Ernie Shepherd Lead Vocals
Ernie has been a Journey fan since he was 10 years old. It has always been a dream of his to stand on a stage and sing the classic songs made famous by his favorite singer Steve Perry. Ernie also loves Soul music made famous in the 60's...Sam Cooke, Otis Redding and Marvin Gaye are big influences. Ernie's favorite part of the show is getting to meet the people that come out to support the band. Ernie is originally from Boston MA, but proudly calls North Carolina home.
Choosing a Favorite Journey Album is hard for Ernie because they each bring him to a time in his life that he holds dear. If you had to press him he would most likely say Raised on Radio for its soulful overtones. His Favorite song to sing live is Faithfully.
