ROLLER ONE is a collaboration between Fergus McAlpin on lead vocals and guitar, and Adam Afiff on double bass. Their songs span astral folk and alt-country genres, and are influenced by the rich Melbourne music scene and a desire to create work that is both full of tradition and something original. The current band formation is a three-piece with drums.
GEORGIA KNIGHT is known for her resonant vocal range which can change in an instant from ear-whisperingly close to frenzied thrash. Her guitar playing style is similar, with uninhibited chords recognisable in a cover of Big Star’s ‘Kanga Roo’ on an out-of-tune 12 string.
Knight’s roots span trad-folk to grunge, citing Nina Simone, Sandy Denny and instrumental trio Dirty Three as influences.
