Ian Ferrier is one of the core poet/performers in the North American performance literature scene. Rooted in poetry, his live performances are a haunting blend: some pieces are performed with acoustic guitar, others with choir; some are whispered and others wail to the trancelike music of a band called Pharmakon. He appears across Canada, in New York and in Europe, and his signature is the quiet voice at the centre of every poem.
Planète Rebelle Press released his first CD & poetry book-Exploding Head Man-to national acclaim. The National Post called it "a musical-score lament for a movie that never was; a movie starring a new breed of fearless poet/magicians doing their best version of Kerouac's rediscovered yelp: EE-Yah!"
This past fall his new CD-What is this Place-was released by Vancouver's Bongobeat Records. HOUR Magazine called the release "spoken word at its finest."
Mr. Ferrier also co-founded the poetry/music label Wired on Words-which won public radio's Standard Broadcasting Award in its first year. His work can be heard regularly on CBC and other public radio stations.
