Bio

The easy way attracts a lot of people. Melbourne-based singer/songwriter Ali Barter is not one of them. In these on demand times of overhyped pop idols and dubiously talented internet sensations, Ali possess the natural chops to have garnered attention the old fashioned way – through unabashed raw talent, passionate determination and steadfast hard work. Ali’s clear, ringing tone has a habit of elevating every note she sings, evoking comparisons to a long list of incomparable artists: Patsy Cline, Cat Power, Aimee Mann, Laura Marling and Feist. Her music covers a gamut of styles: electronic, folk and indie, with traces of blues and dreamy pop – consistently showcasing her singular soprano voice. In 2012, her expansively titled debut EP Trip caught the attention of national radio station Triple J, earning Ali significant airplay, and a hometown slot in the 2013 Laneway Festival. She continues writing and co-writing songs for a long play she hopes to release in 2013, and raising her profile on the live circuit, one gig at a time.

Some serious camp fire vibes here. The chorus is powerful good. I feel like protesting something.

There's a great blend of textures to this; electronic droplets, shuffling drums and a swelling pop chorus. Great work.
