Ernest Cecil Paul Dufour, at age 18 started his musical career when he entered and won second place at the Port Steven Tavern. It was in 1998 when he won a first place medal at the local YMCA Festival for folk song accomplishment, and a N.O.T.A. Right Track Recognition Award in October 1999. His first recording was his 1998 six-song demo tape. Last reported, he was working on his debut country and folk album. - The Diskery




Ernie Dufour is a solo independent singer songwriter, from, Ontario, Canada.   He was inspired as a young child (at the age of 5!) by The Beatles.  In Grade One, Ernie and his classmates were asked what they wanted to be when they grew up.  Ernie replied:  “I want to play guitar and sing like my older brothers!”

Ernie’s dream in life is to create original songs, like The Beatles.  For Ernie, music has been a lifetime passion, adventure, and challenge.  Ernie’s other, main musical inspirations are Deep Purple, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Pink Floyd and Bob Dylan.  Most importantly, he is inspired everyday by his two beautiful boys.

Ernie’s main musical sounds are rock, folk rock and blues.  He also loves to play country music as well.  Ernie plays all of the tracks on his original music including acoustic guitar, electric guitar, bass, lead vocals and back up vocals.  Rolf Fiesel is Ernie’s session drummer.  Ernie records and produces all of his music at home in his recording studio.  

Everyday is a struggle of survival.  To Ernie, music is life.  He recalls many times when music saved his life in the past.  It continues to do so today.  

In May 2022, Ernie released his album “Hollow Moon”, a collection of nine songs.  This current album and all of Ernie’s vast, original music collection is available on CD Baby, Apple Music, Spotify, Youtube, Deezer, and most other online platforms.
