20-year-old musician Ethan Barnett, aka Ten Tonnes from Hertford, is a name on the lips of a select band of tastemakers; giving off an air of a box-fresh, whip-smart new talent whose artlessness and unsmoothed edges are a crucial part of his charm. Add to that a breezy, seemingly effortless ability to fashion snap-crackle lyrics and earworm melodies, and it's easy to see why the crowd fall at his feet. In the last year Ethan has recorded songs with Dan Auerbach of The Black Keys, Cherry Ghost's Simon Aldred and Hugo White from The Maccabees. Ethan Mentions genres such as garage-rock and folk-pop describing his style as
pop, but the rough edges are still there.
