“Influenced by some of the legendary names of pop and soul, such as the Beatles, Elton John, Otis Redding, and Stevie Wonder, Californian Ernie Halter first began to make waves for himself with the release of his 2005 collection, Lo-Fidelity. The singer and songwriter got his start playing a small — mostly covers — coffeehouse gig in 1992, and was able to maintain the difficult position of being a working musician (and closet songwriter) by simply paying his dues, working on songs in his spare time, and playing in coffeehouses and smaller gigs to keep active on the scene and to sharpen his skills. Eventually, word of mouth and the Internet community on websites such as MySpace and YouTube worked in Halter’s favor, and by 2007 — and his next release, Congress Hotel (on Rock Ridge Music) — he had built up quite a buzz, and the staunchly indie Halter could be seen touring throughout much of the United States.” (Chris True All Music Guide)
Halter has released 7 albums, toured 50 states, and seen his popularity swell to more than 510,000 Twitter followers, 12,000 YouTube subscribers, and nearly 10,000 Facebook ‘Likes’.
In 2011 Justin Bieber covered Ernie Halter’s “Come Home To Me” making international headlines and exposing Halter’s music to a wide new audience.
Ernie Halter has shared the studio and stage with: Jason Mraz, Lady Antebellum, Neil Young, Colbie Caillat, Sara Barielles, Justin Bieber, Katy Perry, Eric Hutchinson, Tony Lucca, Allen Stone, Drake Bell, Sister Hazel, and more.
Halter’s songs have been heard on SiriusXM Coffeehouse, Good Morning America, A Thousand Words (Film), Keeping Up With The Kardashians, Jimmy Kimmel Live, General Hospital, Young & The Restless, Cougar Town, Army Wives, The Real World, Disney’s Sonny With A Chance and Delta Airlines.
Ernie Halter is a regular favorite at venues nationwide such as The Hotel Cafe (Los Angeles), Rockwood Music Hall (New York City), SPACE (Chicago), 3rd & Lindsley (Nashville), Eddie’s Attic (Atlanta), The Prophet Bar (Dallas), The Walnut Room (Denver), Jammin’ Java (DC), and more.
In October 2012 Ernie launched The 52 Songs Club via crowdfunding website Kickstarter.com and raised $35,000 to write, record, and deliver a song per week to each of the 500+ project backers.
