Nashville, TN (December 28, 2009) -- Ernie Haas & Signature Sound announced today the departure of Ryan Seaton as lead singer of the popular quartet.
Devin McGlamery, from southern gospel’s Grammy-nominated Karen Peck & New River, is joining EHSS as new lead singer. Devin has been lead/tenor for Karen Peck & New River for the last five years, following a five-year career with the Dixie Melody Boys. Devin will debut with EHSS in Cincinnati, Ohio at their first "Dream On" concert.
“To say I’m excited is an understatement,” said Devin. “Ernie and I have been great friends for years. I’ve always had a lot of admiration for him as a singer and as a person, and he has always encouraged me. Words cannot express how wonderful I feel about this opportunity for my career and my family.”
A native of Valdosta, Georgia, Devin is 27 and lives in Kinston, North Carolina, with his wife Karen Ham McGlamery and their children, Karlyn and Preston.
“I want to thank Karen Peck so much for everything over the last five years,” said Devin. "She let southern gospel music get to know the real me, and she let me be who I am. For that and many things, I will always be grateful. I’m really looking forward to the next part of my calling and my journey with Ernie and the group.”
Regarding the change, Ernie Haas said, "I thank God for the opportunity to work with Devin and am grateful to Karen and Susan Peck for their graciousness. Please join me in giving a warm Signature Sound welcome to Devin, and keep Ryan and his dear family in your prayers!"
