Steeped in blues and country music, Liam Gerner left the Adelaide hills to try his luck in London. The young guitar slinger quickly made a strong impression and earned a crust opening for Paul Weller, Jason Isbell, Drive by Truckers, Paolo Nutini and many more. Liam then headed to the US, joined Texan country rocker Ryan Bingham’s band and experienced frontline American roots music. Returning to Australia in 2014, Liam released his debut album ‘Land Of No Roads’, a startling collection of original songs he composed while touring with Bingham and cut with some of LA’s finest players.
Liam is a guitarist, singer songwriter based in Melbourne, originally from the Flinders Ranges SA. He has toured his story songs and played guitar for artists through Europe, USA and Australia including Vika and Linda Bull, Ryan Bingham, Paul Weller, Jason Isbell, Elton John, Robbie Fulks, and The Eurogliders.
He has released two albums and a book of original songs ‘Ukulele Songs By Kids For Kids’, made music for theatre and the screen.
Liam is a passionate teacher of music so he founded Ukulele Song School Australia to encourage kids to write their songs. He has studied guitar for 10 years with American guitarist Mark Goldenberg (Jackson Browne).
