With Dan Hubbard
Long before he picked up his guitar and took the ride down Highway 90 from Rockford to Chicago, Ernie Hendrickson has been crafting songs straight from the heart of Middle America. With a songwriting style that’s as natural as a summer breeze, Hendrickson’s venture into the realm of acoustic blues, bluegrass, folk, and pop is a seamless transition.
The Rockford, IL native is no stranger to the music scene. At an age when most kids are preoccupied with obtaining a driver’s license, Ernie Hendrickson was making a name for himself in the area’s regional music scene. Since the age of 16, he has hit the road many times over, playing in a variety of bands throughout Illinois. Now, at the age of 30, Hendrickson has the musical resume of a seasoned veteran. Having opened and shared the same stage with artists such as Jon Scofield, Victor Wooten, Leftover Salmon, Tim Reynolds, Jerry Garcia Band, and Particle, along with playing the most prestigious of venues and festivals, Ernie Hendrickson has the references and experience to back it up.
Since 2003, Illinois-based singer-songwriter Dan Hubbard has released seven albums and toured extensively through the Midwest and both coasts. In the process, he’s shared the stage with some of the industry’s top artists, built a strong fan base, become a refined songwriter and earned critical acclaim for his efforts. With his foundation in the classic sounds of Tom Petty, Van Morrison, Neil Young and Jackson Browne, Hubbard carries songs of love, loss and soul searching. Like the influential front-men before him, Hubbard delivers a message that people can relate to in good times and bad.
