Alison Ferrier (Album Launch)
Doors 7:30pm / $12+bf Thru Oztix (HERE)
Singer-songwriter and guitarist Alison Ferrier launches her third long-play album What She Knows, a crafted collection of atmospheric folk, laid-back country and rockin’ blues.
Boosted by Ferrier’s clever electric riffs, What She Knows taps into her early British blues and rock influences, including Led Zeppelin and the Rolling Stones, while her lyrically rich, slow-build country numbers are reminiscent of Lucinda Williams. Ferrier’s voice is unadorned and inviting, singing songs of nostalgia and the human condition, with observations on the universal emotions of everyday life.
Her impressive band appearing with her at the launch features Jeff Lang on guitar, Ben Franz on electric bass, Danny McKenna on drums plus a few other special guest appearances.
Blending folk rock and psychedelia, Manceau's haunting vocals soar across atmospheric electric guitar as her confessional songs tell tales of discovery, redemption and love.
West African desert blues, old time Appalachian stomp and grungy rock thrown in a rusty old camp fire pot and stirred with a banjo.
