This is an astonishing album of contemporary musical storytelling empowered by a foundation of guitar-led folk and stringed global ethno-influences, exploring the collective musical powers of Alison and Jeff, yet still offering 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 Ali and Jeff’s kids used the ‘reverse’ function on a family video rendition of ‘Happy Birthday’... suddenly one of the most recognisable melodies in the world became strange and otherworldly.
World Music Central (WOMADelaide review) ‘Wife and husband duo Alison Ferrier and Jeff Lang delivered a considered set of twisted folk under the moniker High Ace… His talent as one of Australia’s finest guitarist-songwriters and hers on fiddle, vocals and guitar, made for a unique sonic outing. Their vocal harmonies and outside-the-square melodies create a certain magic’
Rhythms Magazine (WOMADelaide Review) ‘Were awards handed out for innovation and experimentation … High Ace (the husband wife duo of Jeff Lang & Alison Ferrier) would also be in line for a gong’
