Brian Ernst brings ‘conscious foot-tapping’ to Alma’s Only Bar tonight
Ryan Summerlin August 23, 2012
“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 www.almasonlybar.com for info.
