Nerds & Music is a folk-parody duo from Newcastle NSW. Composed of Clark Gormley and Wayne Thompson, the Nerds paired up in late 2007 and are building a following through their comedic performances around Newcastle’s beer gardens, street fairs and Folk Clubs in the area.

Nerds & Music have also performed at the 2016 National Folk Festival, Illawarra Folk Festival, and numerous St Albans Folk Festivals. They once briefly conversed in passing with none other than Fred Smith (a career highlight).

Nerds & Music have released two soon-to-be-critically-acclaimed albums, All At Sea and Courage In The Face Of Absurdity, and are procrastinating on their third album.

The Nerds’ style could best be described as folk-comedy. Performing entirely original songs, Nerds & Music aim to reveal the semiotic truths behind everyday existence by forensically dissecting subjects such as mowing the lawn, mumbling and the colour brown. Clark brings to the duo a reputation for witty poetry and songwriting, a legacy of his long courtship with the written word. Wayne is a more recent resident in the world of songwriting, and brings his ‘less is more’ sensibility to the duo’s musical arrangements. Both like to deliver satire coated in pleasing vocal harmonies.

Clark plays bass and harmonica, while Wayne plays guitar and occasional kazoo.
