Brian Ernst brings ‘conscious foot-tapping’ to Alma’s Only Bar tonight

Special to the DailyBrian Ernst loops and layers the sounds of 20 instruments live at Alma's Only Bar tonight.

“Home is where we park it,” said Brian Ernst, who brings a unique performance featuring 20 different instruments looped and layered live into songs, melodies and instrumentals to Alma’s Only Bar tonight. He and his wife live and tour on their solar-powered school bus, which runs on waste vegetable oil.

Ernst’s music is described as “acoustic/soul/roots with upbeat positive and conscious lyrics.” Some of the instruments include didgeridoos, lap steel/acoustic guitars, djembe drums, and harmonicas.

The artist describes his sound as a “mix between John Butler and Xavier Rudd, looping between Keller Williams and Zach Deputy.”

In addition to the music business, he and his wife run a non-profit organization that does philanthropic work in Kenya, where they once lived. His craziest experience on the road was coming back to the United Sates after spending a year abroad touring through New Zealand, Australia, Southeast Asia and Africa.

Concertgoers can expect to do some “conscious foot-tapping” at tonight’s show. Visit for info.
