Alesa Lajana is an award winning Australian singer-songwriter, storyteller, guitarist and banjoist.
For the last eight years she has travelled the dusty highways of Australia, collecting stories from post European contact history, and setting them to music.
Her new album Frontier Lullaby (out 24 June 2016) is the collection of songs and stories from this wild and epic adventure, leading listeners on a heartfelt journey through shadowy chapters of Australian history.
The album features collaborations with multi Grammy award winner Bela Fleck, Aria winners Amy Saunders and Julian Curwin, Australian songwriting icon and Order of Australia recipient Shane Howard, and iconic session players Kirk Lorange and Luke Moller.
The second single to be released, following on from the title track Frontier Lullaby released earlier in 2016, is My Little Darlin.
The song follows a tale across Dieri Country, north-eastern South Australia. Alesa had been researching the Lutheran Killalpaninna Mission when she sat for a portrait by the painter Nic Plowman.
