“After All Of This Is Over” – Here is a new song written and recorded at the home studio during covid-19 quarantine. I am deeply moved at the thought that we could make something better out of this ordeal.
Ernie Hendrickson’s new album, Roll On, was released in September 2019 on LoHi Records. Produced by Brian Deck in Chicago with a stellar roster of studio musicians, Roll On features thirteen new songs by the acclaimed American songwriter.
Six years after releasing his 2013 Nashville-recorded album One for the Dreamers, Americana singer-songwriter and guitarist Ernie Hendrickson returns to his Chicago home with Roll On, his most mature, observant and musically wide ranging collection.
CHICAGO–It was six years ago that Ernie Hendrickson, who was born in the Wisconsin region known as the Driftless Area and raised in Illinois, released his last album, One for the Dreamers. Hendrickson, who recorded One for the Dreamers in the fabled city of Nashville with producer Chad Cromwell and a cast of musicians that included legendary Willie Nelson harmonica wizard Mickey Raphael and harmony singer Lera Lynn, took away the myriad lessons of Music City, and the record displayed his songwriting savvy, guitar acumen and feel for the American language.

Ernie was recently inverviewed by Jeremy D. Bonfiglio, the Sight & Sound Editor at The Herald-Palladium. Ernie talks about his band, new music, fatherhood, inspiration and much more.
Here’s a bit of what they talked about:
A lot has changed for singer-songwriter Ernie Hendrickson.
There’s the addition to his name. The one-time solo artist has been playing under the billing of Ernie Hendrickson & Citizens of Love, a trio led by the Chicago-based multi-instrumentalist that typically includes drummer Devin Ulery and bass player Pete Muschong.
There’s the addition to his family. He and wife, Quinn, have a now 18-month-old daughter, Tansey.
Then there is time. Hendrickson recently turned 40, the age where mind and body welcome you to the joys of mid-life, crises and all.
What hasn’t changed, however, is Hendrickson’s commitment to his craft. Born in Wisconsin and raised in Rockford, Ill., Hendrickson grew up on a deep well of American roots music, which he continues to draw inspiration from.
