Ernest Aines



“Ernest Aines has the kind of voice that turns every head towards the stage and suspends conversation”. Independent Music Review.

A multi award-winning Americana styled folk singer-songwriter from Melbourne, Australia, Ernests soulful voice conveys songs that belie his age with lyrical expressionism that draw comparisons to the work of Ray Lamontagne, Bon Iver and Jeff Buckley. This year Ernest has played many Folk Alliance International Official Showcases at the yearly conference in Kansas City, sponsored by Sounds Australia for the official showcase and the Library of Congress Archive for a 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. He has since released three original singles from his highly-anticipated new album – a project five years in the making. The single ‘Rigged Games’ spoke volumes on behalf of Ernest’s unfiltered, authentic approach to the art-form, with live performance clips depicting compelling devotion to the heartache and desperation conveyed in his lyrics and signature voice. Along with the single ‘So Far’, the new music has amassed thousands of streams online, and Ernest’s second single ‘Yellowstone’ earned high-rotation at ABC Country.
