Ali Barter

Music / Rock, Pop / Melbourne, Australia

Presented by: Sounds Australia, DIY Magazine

Like so many, Ali Barter has experienced sexism and discrimination in the music industry. During the MeToo movement, initiated by Tarana Burke in 2006 and revived by Alyssa Milano in 2017, Barter was one of the first to take a stand with her art. Not only did she write an eloquent op-ed for Australian online magazine Junkee even before the movement began, she also released her debut A Suitable Girl, which is replete with themes of self-determination, feminism, and sorely-needed consciousness raising.

Her hook-driven pop rock is catchy without pandering—and it has an edgy side that reflects Australia as the home of one of the world's most vibrant indie scenes. The scene's DIY spirit is undeniable and even starting to conquer the top of the ARIA Charts, just like Ali Barter herself. She marries the charm of female-fronted 90s rock bands with a new kind of songwriting confidence and clever instrumentation. In Australia, Barter has opened for The War On Drugs as well as the The Jezabels, and now she's blazing a trail to Hamburg.
