"Australia's Folk Artist of the Year 2023, nominee, Ernest Aines, is a true contemporary master of folk genre music in all its forms." Michael Smith, Rhythms Magazine, Australia.

A multi award-winning folk singer-songwriter from Melbourne, Australia, Ernest's soulful voice brings songs that belie his age with lyrical expressionism and that draw comparisons to the work of Ray Lamontagne, Bon Iver, Jeff Buckley and on more recent works Nick Drake.

"A GIANT, LYRICALLY AND MUSICALLY". VAN DYKE PARK“HE IS A BRILLIANT VOCALIST AND GUITARIST…” BBC WALES“ERNEST AINES IS A DEXTEROUS GUITARIST AND BRILLIANT VOCALIST" HENRY WAGONS, "Tower of Song" ABC Double J Radio

Considered by industry folk to be Australia's Folk rising star, he is getting the attention he deserves worldwide having been invited to play at the world's largest and prestigious folk conference - Folk Alliance International - Kansas City, Missouri in February 2023 - and represented Sounds Australia at the Library of Congress invite show. There, he wowed audiences, silenced them, and then received standing ovations. After Ernest’s performance at the 2023 FAI official showcase, American Folk legend and Grammy lifetime achievement award recipient, Tom Paxton went backstage, shook Ernest by the shoulders and said, "Where have you been!! Keep doing this, keep doing this!”. His soulful voice, guitar picking, and stomp box have drawn comparisons to the work of Ray LaMontagne, Bon Iver, Jeff Buckley and on more recent releases, Nick Drake.

He is sponsored by Pratley Guitars, alongside stable mates Josh Teskey, Steph Strings, Ash Grunwald, et al.

Ernest’s music has been widely played, with single releases - Yellowstone, So Far and Tail Tale - earning him regular playlisting on Australia’s Public Broadcaster ABC Radio, ABC Double J, and many UK, Canadian and USA radio plays also. He has appeared on Australian Arts and Culture program, “Artworks” where producers stated he was ‘an incredible talent’ Sept. 2023.

"Ernest is genuinely one of a kind...Aines is totally his own deal...Aines ain’t like the rest of the kids in the sandbox y’all.  Ernest has unparalleled instincts when it comes to making music." SBS STUDIO CANADA
