Nigel Wearne is an alt-country/folk singer-songwriter whose music has an intimate and poignant narrative. Equipped with personally handcrafted guitars, his music melds finger-style guitar, slide dobro, country twang and honest storytelling. With a hint of Bob Dylan and influences including Townes Van Zandt, Tom Waits and the spirit of Woody Guthrie, Nigel tells stories of mischievous bank robbers, wandering poets and his love of eggs. Nigel has performed at various music festivals throughout Australia including the Queenscliff Music Festival, Port Fairy Folk Festival and the upcoming Tablelands Folk Festival and Gulgong Folk Festival. With frayed poetic edges and honest grit, Nigel delivers dynamic and inspired performances that will rattle your emotions. Nigel's current album 'Sweetest Delusion' is an entirely acoustic affair - 'the kind of music that really speaks and it would be a shame not to listen' ~ Forte Magazine ~
