TEN TONNES – aka Ethan Barnett – is a 22-year-old musician from Hertford who possesses a breezy, seemingly effortless ability to fashion snap-crackle lyrics and earworm melodies. It’s a trait that’s very much in evidence throughout his self-titled debut album which will be released on May 3rd . It was recorded with producers Hugo White (previously of The Maccabees) and Dan Grech (Wolf Alice, The Killers, Liam Gallagher).
2018 saw TEN TONNES complete a busy year of touring which he concluded by hitting the UK and Europe as guest to George Ezra. He also played packed arenas with Stereophonics, instigated chaotic scenes with Rat Boy and won over crowds when touring with Tom Grennan. After completing a sold-out headline tour at the beginning of the year, he’ll be hitting the road again in May.
TEN TONNES first gained attention in 2016 with an independently released three-track debut EP, before releasing ‘Born To Lose’ EP and a succession of singles under a deal with Warner Bros. Records.
