Ernie began playing the guitar as a teenager, later learning piano and mandolin. He has been impressing audiences with his interpretations of popular songs for decades. Love songs, rock classics, old standards and gospel tunes, along with his own music, flow effortlessly from his repertoire.
While playing in churches, coffee shops and restaurants many people began requesting CDs of his music. It was to satisfy those fans and admirers that Edge of the World was created. A mix of acoustic rock, blues, folksy ballads and traditional gospel tunes designed to tug the heart, stimulate the mind and stir the spirit.
Ernie has played all over central Florida as well as leading worship in a wide range of denominational environments, from Catholic to Pentecostal.
One fellow musician aptly observed, “When the screaming guitars and pounding drums get quiet, you can hear Ernie strumming away on his acoustic guitar, singing his mellow songs.”
“Ernie is not only a great player and singer, he is a wonderful entertainer. He interprets his music for those who listen and best of all he delivers everything with a heart full of love for the music he plays and for the people who listen to it. “
