Youtube Roundup – 6/29/11

June 29, 2011 By: Aaron Category: Ernie Haase and Signature Sound, SG Artists, SG Music, The Melody Boys, Youtube

While working on a review for an upcoming project, I went to Youtube, among other resources, to see if I could find out whether or not some songs were previously recorded by another group. I’ll be the first to admit that when it comes to an advent of technology like that site, I’m fascinated and usually get a bout of ADD, following a rabbit trail through the “Suggestions” sidebar. Somewhere in all of that, I stumbled across some recent footage taken at an Ernie Haase & Signature Sound concert in Bloomington, Illinois. The videos themselves aren’t as high quality as some out there, but they are still enjoyable, and many of them feature songs I’ve not heard the group do since Ian Owens joined on bass earlier this year. Check them out:

Someday – I haven’t heard the group do this opener to their 2007 Get Away Jordan project in quite a while, and Owens is settling quite well into the bass role for the group. For some reason, his backing harmonies on the first chorus remind of London Parris, which would be a high compliment to pay any bass singer.

Here We Are Again

Glory To God in the Highest – I really like the change they’ve made to the second verse of this song. The trade-off between Owens and lead singer Devin McGlamery is something I don’t believe I’ve heard utilized in any other rendition of this song, and while I’m sure the bass could carry the verse all the way through as it was originally done with Tim Duncan, the change of vocals make it unique to this lineup.

And finally, on a completely unrelated note, here’s a video of the Melody Boys in one of their best lineups singing a pretty difficult song to pull off (and singing it well!):

  1. The change to Glory to God in the Highest is newer, but they’ve done it at least since last Christmas season. When Tim Duncan was still with the group, he and Doug Anderson did the trade-off.

    I’m still trying to decide which I like better.

    Ernie Haase,
    I LOVE your music! I have bought some of your songs off of iTunes. I have your “Get Away Jordan” DVD and I love it! I have always wanted to see you live. I haven’t gotten to though. I wish I could have seen you live when you still had Ryan and Tim, but unfortunatly that did not happen.

    Oh! I’m listening to your music now actually!
