Originally from Indiana, Ernie Haase lives in Stow, Ohio, a quiet suburb on the outskirts of Akron, with his wife Lisa.
At a very young age, Ernie shared with his parents the desire to sing for Jesus, and he's been fulfilling that desire ever since. This creative, hard-working tenor was a member of The Cathedrals and the Gaither Homecoming Tour, but it was always his goal to put his own "dream team" on the stage so in 2003 he started the group Signature Sound.
Signature Sound was started in 2003 by Ernie Haase. The group also includes baritone Doug Anderson, lead singer Devin McGlamery and bass Paul Harkey.
As a group, Ernie Haase & Signature Sound is both GRAMMY-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-certified Gold and Platinum DVDs.
Customer Reviews For "Favourite Hymns of Fanny Crosby"Write Your Own Review
The anticipation was high when Ernie Haase and Signature Sound (EHSS) announced they were doing a tribute album to Crosby. Released under the most enterprising StowTown Records, "The Favorite Hymns of Fanny Crosby" is a treat. Here EHSS have gathered 8 of selections from Crosby's songbook and they have given these paeans the EHSS patented touch. Nevertheless, before we delve into an exposition of the record, two matters of acute disappointment need to be expressed. First, this is a fairly short album with only 8 songs; with a running time that clocks in at only around 31 minutes, this is certainly on the shorter end of the time spectrum. Second, with 9,000 Fanny Crosby hymns, EHSS have only restrained themselves to Crosby's more familiar offerings. One would have wished they were more adventurous in unearthing one or two of her more obscure compositions. Nevertheless, despite the griping, this is a fabulous album. Instead of bringing the showbiz glitz and big orchestrated sound expressed in their previous Broadway album into this record, the backings to these hymns are pretty earthy.
