McGoon Productions Presents: Brian Ernst at Alma's Only Bar.
Brian & Katie Ernst are full time touring artists & philanthropists. They tour in full size school bus that has been converted into an RV that runs on solar panels and fueled by waste vegetable oil. Music/art has taken them around the world. Literally.
Brian has over 20 instruments on stage and a looping pedal. Using no pre-recorded music he loops and layers his instruments into various songs, melodies, and instrumentals best described as acoustic/soul/roots.
Brian is an original artist. He performs between 150-200 shows per year, averaging between 35,000 to 40,000 driving miles a year.
With humble beginnings, Brian's full time music career started back in 2007 as a street performer. Brian traveled all over the country playing music on the streets of folk festivals, downtown parking lots, or Chicago subways. He discovered the looping pedal and graduated from sidewalks to venues, clubs, and festivals.
Prior to his 2009 debut studio album 'Journey4YOUth' Brian sold over 7,000 bootleg cd's mostly out of his guitar case. Brian's album has sold over 1,000 units a year since it's release.
