Nashville, TN – Grammy® nominated and multi-award winning gospel group Ernie Haase & Signature Sound recently received a MusicCityUpdate_EHSSPrayerBreakfast_1special assignment from the Governor of Wisconsin, Mr. Scott Walker. The popular group was invited to perform at the Annual Greater Milwaukee Governor’s Prayer Breakfast, which was held on the National Day of Prayer, May 2, 2013.

 In addition to Governor Scott Walker, the featured speaker was Jolinda Wade, mother of NBA basketball superstar Dwyane Wade. Ernie Haase & Signature Sound delighted the crowd with selections from their latest recording, Glorious Day, along with familiar favorites.
 “It was truly an honor to be asked to perform at this very special event” commented Haase. “Thank you to Governor Scott Walker and the entire team for asking us to be a part of the Milwaukee Governor’s Prayer Breakfast!”
The Milwaukee event has been held for over 40 years.
Combining 21st century ideas with the timeless quality of great quartets from the 1950s, this Grammy-nominated, Dove award-winning group has broken the traditional mold of gospel quartets. With their unconventional approach to communicating the Good News, Ernie Haase & Signature Sound (EHSS) are blazing a trail through the heart of Gospel music with groundbreaking originality.
The group’s founder and leader, Ernie Haase, got his start in Gospel music as a long-time member of the renowned Cathedral Quartet, and his roots are deeply planted in the rich legacy of music that is both meaningful and thoroughly entertaining. After the Cathedrals bid farewell to their five-decade run in the music industry, Ernie formed Ernie Haase & Signature Sound. With chart-topping DVDs and audio releases, the group’s success continues to gain momentum with each new release. Their latest release, Glorious Day (StowTown Records / Provident Distribution), is available at Walmart, Best Buy, and other retail stores as well as iTunes, Rhapsody and all other digital retail outlets.

Written by SGN Scoops on May 15, 2013 – 10:08 am -

Popular Ernie Haase & Signature Sound Vocalist Steps Out On Solo Release Featuring Special Guests Beyond The Ashes, Dailey & Vincent, Ernie Haase & Signature Sound, Karen Peck & New River, and Russ Taff

Nashville, Tenn. (May 14, 2013) – StowTown Records will release the debut solo project from populardevin Ernie Haase & Signature Sound vocalist, Devin McGlamery, on May 21. A special release party concert will be held on Tuesday, May 21, 2013 at The Listening Room in Nashville, TN at 6 PM and will feature a live band and special guests. Admission is free and copies of the project will be available at a special rate of $10 for one night only.

“This is a dream come true,” exclaimed Devin McGlamery. “I’ve wanted to record a solo project for so long – to see this day come closer is almost surreal. I am like a kid at Christmas, it’s almost here!”

The release, containing 12 tracks, has a little bit of something for everyone. “Anyone who knows me well, knows that I love all styles of music and I think you will hear that reflected” shares McGlamery. From time-tested classics to brand-new tunes, the CD is highlighted by special guest appearances from some of Devin’s personal music heroes and best friends in the industry. “I had a wish list when I began recording and I am blown away that all of my heroes and friends said YES!” The title track, “Love Is A Verb,” gets a little help from up-and-coming progressive trio, Beyond The Ashes, while Dailey and Vincent are featured on “From My Rags to His Riches.” “Beyond The Ashes have become dear friends to me so sharing the title track with them is special. In the bluegrass world, there’s none better than Dailey & Vincent, so to have them on this project is an honor!”

A very special performance comes as Devin sings the tender ballad “While I Still Can,” with Karen Peck & New River. This is a remake of the popular song Devin sang with the group. “This song means so much more to me, now that my children are a little older. I see moments slipping by and I want to cherish them while I still can. It was special to sing this with my mentor and friend Karen Peck and the group.” “Up Above My Head” fulfilled a life-long dream for Devin as he stood beside his childhood musical hero, Russ Taff, to record the track. “I still can’t believe that I got to sing with Russ Taff! Are you kidding me? I’m glad to have it “on record” because I wouldn’t believe it. The amount of respect and admiration I have for Russ Taff cannot be explained in words and we had so much fun in the studio.”

Rounding out the special guests are Devin’s musical brothers, Ernie Haase & Signature Sound, featured on the track, “That’s Why.” “Ernie, Doug and Paul are my best bro’s, my workout buds, my musical family – I had to have them on this. It just wouldn’t be complete.” Read more »
