Being awarded the Market the Music ‘Emerging Artist Scholarship’ in early 2017 led to an endorsement by designer RACY & LUCKY (Who have designed for Lady Gaga) and then a festival stage debut at the Groundwater Country Music Festival. Ferris also got her first taste of life on the road touring with Australian Idol and The Voice star Hayley Jensen in 2018 playing to crowds across Australia. She has now written with some of the finest songwriters in Australian country music including Golden Guitar winner and APRA Award finalist Kirsty Lee Akers.
Ferris recorded her debut single ‘For A Moment’ with Michael Carpenter at Love Hz Studios in Sydney and it was released in July 2018. The single exceeded all expectations seeing more than 60,000 streams on Spotify within 5 weeks of release. With over 31,000 monthly listeners on the streaming platform (September 2018) there is little doubt that this young starlet is on her way. The accompanying music video was immediately added to the chart on Foxtel’s Country Music Channel (CMC), a rare feat for a debut single.
Before playing the Tamworth Country Music Festival in January 2019, Abbie Ferris will record her follow up single and has been booked to play popular Hunter Valley festival Country At The Camp in November.
