Ernie Haase & Signature Sound have
welcomed the addition of Paul Harkey (pictured right)
their new bass, fillling the position after
Ian Owens left the group. Owens has
since joined Soul’d Out, making that trio
a quartet. Harkey has previously toured
with groups including Crystal River, Anchormen and the LeFevre Quartet.
Paul, his wife Jennifer and their daughter
Cameron will welcome a new baby into
the family in late April. Ernie Haase says
“Paul has a voice that fills up the room,”
and will bring “another level of excitement”
to listening audiences.
Haase has also recently announced
that Dove-nominated trio Beyond the
Ashes has signed a recording contract
with StowTown Records, formed in 2010
by Haase and Wayne Haun. Beyond
the Ashes is working on a record to be
released in spring 2013. EHSS member
Devin McGlamery has also signed with
StowTown and will introduce a solo
album in 2013.
