Bio

The Hazelman Brothers are Chris, Mick and Stu Hazelman. It must be something in the blood that produces stunning 3-part harmonies, combined with complex 3-part guitar layering and a stomp box. The result is a unique blend of melancholy-folk, acoustic-pop and country-fingerpicking with a healthy dose of weird time signatures. Their songwriting harks back to the story-telling troubadours of old, with evocative lyrics sung in unashamedly Australian voices - but their decidedly modern feel is shaped by influences as diverse as Crosby Stills and Nash, Josh Pyke, Opeth and Little River Band. The Hazelman Brothers launched their debut album 'Eyesight Like an Owl' in 2010. You can buy it online at http://www.waterfrontrecords.com/product/77184

a lovely rich recording. Like a slightly creepy sea shanty, without the sea subject matter. Your parents must be happy all their sons are getting along so well! Looking forward to your album.
