Listen to track sample

Noel Balfour

One Way Ticket

from the One Way Ticket album.

NOEL BALFOUR has been involved in country music for most of his life and, with his late wife, LORNA BARRY, of the BARRY SISTERS, he has co-written many songs for other artists such as TIM McNAMARA and JIMMY LITTLE. The BARRY SISTERS, consisting of LORNA BARRY and DOROTHY DAVIDSON, were pioneers of country music radio and TV in Australia.

Noel played guitar on their early records on the Rodeo Label. They were inducted into the Hands of Fame at Tamworth in 1988 and were well loved in the industry.

He has now released an album, HANG ON TO A GOOD THING, and all of the songs were cowritten by Lorna and Noel but, prior to now, they have never been released .

ONE WAY TICKET, the first single released off the album, has, says Noel, “been a sentimental journey for me”.
