Brian Ernst


Acoustic/Soul/Roots. Brian has 20 instruments on stage and a looping pedal. Using no pre-recorded music, he loops and layers all his instruments into powerful songs, jams, and instrumentals. Some of the instruments he loops are: guitars, lap steel, djembe drums, saxophone, didgeridoo's. Very unique.


Brian is a true artist. He dares to dream, and demands to be different.

He has over 20 instruments on stage, and uses a looping pedal to record and layer them into his original music.

Brian and his wife Katie tour 7-9 months a year. They tour in a solar powered/vegetable oil bus. Where they collect waste vegetable oil from restaurants and bars they play at and use it as fuel to get them to the next stop.

Brian's music has taken him and his wife around the world. Literally.

He has performed in New Zealand, Australia, Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, Laos, Cambodia, and Kenya, Africa.

Although music consumes most of their time, it is only a fraction of what they are doing. Brian and Katie also started and run a non-profit called Journey4YOUth.

In 2010 they took some time off the road and lived in a small mud hut in Kenya. They are supporting a monthly feeding program for 41 orphans in Kenya.

Check out Brian's music/video.
He is one of the artists that's really out there making things happen, trying to change the world. One show at a time.

Set List

If you're reading this, I'm assuming you've never heard my music before, so I won't bother writing out all my songs.

I play mostly original music. I have a few covers and jams I throw in the set here and there.

I've manged to tour pretty extensively all over the world, and never once been told I should play more covers.

and see/listen to the music and how it might fit your particular venue.
