Nigel Wearne saunters after dark in the music of the night, blending blues, jazz and Americana-noir. Swathed with rambunctious horns, Gretsch guitar, drums and double-bass, they’re a 6-piece with a retro vibe that smacks it straight back to the 60’s. A deep thinker and truth seeker with a penchant for all things peculiar, Wearne sings of human frailty, grace and the cosmos; songwriting that cuts to the bone. 

Listen back to Swinging Doors with Ernie to hear Nigel Wearne perform an exclusive Studio 5 Live set.
