Ernest " Che" Skinner


About Me

I began writing with letters to the editor and decided that with the feedback from readers that I should pursue a more in-depth devotion to my labour of love. I started interviewing Rock Stars in 2017 and my connections and leads kept growing. In addition to writing for Montreal Rocks, I have been published via the Western Standard, Rocknation Magazine, The Rock Source and many more. I am grateful to all of the industry insiders who have guided me along and now call upon me on a regular basis.

I must also say that all of this was made possible by the generosity of Tony from Kapptive Studios where he helped design this site with my direction and is a genius with his  knowledge and talent. If you need any kind of website building, look no further than no matter where you are in the world.

Now, moving forward…..
