London-born, Melbourne-based musician Alison Ferrier is a prolific songwriter, talented guitarist and violinist and an active player in Melbourne’s vibrant music scene. Ferrier’s voice can drift from sweet to solemn and is unadorned and inviting, singing songs of nostalgia and the human condition, with observations on the universal emotions of everyday life.


Ferrier performs regularly with some of the Australia’s best musicians and has captivated audiences at Port Fairy and Woodford Folk Festivals as well as numerous venues along the east coast.


Her third studio album 'What She Knows' is an evocative and emotive slice of folk, country, blues and rock 'n' roll and has established Ferrier as a force to be reckoned with.

Ferrier's latest project is experimental band High Ace with husband Jeff Lang. As a wife and husband team, the project is imbibed with a rare synergy and unique, almost magical song-writing method: deciphering strange incantations played in reverse. They imparted strange tales of rattling drums and poisoned hemlocks.

Opelousas is Ferrier's trio with the legendary Kerri Simpson and Anthony Shortte. Inspired by the Louisiana town of the same name, Opelousas serves up a spicy slice of pulsating swamp blues with rhythms that seep right into your bloodstream.

Press Quotes

“Country punk, rock and blues meets folkish melancholy and gingham country with a dash of double denim '70s sweetness. The songwriting is better than merely solid, but what sealed the deal for me was just how inviting Ferrier's voice is.”

- Sydney Morning Herald


“Vocals throughout are effortlessly refined, with conviction and vulnerability in equal measure.

- ” Rhythms Magazine
