northern Nebraska in January. 5 musicians, no heat, a small PA, big ideas. 3 days later, Bernardus was formed. An idea that had been in the mind of lead singer and songwriter Ben Kramer has finally become a reality.

Bernardus’ ambient folk rock sound, uniquely paired with lead singer Ben Kramer’s singer/songwriter style of lyrics, brings a tone that is best described as alternative americana through a modern pop lens.

Bernardus will be on an acoustic duo tour starting in the end of September 2016 and will be playing shows all throughout the South, Midwest and Southeast through November 2016. To find a show in your area, visit the “shows” section on the bernardus music website.
