Ferrier is a prolific songwriter and talented guitarist, performing regularly in Melbourne with some of the town’s best musicians. In the last few years, she’s played at Port Fairy and Woodford Folk Festivals and Wangaratta Festival of Jazz and Blues, had a successful solo tour along the east coast of Australia, released third studio album What She Knows and made Bluebirds, an album with supergroup collaboration Suzannah Espie, Kerri Simpson and Barb Waters.
Her debut album, Sugar Baby, was released in 2012, and received top reviews. She followed that up with another long player Be Here Now in 2015. Here’s what the critics said:
“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
She originally hails from Twickenham, on the outskirts of London. In her early twenties, she moved to Australia and met singer-songwriter-guitarist Jeff Lang, who is now her husband. Together, they travelled around Australia, the UK and North America, with Ferrier learning to become Jeff's sound engineer by throwing herself in at the deep end. When they moved to Melbourne, Ferrier founded the Wayward Fancies and also played fiddle with Sean McMahon in the Western Union.
