Ernie Haase & Signature Sound Suspends 2020 Tour; Announces New Endeavor

Written by Staff on June 26, 2020 – 5:58 am -

Ernie Haase & Signature Sound Suspends 2020 Tour; Announces New Endeavor

Ernie Haase & Signature Sound

Stow, OH (June 25, 2020) – After much prayer, consultation and taking a long look at the big picture of how this Covid-19 crisis has impacted every aspect of our lives, I have made peace with the decision to suspend all EHSS touring for 2020. We are hopeful to resume touring in March 2021. However, should things dramatically change and we can all gather together sooner safely, you will be the first to know!

As a leader, I not only feel a responsibility for livelihoods, but also for the LIVES of everyone involved! I feel this for you too, the extended EHSS family whom we have come to love and adore. The concern for the health and safety of everyone is more important to me than trying to go forward with a tour.

I sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you. Please know that we are working to reschedule our 2020 dates and look forward to seeing you all in 2021. Ticketing questions should be directed to the point of purchase.

Ernie Haase & Signature Sound Suspends 2020 Tour; Announces New Endeavor

Ernie Haase

The good news is we WILL carry on! We are taking this opportunity to expand our territory by turning our Friday evening “Ernie’s Living Room Sing” into a longer expanded weekly concert series/ TV/webisode.

The debut will be September 11, 2020 at 7:00 PM EST. We will start with a special themed program that you will NOT want to miss!

For now, these weekly programs will be broadcast on the EHSS Facebook fan page, as well as on my YouTube channel. I have tons of creative ideas that have me brimming with excitement!

In closing, many sweet people like you, for the last 33 years have asked me, “How can I help you, Ernie?” I have always said, “If I ever figure that out, I’ll let you know.” Here is how you can help: pray, spread the word, and “partner” with us by going to www.ErnieHaase.com and clicking on the PARTNER tab (Coming Soon). There, you will find out how you can help us make “Something Beautiful” out of this gift of crisis. I say “gift” because I truly believe this quote to be true:

“The Greek root of the word crisis is ‘to sift,’ as in to shake out the excesses and leave only what’s important. That’s what crises do. They shake things up until we are forced to hold on to only what matters most. The rest falls away.”- Glennon Doyle

As you can see, I have a lot of work to do. Do not think that I don’t have reservations; I am human. But I’d rather walk into what is possible with hope and faith in a divine plan than sit and cry over what used to be. That has never been me, and it is not going to be me now.

Thank you for your loving support…it’s time to WAKE UP and go to work.

Here we go!
Ernie

Godsey Media Announces Arize Partners Program

Written by Staff on June 17, 2020 – 3:36 pm -

Godsey Media Announces Arize Partners ProgramBridging the gap between the artist and the audience in a fresh way

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (June 16 2020)  – Scott Godsey of Godsey Media Management announces the beginning of a new era, Arize Partners.  Arize Partners strives to bring artists and audiences together as partners in ministry with exclusive access and content.
The new service is set to officially launch on Friday, June 19, 2020 at 5:00 PM ET with Brian Free and Assurance, Karen Peck and New River, 11th Hour, Tribute, Hoppers, Talleys, Aaron Wilburn, LeFevre Quartet, Whisnants, Nelons, Freemans, Abraham Productions and more to be featured.
Scott Godsey explains, “The last few months have taught us that we need each other now more than ever. Faith based music Artists that you know, love, follow, and support saw their livelihoods ripped away. Godsey Media stepped in quickly with The HopeSings Concert Series to raise financial support for them. Because of their supporters around the world, we were able to generate over $300,000.00 to help these artists get through the unique time of quarantine and social distancing.  We heard from many supporters that wanted to do more for the music that creates life change.
Godsey Media Announces Arize Partners ProgramScott and his team at Godsey Media saw the success of the HopeSings Concert Series and have worked to create a sustainable model that continues support for the artists as they start looking at what the new normal is going to become.  The idea is to create partnerships with access and benefits like never before. A true win-win for artists and supporters.  The team for music artists is expanding beyond the people singing the songs on stage.
Arize Partners is just that, a platform that creates a partnership between the audience and the artist they want to support. The partners will get exclusive access, music, concerts, merchandise, and so much more. You select a tier of support and then enjoy the benefits. In turn, the audience’s financial support helps the artist to have a solid foundation of income as well as the ability to go to churches and venues that could not cover their travel expenses.
Scott continues, “We believe that Arize Partners will allow our friends to keep ministering the Gospel through the reach of the internet regardless of the travel situation or lack of music sales. It will also allow audiences that love these artists the ability to stay connected on a regular basis and have unprecedented access to the music and the ministry.”

