Sister Hazel November 16th, 2014
Sister Hazel is living the dream.
In the 15+ years that they have been recording and performing as a band, they have accomplished something that for most artists is only a dream: they have built a career with a solid foundation, seemingly impenetrable by the shifting sands of the record industry and the economy. And for much of the last decade, Sister Hazel has built an empire of ‘Hazelnuts’ through savvy marketing, hard work and plain-old, undeniable talent. Additionally, true to its innovative spirit, Sister Hazel is responsible for the creation of two annual events that serve as their own personal ‘fan fest’ opportunities, both of which offer them an unprecedented chance to commune with their dedicated followers.
It’s not a secret that they have built their career success and national name recognition through their chart-topping hits, countless national media appearances, relentless touring and the release of eight full-length albums. Originating from Gainesville, FL, Sister Hazel is comprised of five gifted, seasoned musicians whose well-spring of natural talent has been called “one of the Top 100 Most Influential Independent Performers of the last 15 years” by Performing Songwriter Magazine.
Commercial pursuits aside, at the heart of this band is their desire to do good work. The band itself is named after a now-famous nun from the Gainesville area who has dedicated her life to making a difference in the lives of her fellow humans. Sister Hazel the band is true to their namesake, having taken on two major charitable projects with Feed The Children and Lyrics For Life.
The dream for all musicians is to find a way to use their gifts to support themselves and their families at the same time they are enriching the lives of others. For Sister Hazel, it’s an honor to be living that dream every day.
