Nashville, TN (July 12, 2021)
With the release of the title track from their forthcoming album, multi-GRAMMY Award nominated group Ernie Haase & Signature Sound “Keep On Keeping On.” The album is set to release July 23 release via StowTown Records.
The inspiration for “Keep On Keeping On” came to Haase, who wrote the song with Lee Black and Sue C. Smith over Zoom, during a dark, cold day in January.
“I said, ‘Lord, how can I make a difference in these dark days?’ And it was as if He said to me, ‘Ernie, feed my sheep. You keep doing what you do. I’m not asking you to change who you are. You got one more breath. Take one more step, rise up and say, take that step and remind my people to keep on keepin’ on,’” Haase explained.
After nearly a year without new music or tour dates, the title led Ernie Haase & Signature Sound to return to the studio to record the full-length album. Keeping On is an offering of mostly original songs that were born in those days of testing and trusting. The 14-song album was recorded in Nashville, executive produced by Haase, and produced by Wayne Haun and Kris Crunk.
In support of Keeping On, Ernie Haase & Signature Sound are also spreading the album’s message of hope across the country on the Keeping On Tour. The 30-plus city tour kicked off in Memphis on June 19. Over the July 4 weekend, the group also spent four days entertaining fans at their sold-out, 9th annual EHSS Fan Retreat in Sugarcreek, Ohio.
Keeping On follows Ernie Haase & Signature Sound’s album Something Beautiful, a tribute to the legacy of Bill and Gloria Gaither, which received a nomination for Best Roots Gospel Album at this year’s GRAMMY Awards. This marked Haase’s eighth GRAMMY nomination individually and the group’s third collective nomination. Ernie Haase & Signature Sound is also a GMA Dove Award-winning quartet, 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.
