Melbourne lad, Earnest, is an award-winning singer/songwriter who treads the path of folk. His music has been heard at alters and at wineries, in forests and cathedrals, in shearing sheds and paddocks, and on stages big and small.
Music has taken Earnest around the world, busking, gigging and teaching music in Japan, Germany, Canada and Brazil. He loves a wedding (who doesn’t) and recently flew to Kuala Lumpur where he was guest artist for a huge nuptial celebration.
With an affinity for storytelling, Earnest weaves a vivid tapestry of quirky and imaginative lyricism. Each rendition is delivered with love, leaving listeners with a fresh take on familiar lyrics, or a feeling that the song was a message to them, at that time in their life.
Critics have praised Earnest for his sweet and dreamy voice that echoes the likes of Bon Iver and Gotye. He makes interesting and beautiful melodic choices, held steadily by sophisticated and elegant fingerstyle guitar.
