Melbourne based Ernest Aines is a multi-award-winning contemporary folk singer-songwriter. His songs range from lore type storytelling and personal discovery to wistful ramblings. It may be due to the fact that he delivers them with an inspired and truthful earnestness, and a search beyond the formulaic that results in comparisons to musicians such as Ray Lamontagne, Bon Iver and Jeff Buckley. After the long lockdowns, Ernest emerged with twelve finely crafted and beautiful songs he recorded himself for his debut album. Combined with his deft fingerpicking style and the eloquent wordplay of his lyrics, Ernest’s performances will entrance and delight you.
