Singer. Songwriter. Performer. Venue owner. Daughter. Friend. Lover. Kick ass woman. Feminist. Business woman. Soft. Tough.
These are just some of the words I could use to describe my good friend Ali. I first met Ali when I visited her venue The Newsagency, at “the old place” in Marrickville.
She’s honest, and thoughtful (a delivery of pumpkin soup when I was sick to prove it) and I was honoured to take the photos for her album - a three hour session in my lounge room where we drank tequila and sang along to Spice Girls and Britney Spears. We’ve shared a commercial space together and still have love and respect for each other. So I would say, that’s a pretty decent friendship indeed.
