(Nashville Tenn.)Â â€“ Doug Anderson, popular baritone vocalist for Ernie Haase & Signature Sound, is set to release his debut solo project, Dreaminâ€™ Wide Awake, May 3 on StowTown Records (Provident-Integrity Distribution). The project, produced by Wayne Haun, features the warm and tender vocals of GMA Dove Awards Male Vocalist nominee Doug Anderson. The ten-song debut project features guest appearances by multiple GMA Dove Awards nominees Ernie Haase & Signature Sound, The Collingsworth Family, and a duet with Charlotte Ritchie. The first single, â€œJesus Is Holding My Hand,â€ is already impacting radio markets across the country and currently holds the #57 spot on the Singing News Top 80 Chart for April 2011.
â€œThis project is about my life, family, friends, hopes, dreams, faith, successes and failures â€“ it truly takes the listener on a musical journey,â€ states Anderson.
“Our friends across the country have been asking for a solo project from Doug for years,” comments Ernie Haase, executive producer of the project. “Now is the time!Â He could sing the yellow pages and make you cry!”
On Saturday, April 30, Doug Anderson will celebrate the release of Dreaminâ€™ Wide Awake with a concert at his alma mater, Lapel High School in Lapel, IN. The sold-out concert will benefit the Lapel High School Education and Music Department, the first endeavor for MAD34 Foundation started by Doug and his wife Michele as a way to give back to their community.
Doug says: â€œIt just seems natural to debut Dreaminâ€™ Wide Awake in my home-town where it all started for me. The people and the experiences Iâ€™ve had in Lapel molded me into who I am today. Michelle and I are excited to give back to our community.â€
