An astonishingly diverse solo debut by the Isleys' axeman, High Wire is full of screaming guitars, tight

riffs, ear-tugging melodies, and evocative vocals.

Ernie was born in Cincinnati, where his older brothers formed The Isley Brothers, first as a gospel group,

then as a secular singing group. In 1960 his family moved to Englewood/Teaneck, New Jersey. He currently

resides in St. Louis, Missouri.

Jimi Hendrix lived in the Isley home and played guitar for The Isley Brothers for two years, 1963-65. Ernie

started playing drums at 12. His first live gig as a member of his brothers' band was as a drummer in 1966

at the age of 14. Ernie was influenced by José Feliciano's version of "Light My Fire" and in 1968 got his

first guitar. He is a self-taught musician. In 1968 he did his first professional recording, playing bass

on the Isleys' breakthrough funk smash "It's Your Thing", released in 1969. He played electric guitar,

acoustic guitar, and drums on the group's early 1970s' albums Get Into Something, Givin' It Back, and

Brother, Brother, Brother, before fully joining The Isley Brothers in 1973, becoming a multi-

instrumentalist playing acoustic guitar, electric guitar, drums and percussion.

Ernie is a prolific songwriter, penning such Isley classics as "Fight the Power", "Harvest for the World",

"Voyage to Atlantis", "(At Your Best) You Are Love", "Footsteps In the Dark", "Brown Eyed Girl", among

others, and "That Lady" (co-written with brother-in-law Chris), "Between the Sheets" (co-written with

brother Marvin and Chris)", "Take Me To The Next Phase" (co-written with Marvin and Chris), among other

songs. His signature guitar riffs are easily recognizable on classics such as "Summer Breeze", "That Lady",

"Voyage To Atlantis", "Choosey Lover", and others. In 1984, Ernie, Marvin and Chris formed the group

Isley-Jasper-Isley, scoring with their number one album Caravan of Love.

In 1990, Ernie released his first solo album, High Wire. In the same year he recorded a cover version of

The Cars' "Let's Go" for the compilation album Rubáiyát. In 1991, he rejoined Ronald and Marvin on tour and

in the studio. In 1996 they scored with their platinum CD Mission to Please, and again in 2001 with

"Eternal", the lyrics to the title cut written by Ernie.

The Isley Brothers were inducted into the Rock n' Roll Hall of Fame in 1992.[2]

In 2014 the Isley Brothers received the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award.

Currently Ernie and Ronald work and tour together as The Isley Brothers. In 2010 and 2011 he participated

on the Experience Hendrix Tour. He is a musician on the Janet Jackson album Discipline, on the tracks

"Never Letchu Go" and "The 1". He performed on the majority of the 2012 Joss Stone CD The Soul Sessions

Vol. 2.

Fender Custom Shop has built for him three custom Zeal Stratocasters, using his personal design.


Ernie is active as a musical mentor in schools and community music programs. He has been a returning guest

lecturer at Berklee School of Music in Boston. He is married and has one daughter, Alexandra.
