I Hear the Dust
The Most of You
Nigel Wearne is an Australian singer-songwriter, luthier, poet and gleaner. Equipped with personally handcrafted instruments, he melds finger-style guitar, 'up'-hammer banjo, piano and honest storytelling.
Gleaning diverse influence from Kelly Joe Phelps, Gillian Welch and Townes Van Zandt, he tells stories of forgotten rebels, wandering poets and his love of eggs. His sophomore album, Black Crow garnered wide critical acclaim including a 4 star review in Rolling Stone and a nomination for Best Country Album at the Music Victoria Awards. Nigel’s current album Drawing Circles is a solo record that’s raw, compelling and reflective. 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.
