ALBUM REVIEW: Alison Ferrier ~ Be Here Now

ptw scorebw7alison_ferrier_be_here_now_0615Ferrier’s sophomore album finds her with a full band, recording the instrumental tracks live to tape in two days. As a result there’s an immediacy and presence to her emotionally rich songs of relationships – good and bad. Ferrier’s voice is an easy fit with her folk and country-styled compositions, able to swing sweet and melodic on the title track, loosen up on the sultry raggedness of ‘Damned If I Do’ and hit a rich vein of country soul on ‘Old Adelaide’. Be Here Now is a polished album with suitably rough edges that provides plenty to discover on repeat listens.
