ERNEST AINES – OFF TO CANADA – Come along to the Wesley Anne, Friday 2nd June 2023, 8pm to send off one of Melbourne’s finest singer songwriters, Ernest Aines, as he heads to Canada for some rest and relaxation, and a few gigs.

About Ernest:

Ernest is an award-winning singer-songwriter whose music leans into americana with alt folk vibes.

Based in Melbourne, his soulful voice conveys songs that belie his age with lyrical expressionism, drawing comparisons to the work of Ray Lamontagne, Bon Iver and Jeff Buckley.

This year Ernest played at the prestigious Folk Alliance International Official Showcase, Kansas City, Missouri, and was sponsored by Sounds Australia for the Library of Congress Archive special tribute show.

Armed with only a guitar and a stomp box, he is a master of the stage that audiences follow and continue to return for. Entertaining, quick witted and thriving on audience interaction, Ernests shows cannot be missed.

His highly-anticipated debut album – a project five years in the making – will be released on his return in mid September.

The signs are looking good, with three singles – ‘Rigged Games’, ‘So Far’, and ‘Yellowstone’ – amassing thousands of streams online, and high-rotation on ABC Country.
