ernest kohl, recording artist and multi-talented performer, has become a celebrated force within the music industry with an impressive body of international hits. with 16 consecutive "top ten" smash singles, five of which soared to the number one position in dance music authority (dma), billboard, street sound and dance music report's (dmr) top fifty charts, and dance radio charts, it's no wonder kohl received dma's "best male vocalist" award in 1990. in 1991, 1992, 1993, 1994, 1995 and 1996 he received nominations for "song of the year," "best producer/arranger" and "best live performer" as well as "best male vocalist." in just a few short years, ernest has also established himself as an accomplished producer, musical arranger, writer, choreographer and chairman of his own independent production company.
his crowd-thrilling performances have made his concerts a favorite in major venues throughout the world. ernest's boundless energy has earned him the reputation as being one of the hardest working and most exciting live performers in the recording industry. new york city music critic zecca recently praised kohl as "...showing us all why he won the "best male vocalist" award...his extraordinary voice, looks, and performance coupled with complex choreography left the others in the "dust."
ernest has been singing, dancing and acting professionally since childhood. his formal training began at the american musical and dramatic academy in new york city. a protégé of famed vocal teacher katie agresta, ernest credits her for helping him develop his critically acclaimed vocal talents. he has studied dance with the american ballet theater and the respected choreographers chuck kelly and drew packolyk. kohl's interest in contemporary dance then led him to a successful collaboration with choreographer a.c. ciulla (choreographer of broadway's dance music sensation "footloose" and a former member of the grammy-nominated c&c music factory). this creative alliance has produced a new, even more energetic dimension to kohl's live "the explosive tour, the tornado tour" and his last production "the importance tour/tour de importance", and his newest production "the make you weak tour" as well as his video performances. ernest now even delves deeper into his passion for contemporary dance, teaming with some of new york city's hottest new choreographers, launching into ernest's newest concert and media endeavor "ernest kohl live."

ernest has managed to bridge the gap between touring dates and his own production chores. recently, his production, arranging and writing talents have contributed to the worldwide successes of such artists as: phoebe snow, cappella, jeanie tracy, linda imperial, vicki shepard, and most recently, ms. pepper mashay.
