Product Notes

Respected as a composer, lyricist and singer Ernie Smith has a deep, rich voice that draws comparisons to Neil Diamond and Cat Stevens. Jamaican born reggae musician Ernie Smith comes to you with a catalogue spanning decades, 20 Albums, countless live performances and a significant fan base. Ernie Smith's professional musical career began with his first recording in 1967. An original composition and recording - 'I Can't Take It' which was later recorded by Johnny Nash as 'Tears On My Pillow'. Hits followed in quick succession, including 'Bend Down', 'Ride On Sammy', 'One Dream', 'Pitta Patta', and 'Duppy Gunman'. Ernie has written over 200 songs, some of which have been recorded by other artists, including Johnny Nash, Rita Marley, Chakka Demus and Pliers, Sanchez, Twiggy, Tinga Stewart, Ken Lazarus, John Jones, Judy Boucher, Goldie Hawn, Eddie Lovette, Yellowman among others. In 1972 at the World Popular Song Festival of the Yamaha Foundation in Tokyo, he won the grand prize competing with songwriters like Neil Sedaka, and Michael Legrand, with his original composition of 'Life is Just for Living.' Ernie became the first Jamaican musician to win an International award. For this historic achievement, he became the first musician in the field of Popular Music to be honoured by the Jamaican Government. As well as performing with Jamaica 's foremost bands, Ernie has the distinction of being Jamaica 's premier solo act, performing as far afield as Germany, Italy, South Korea, Switzerland, Holland, Belgium, France, UK and the USA. Country Mile is Ernie's latest studio album containing not only a grouping of original compositions that are destined to become standards in the Jamaican repertoire, but also some Jamaican adaptations of world wide favourites.
