Ernest Kohl biography

Ernest Kohl, recording artist and multi-talented performer, has become a celebrated force within the music industry with an impressive body of international hits. With 17 consecutive "Top Ten" smash singles, six of which soared to the Number One position in Dance Music Authority (DMA), Billboard, Street Sound and Dance Music Report's (DMR) Top Fifty charts, and Dance Radio charts, it's no wonder Kohl received DMA's "Best Male Vocalist" Award in 1990. In 1991, 1992, 1993, 1994, 1995 and 1996 he received nominations for "Song of The Year," "Best Producer/Arranger" and "Best Live Performer" as well as "Best Male Vocalist." In just a few short years, Ernest has also established himself as an accomplished producer, musical arranger, writer, choreographer and chairman of his own independent production company.

His crowd-thrilling performances have made his concerts a favorite in major venues throughout the world. Ernest's boundless energy has earned him the reputation of being one of the hardest working and most exciting live performers in the recording industry today. New York City Music Critic Zecca recently praised Kohl for "showing us all why he won the "Best Male Vocalist" Award. "His extraordinary voice, looks, and performance coupled with complex choreography left the others in the 'dust.' "

Ernest has been singing, dancing and acting professionally since childhood. His formal training began at The American Musical and Dramatic Academy in New York City. A protégé of famed vocal teacher Katie Agresta, Ernest credits her for helping him develop his critically acclaimed vocal talents.

He has studied dance with the American Ballet Theater and the respected choreographers Chuck Kelly and Drew Packolyk. Kohl's interest in contemporary dance then led him to a successful collaboration with choreographer A.C. Ciulla (choreographer of Broadway's dance music sensation "Footloose" and a former member of the Grammy-nominated C&C Music Factory). 

This creative alliance has produced a new, even more energetic dimension to Kohl's live "The Explosive Tour", "The Tornado Tour" and his production "The Importance Tour/Tour De Importance", and his last production "The Make You Weak Tour" as well as his video performances. Ernest now even delves deeper into his passion for contemporary dance, teaming with some of New York City's hottest new choreographers, launching into Ernest's newest Concert and Media endeavor "The Ernest Kohl "HITS!" Tour"/"Ernest Kohl Live"

In addition to his respected recorded catalog, Ernest Kohl's media appeal is igniting worldwide. Released via video format, Ernest has six highly-rated chart busters currently in distribution: "Don't You Want My Love?/Stomp, Follow Your Heart, Our Love Is Here To Stay and Sooner or Later (the original version). Ernest also released Sooner or Later '96 , a brand new production of his previous smash hit which enjoyed renewed popularity on radio and club play and the video smash Don't Let Me Down Again on ZYX Records, which was also a featured song on the multi-million selling compilation US Dance Party!.

Ernest's last video hit was the world-wide smash Only You which received audience raves, as well as critical praise for its enthralling new combination of music and visuals that showcase the magnetic imagery of Ernest Kohl.

Ernest has managed to bridge the gap between touring dates and his own production chores. Recently, his production, arranging and writing talents have contributed to the worldwide successes of such artists as: Phoebe Snow, Cappella, Jeanie Tracy, Linda Imperial, Vicki Shepard, and most recently, Ms Pepper MaShay.

The acting credits of Ernest Kohl are as varied as the vehicles in which he's appeared. His stage work has included roles in musicals such as "Cabaret," "Carousel", "Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dream Coat," and "The Rocky Horror Show." His film debut as a pimp in Euro-London Film's "Night People" is a stark contrast to his portrayal of Anthony Brent, a radical college student in Warner Bro's.' "The World According to Garp."

Ernest has enjoyed a successful modeling career that has landed him in the pages of GQ, Vogue and Newsweek. Currently working with consummate photographer Jack Pedota ("Batman Returns"), Kohl is featured as the Smalto Man in Smalto Cologne's "You Make Me Weak" advertising campaign.

Ernest's critically applauded full-length studio album/CD The Importance of Being produced the import hit singles This is the Moment and Moment to Moment (Overture to Ernest), Live It Up and the massive smash single and video hit Only You, that has already taken the world by storm.

