HIGH ACE - Alison Ferrier and Jeff Lang

Starts: Saturday, 06 August 2022, 12:00 am
Ends: Saturday, 06 August 2022, 12:00 am
Join them at The Imperial Hotel Eumundi for the HIGH ACE Album Launch – the new musical project of Alison Ferrier and Jeff Lang. High Ace's brand new release 'Snowcap Menace' will be debuted at a limited series of very special shows. Joining them on stage for the launch is Amy Valent Curlis on marimba and percussion. This is an astonishing album of contemporary musical storytelling empowered by a foundation of guitar-led folk and stringed global ethno-influences. It explores the collective musical powers of Alison and Jeff, yet still enables their individual flairs to flourish. 2020 and 2021 left many Melbourne musicians playing alone in the burrow of the longest lockdown in the world, and Alison and Jeff soon realised they had another option. “Wanna make a record?,” one of them stammered, and High Ace was born. As a wife and husband team, High Ace is imbibed with a rare synergy and they quickly discovered a unique and magical song-writing method: deciphering strange incantations played in reverse, and what the unusual, twisting cadences of those vocalisations were telling them. This radical departure in the song-writing process was prompted when their kids used the ‘reverse’ function on a family video of ‘Happy Birthday’... suddenly one of the most recognisable melodies in the world became strange and otherworldly.
