Biography:

Ernie Haase & Signature Sound is a southern gospel vocal quartet combining traditional vocals with a younger hipper look. The quartet founded in 2002 by Ernie Haase, former Cathedral Quartet tenor and former Gold City pianist, Garry Jones.

The Cathedral Quartet announced their farewell tour in 1999. Lead singer Glen Payne died on October 15, 1999 before the end of the tour. After a time former Cathedrals bass George Younce and the legendary Jake Hess along with Bill Gaither formed The Old Friends Quartet with Ernie Haase, Wesley Pritchard, and Garry Jones. The Old Friends Quartet disbanded after about two years because of Hess and Younce’s ill health.

Haase, along with Jones, still had a love for quartet singing and wished to create a quartet that was 21st Century in image and attitude, but traditional in sound, emulating the great Southern Gospel groups of the 20th Century, including the legendary Statesmen Quartet, the Stamps Quartet, the Blackwood Brothers and of course, the Cathedral Quartet. Haase’s father-in-law George Younce became co-owner of the Signature Sound Quartet and was instrumental in getting the group an affiliation with the Gaither Music Group. In 2004, the group changed its name to Ernie Haase and Signature Sound.

The group won two GMA Dove Awards in 2008 for “ Get Away, Jordan “ and one in 2009 for “Reason Enough” at the 40th GMA Dove Awards.
