Nigel Wearne is a folk/country singer-songwriter whose music has an intimate and poignant narrative. Equipped with personally handcrafted guitars, his music melds fingerstyle guitar, clawhammer banjo, folk and honest storytelling. Gleaning diverse influence from Kelly Joe Phelps, Townes Van Zandt and Sun Kil Moon, he tells stories of forgotten rebels, wandering poets and his love of eggs. Nigel has performed at various music festivals throughout Australia, including the Queenscliff Music Festival, Cygnet Folk Festival and Yackandandah Folk Festival. Wearne’s current album 'Drawing Circles' is a solo record that’s raw, compelling and reflective. With songs born of shadows and lucid reveries, the 14-song double album explores the dark corners of creativity and the irregular swells of life. A storyteller at heart, he paints lyrical pictures with “the narrative-fuelled prose of Paul Kelly” – Beat Magazine. “One of Australia’s emerging songwriters” – Tone Deaf. “Warmth flecked with grit… beauty awaits” 4 Stars – Rolling Stone Australia.
