""The Other Side" review from 'Flag Live'"

Ferrarini has been a musician since the age of 7 when she started piano lessons and picked up the guitar at 16. The female vocalist has been a member of Flagstaff’s local music scene for six years, having played in multiple rock and funk jambands over the years such as Livelihood and Tron. She’s been performing solo for two years, sometimes appearing with upright bass player Matt Germansen, who adds grooving rhythms to Ferrarini’s singer- songwriter ballads.

The Other Side was recorded by Ben Lippard of the Skanksters but is entirely Ferrarini’s brainchild—percussion, electric guitar and vocals are all done by her. It’s an album that captures her laidback spirit as well as the general atmosphere of Flagstaff.

The title track, “The Other Side” opens the album, a soothing song about the comfort one can feel about a significant other, even during a period of long distance. “Heaven” exhibits some of Ferrarini’s surprising hard rock influences such as Tool or Led Zeppelin. She reveals her intense, frustrated longing for her version of an afterlife paradise on earth, something we’ve all felt at one point.

“Slumbering Rose” is like waking up in a fairytale, but soon it becomes evident even a dream isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. Ferrarini sings she hopes to stop waiting on fantasies and return to reality. Her guitar switches tone multiple times, showing Ferrarini is a versatile musician.

“Straight In Two” is the album’s highlight with lines like “whiskey river float into my head,” making Mandy seem both sentimental and like that shy, exciting girl at a party you wished you’d talked to.

The Other Side is a great first step. On her own, Ferrarini can be powerful, and her album demonstrates that strength. She’s an independent, spirited woman and Flagstaff is lucky to have her. - Flag Live

Mandy Ferrarini is a guitar-riffing songstress who is breaking boundaries for folk rock as we know it. With her unorthodox percussive guitar playing, and pensively honest lyrics, the sky is the limit for this budding new artist. Formerly the front-woman/lead guitarist of various rock/funk/jambands starting at age 16, Ferrarini has honed her excellent guitar skills and morphed strongly into a one-woman music machine. Her high-energy live shows strike a perfect balance of originals and covers, looped with both acoustic and electric guitar playing.

Ferrarini currently gigs with upright-bass player Matt Germansen on occasion. His rhythms and solid bass grooves further unlock Mandy’s creative instinct as the duo cut loose on finger-lickin’ tunes the crowd can’t help but dance to.

In April of 2010, Ferrarini released her debut solo CD, “The Other Side”, and it is already turning heads all over the country. With 9 originally composed songs, and all parts performed and written solely by Ferrarini, “The Other Side” depicts Ferrarini’s ruthless innovation towards creating music. Ferrarini will simultaneously captivate you, inspire you, and rock you.
