Ernest Aines And Camille Trail

Fresh off her official showcase at Ireland’s ‘Your Roots Are Showing’ conference, Camille Trail emerges as one of Australia’s most esteemed indie-folk talents. 
From Queensland’s Sunshine Coast but rooted in Baralaba's cattle ranch culture, her music blends country, folk, blues, and gospel. With acclaimed releases like 'Gotta Get To Know You' and 'twenties', produced by Garrett Kato, she's earned radio acclaim and invitations to support artists like Ash Grunwald and Boy & Bear. 

Critics hail her debut album 'River of Sins', with The Australian declaring her "one of the nation’s most striking new voices". Camille, recognised as a perceptive wordsmith, continues to captivate audiences globally, showcasing her talent at prestigious events like Folk Alliance International, Kansas City, Missouri and Your Roots Are Showing Folk Conference, Ireland, while earning nominations for Queensland Music and Golden Guitar Awards.

"River of Sins announces the 22-year-old Central Queensland singer-songwriter as one of the nation’s most striking new voices”
Andrew McMillen, The Australian 

"It’s pretty obvious that the 22-year-old Trail is something special – very special and of course, at the end of the day it’s all about the songs – and Trail is a perceptive wordsmith."
Stuart Coupe, Paul Kelly’s biographer

Ernest Aines, a Melbourne-based Australian Folk Artist of the Year 2023 nominee, garnered critical acclaim for his album "Spiral Bound," lauded by Rhythms Magazine as "universal, borderless, and timeless." Critics hailed its depth, labeling it "breathtaking" and affirming Aines as a "contemporary master of the folk music form." Aines' January and February UK and Ireland tour featured sold-out venues and standout performances, setting the stage for his return to play the prestigious Cambridge Folk Festival this July.

Ernest’s journey began with busking on the streets of Melbourne. It progressed to him playing celebrated Festivals like The Port Fairy Folk Festival, Woodford Folk Festival, The Blue Mountains Folk Festival, Nannup Music Festival and more.  His indie-folk styling and unique vocal delicacy have been compared to James Taylor, Jeff Buckley, Ray Lamontagne, Bon Iver, and on more recent releases Nick Drake.
 “Ernest Aines has the kind of voice that turns every head towards the stage and suspends conversation”.
Independent Music Review.

“Ernest Aines is a dexterous guitarist and brilliant vocalist”
