The Big Moon’s Fern Ford shares debut solo track ‘Match’

Listen to her ambient new song now.

Best known as the drummer of The Big Moon, today Fern Ford is unveiling her debut solo track ‘Match’.

“I first started writing 8 years ago, armed with just a Casiotone 202 and a xylophone,” Fern says. “Being the drummer in a band, I always felt like maybe I should stay in my lane and leave the song writing to the pros. It felt a bit like imposter syndrome, helped by the fact that the music I was making didn’t sound like the music I was hearing around me, which made me think that maybe I was doing it wrong. I soon realised that was silly. Over the years the self-doubt subsided and with a bit of practise, I finally found my voice. ‘Match’ is about trusting your intuition. It’s about realising your strength and finding comfort in the unknown.”
