Big hopes. Out-of-the-box ideas. Ernie Haase has never been one to think small. He may have started life in a little town in Indiana, but he's traveled around the world offering joy and encouragement through the music of his group, Ernie Haase & Signature Sound.
In fact, EHSS continues to gain fans in unexpected places, bringing high-energy harmonies and a message of hope to NASCAR crowds at the Atlanta Motor Speedway, stages in Australia with Mercy Me and Michael W. Smith, corporate events like the Advocare School of Success at Dallas Cowboys
(AT&T) Stadium, concerts from Latvia to India and from South Africa to New Zealand, a sports arena in Budapest with Franklin Graham, and a tour of historic American theaters to support EHSS' upcoming Broadway project featuring *Les MisÚrables *legend J. Mark McVey.
Front man Ernie Haase may not have been quite tall enough for the NBA (following the Cleveland Cavaliers happens to be one of his hobbies), but he's as tenacious on stage as star guards are on the basketball court. This creative, hard-working tenor was part of an unforgettable group called The
Cathedrals, as well as the Gaither Homecoming Tour, so it was his goal to someday put his own dream team on the platform every night--and now he is the guy who calls the plays to make each concert a fresh experience for the audience.
When he started the group in 2003, Haase drafted fellow basketball fanatic Doug Anderson. A country-loving baritone, Anderson is a GMA Dove Award-winning solo artist in his own right, and recently released his second project to eager fans. Lead singer Devin McGlamery is another high draft pick who also gained a GMA Dove Award for his debut solo recording. Paul Harkey, the newest addition to the group, brings a memorable bass presence to the stage to round out the team Haase always hoped he would lead.
As a group, Ernie Haase & Signature Sound is both GRAMMY(R)-nominated and GMA Dove Award-winning, a radio favorite in the United States and internationally, and a leader in CD sales and long form music video sales--with several RIAA(R)-certified Gold(R) and Platinum(R) DVDs.
