Ernie Haase is a tenor singer/songwriter from Evansville, Indiana. He began his career in the 1980s with the Dixie Melody Boys and Squire Parsons And Redeemed before launching a solo career in 1987. In 1990, he became the last tenor singer for the Cathedral Quartet when he was hired to replace Kurt Young. Six months later, he married Lisa Younce, the daughter of Cathedrals bass singer George Younce.
Haase remained with the Cathedrals until they retired in 1999. His signature song while with the Cathedrals was Oh What A Savior. After the Cathedrals' retirement, Haase briefly embarked on a solo career before joining Jake Hess, Wesley Pritchard, and his father-in-law George Younce as a member of the Old Friends Quartet. When that group disbanded after the death of Hess, Haase founded Ernie Haase And Signature Sound in 2003.