The Importance of Being album/CD was produced by Ernest Kohl along with legendary producers Tom Moulton (Grace Jones, The Trammps, Gloria Gaynor,) Steve Skinner (arranger of Bette Midler's Grammy Award-winning From A Distance, producer/arranger of "To Deserve You," and co-producer/musical arranger of the Pulitzer Prize-winning, Grammy-nominated musical and original cast recording "Rent" which won four Tony Awards, including "Best Musical"), Eric Beall (Martha Wash), David Freiberg (Jefferson Starship). In addition to the album "The Importance of Being," Mr. Kohl has also released the first two of a series in his anthology collections entitled "The Portrait of Ernest Kohl - Vol. I. and Vol. 2"

Ernest's recent number one release entitled, You Make Me Weak (The Remixes) is available on Wide Angle/EMG Records. The original version of You Make Me Weak appears on The Importance of Being. This new release is a CD maxi-single with a dazzling array of turbo charged remixes that are destined to make this a major crossover hit for radio and clubs. Also featured on this new maxi-single is a special new holiday song Happy New Year! with a special guest cameo appearance by diva du jour, Ms. Pepper MaShay. Happy New Year! was also featured on the special benefit album/CD Carols Across America , a CD benefiting AIDS and Women's Breast Cancer. Mr. Kohl is proud and honored to be a part of this great project.

Ernest Kohl's number one smash release entitled All I Know , a cover of the Jimmy Webb evergreen, originally recorded by Art Garfunkel in 1973. Ernest's new update took him on a quest to England to get the "NEW" sound he wanted to create. This is a sizzling hot new update of the song, pioneering the genre of progressive crossover dance. His new All I Know features an array of intense and slamming mixes by Mike Coppock and Tony Spalding, Julian Marsh, Stephen l. Freeman and Robert Oleysyck. The reviews were nothing short of sensational. It topped many prime DJ's charts and record pool charts, two weeks before its retail release. It was also a featured track on KLONE Records Mad About The Boy #12 compilation in the UK.

Now Ernest has introduced a new take on one of his previous hits, Only You this time completely updating it in to a scorching progressive trance/pop crssover masterpiece entitled Only You 2005 (available on CD maxi-single and vinyl) which also features an enticing video.

Ernest Kohl's successful album/CD HITS! , released early 2005, was a brand new collection of his smash hits from his enormous catalogue over the past three decades. This is a special collection celebrating his 20th year in the music industry, in which each year he has scored a Top Ten record every year somewhere on the globe since 1985. The new album/CD also contains some special new remixes of his classic hits! .

Ernest was successful in the performance of his 2005/2006 World Wide "The Ernest Kohl "HITS!" Tour","ERNEST KOHL LIVE", playing to sell-out crowds and receiving rave reviews along with dividing his time doing press and media promotion for the new single and his new album/CD.

Ernest Kohl's "HITS!" also has the great honor of winning Best Greatest Hits Album for 2005 and the single Only You 2005 won "Best Remake Of The Year" as well. Following the huge success of his still charting initial single Live Like You Were Dying Ernest now presents his fans with the single most requested remake of his career, To Save the Love (remixes) from his new 2008 full length special edition 2 CD Greatest Hits collection entitled Essential released on Dance Street/ZYX/BMG/EMG which also features his brand new single Say Adieu with 12 slammin’ remixes. Essential hit the coveted #1 position in January of 2009 and Say Adieu hit #1 In February of 2009 as well, a "KOHL DOUBLE HITTER"!

2010 started strong for Ernest Kohl, signing with a new label, Famour/EMG/Uuniversal INC. and the release of his brand new Full-length Maxi-Single Wen U Dreem. Featuring 14 incredible remixes, it is fast rising up the Global Charts and over taking radio! Wen U Dreem  is from Ernest's forth-coming album Eternally which he is currently recording for release later this year. These releases are definitive of the NEW sound of Ernest Kohl.  Both the album and singles are being dedicated in memorial tribute to Brian Scott Harper, Ernest's Partner and Manager of 14 and 1/2 years who recently passed away of a massive heart attack (A Great Loss!). This new album truly shows the strength, confidence and perseverance of Ernest Kohl to continue on as Brian Scott Harper would have indeed wanted. The new musical direction of Ernest Kohl promises to mark his arrival as pop music's leading man.

2011 : Ernest Kohl's new single is entitled Sooner Or Later. The digital release includes not less than 20 remixes.

2012 : in January, Ernest released Avantgarde, The Original Broadway Cast Recording (30 years after it was recorded in 1982 when Ernest starred in it. This was the 1st Broadway Musical EVER to contain HI-NRG & Disco & Dance Music!). Then came the maxi singles remixes CD of Avantgarde/Sandfleas on March 28, 2012 exactly 30 years later of the exact date the original musical opened. Avantgarde and Sandfleas were 2 of the highight songs from the show, remixed in today's Hi-Nrg style, with bonus tracks. It charted and got major radio play as well. In July, his new single o be released was Anyone Who's Ever Been In Love. Maxi contained not less than 30 remixes. Song was featured on movie The Cosmopolitan.
