Ernie Hendrickson’s new release “Walking With Angels”, produced by Bo Ramsey, is a testament to the songwriter and performer that Hendrickson has evolved into. The duality of his sophomore release is what has garnered revere of fans and critics alike by balancing the socially conscious and heavy hearted songs such as the single “Not Much Time” – a dark state-of-the-union novella he wrote after watching the movie Into The Wild - amongst the uplifting and hopeful tracks like “Let Me See You Smile”.
Born in Shullsburg, Wisconsin, Hendrickson grew up in Rockford, Illinois where he picked up his first guitar as a 10 year old and quickly found a gift for writing original songs and began developing his own distinctive and colorful guitar style integrating flatpicking, classical, and fingerstyle techniques. From the first basement concerts that he performed for family, Hendrickson has remained devoted to his craft, and has ascended through the ranks to be named among the finest young songwriters of his genre. With his first album Down The Road (2008) he perked the ear of famed guitarist and producer, Bo Ramsey (Lucinda Williams), who took the reigns as producer for Walking With Angels (2010). A landmark year for the young artist, 2010 saw him playing in prestigious venues from New York City to Nashville, where he opened for Don Williams at the legendary Ryman Auditorium.
