After spending the past European summer in Madrid, Bernard’s well-earned break was interrupted by his oldest partner-in-crime: his acoustic guitar. Now, with a refreshed take on his distinctive and relentless songwriting, he brings home a new album along with a summer tour. Performing at the stunning surrounds of Leeuwin Estate in Margaret River, and the Melbourne and Taronga Zoo Twilight Series, an intimate night at the Newtown Social, and a hometown show at friend and Powderfinger’s bassist John Collins’ new venue The Triffid.

Bernard and his band will bring to life his acclaimed ‘Tea & Sympathy’ and ‘Departures’ albums, featuring hit singles “Wish You Well”, “Songbird”, “Watch Over Me” and “Battleships” as well as debuting to Australian audiences as yet unheard new material.

Sydney’s Little May will join Bernard to open all shows, in a music scene awash with thumping bass and auto-tuned rap, their arrival was a bolt from the blue  – their songs emotionally charged, intimate and lyrical and their music an entirely original take on folk with blues and indie influences that saw music writers invent the term ‘ghost folk’.
