emma violin and Sam's vocal harmonies provide additional colour and texture to the pictures and emotion to the stories. Sam's guitar gives the arrangements their extra power and rich rhythmic dynamics.Above all, the players have a lot of fun on stage, and draw audiences into the fun with continuous crazy banter, all delivered with comic timing.