The Old Paths release What Love Does

Written by Staff on June 5, 2020 – 10:56 am -

The Old Paths release What Love DoesArden, North Carolina (June 5, 2020) — Following a year in which they released two albums and had a #1 song with “Come Sunday Morning,The Old Paths (website HERE), are sharing the many things God’s love can do on their new album, “What Love Does,” now available on all streaming platforms.

Each song captures the many ways God’s boundless love blesses each person, each day.

“What Love Does” begins with “This Is Amazing Grace,” telling of all that God has done so that we may live with love and grace. It’s followed by the first single, “I Got The Grace, He Gets The Glory,” a high-energy and upbeat song describing how God is always a solid foundation to stand on, despite sins and trials.

“When I heard this song, I couldn’t help but think that this is the theme for life as a believer,” says bass singer Daniel Ashmore who is featured on this song. “I can’t take credit for something I didn’t do and something I didn’t earn, therefore I get the grace and He gets the glory! That’s a message we want to share and this song sums it up perfectly.”

You Can’t Get Away From God,” written by Kenna Turner West, Sue C. Smith and Brian White and featuring Doug Roark, inspired the album’s title. Each verse tells vignettes of how people in tough places don’t think they’ll find relief, yet God is always there for comfort.

The powerful “Pray While You Wait” reminds that God’s timing is always perfect. When life feels impossible, know God will come through and you can always pray while you wait.

The Old Paths release What Love Does

Old Paths

Bread,” another upbeat song, illustrates how God can accomplish the impossible through the story of the loaves and fishes, while the instrumental “How Great Is Our God” — which features Ashmore on saxophone — allows listeners to feel the music, and pause to appreciate it.

Look At All I Lost” and the final song “Salvation’s Song” talk about no longer being lost after finding Christ, and being freed from guilt, shame and the weight of life. With powerful and moving vocals, these songs capture the theme of the album’s title — God’s love is capable of amazing things.

“We are so excited about this new album. The title ‘What Love Does’ is really the theme of the album, reflected in the song selection. We feel this is the best album we’ve done that really showcases our new sound with our current lineup,” says Ashmore. “Through our many failures and different circumstances in life, God exemplifies His love for us in His endless pursuit to save and change us. God is never late, and is always working all things for our good and His glory, because that’s what love does.”

Listen to What Love Does HERE.

About The Old Paths
In 2003, The Old Paths began its ministry taking the group’s name from Jeremiah 6:16 which says, “Thus saith the Lord, Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for The Old Paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls.” With this vision in mind and a heart for ministry, founding members Douglas Roark and Tim Rackley started The Old Paths as a trio.

The group morphed into a quartet shortly after. They signed with Crossroads Music’s Sonlite Records in 2012. Their album “Right Now” was a breakout project for them producing two #1 hits, “Battlestand” and “God’s Great,” within a six-month span. In 2013, the group was named Favorite New Quartet in the Singing News Fan Awards, and songs like “Love Them to Jesus” and “Ordinary People” also quickly became fan favorites.

The quartet made the decision in 2015 to come off the road for a while due to family circumstances. While the decision was not easy, they left the door open for a possible return to gospel music and touring. When God opened that door for them in 2017, they were ready to walk through it. With a renewed passion for ministry, The Old Paths took the stage again at the Memphis Quartet Show in June 2017.

The group now consists of founding members Tim Rackley and Douglas Roark, longtime bass singer Daniel Ashmore and tenor Steve Ladd.

Tim, Doug and Daniel found the right blend with Steve to be able to come together as The Old Paths again. The goal of the group has stayed the same after all these years to see people come to know Jesus Christ as Savior and to encourage fellow believers. They are thankful that God gave them the chance to return to the platform again to sing and encourage. They could not be more excited about this new stage of their ministry and to see what God has for the group in the future.

Established in 1993, following the combination of Horizon Music Group and Sonlite Records, Crossroads now operates several divisions including Crossroads Label Group (Horizon Records, Sonlite Records, Mountain Home Music, Skyland Records, Pisgah Ridge Records, Crossroads Records, and Organic Records), Crossroads Distribution, Crossroads Radio Promotions, and Crossroads Recording Studios.

Every day, Jeanette has gone live on Facebook, singing worship songs that have touched her heart in this unusual time. Those daily worship moments turned into a new release.

“People from all over the world were watching these and asking for more. These familiar songs were bringing hope to hurting people,” added Matt Felts, Gateway Management.

Recorded in Nashville, this marks the second release for Rachel Jeanette in the last year, with her Christmas project, My Christmas, garnering airplay around the world and being added to numerous top digital playlists.
