Brooklyn based artist, Ernest Brockenberry, uses his music to tell stories of heartbreak, nostalgia, and coming-of-age in New York City's vast and extremely diverse landscape. Through juxtaposing soulful vocal melodies and lovelorn lyrics with percussive rhythms and soaring synths, he aims to create a world where one can not only acknowledge the feelings, but also move through them.
Growing up in New York strongly attributed to his desire to create, and to be connected to people. He began writing music at the age of 9, with the help of his older brother, and developed a fixation for writing to express himself. By the time he finished middle school, he'd filled up 3 composition notebooks with songs, and was known around school for sharing his lyrics with his friends, who he'd let write comments on all of them.
Ernest attended LaGuardia High School, where he studied instrumental music, and further explored his passion for the arts over the course of his 4 years there. He began releasing music in September of 2019, and has no plans to stop any time soon.
