Born on December 12, 1964, in Cynthiana, Indiana, gospel singer Ernie Haase grew up in Newburgh, Indiana, attending Castle High School, moving on to Oakland City College on a basketball scholarship after graduation. Blessed with a wonderful tenor voice, Haase began singing with the gospel group the Noblemen while in Oakland City, and appeared in a succession of groups, including Earthlight and the DMB Band (Dixie Melody Boys) before joining Redeemed in 1986. He became a member of the legendary Cathedrals in 1990, singing with the group until 1999 when the Cathedrals officially retired from performing. Haase began a solo career, releasing several CDs, including What a Difference a Day Makes (1999) and Never Alone (2000). Forming the innovative gospel quartet Signature Sound with Ryan Seaton, Doug Anderson, and Tim Duncan, Haase released Ernie Haase & Signature Sound in 2005, following it with the holiday album Christmas with Ernie Haase & Signature Sound in 2006 and Dream On in 2008, all issued by Gaither Music Group. The group quickly became one of the most popular acts in Bill Gaither's gospel stable. Here We Go Again, released in 2012, was the group's first album on the new imprint Stowtown Records, a label venture between Haase and producer Wayne Haun. ~ Steve Leggett
