Greater Manchester born Hazel, 29, was brought up around the musical influences of her mother and stepfather, both professional musicians for 30+ years. She began singing professionally at the age of 16 and her love of travel and music soon took her overseas with various musical projects. In the short space of 5 years, Hazel was running and performing in a professional internationally touring 5-piece band, Makerfield.
After graduating from Salford University with a first class BA HONS in Music, alongside touring with Makerfield, Hazel moved on to actively work in the recording studio working as a demo vocalist for top-line writers/producers, plus fulfilling live performance contracts in the UK and overseas as a solo performer or lead vocalist for live bands.
Right now, Hazel lives in Asia and gigs at various venues as a solo performer with acoustic guitar performing acoustic versions of pop, soul, and R&B classics. At the root of all her vocal exploits, is Hazel's passion for travel and performing, and she is looking for contracts in Shanghai for 2012.
Other Professional Experience:
In the 5 years that I ran Showband, Makerfield, my role as band leader got me involved in many other areas aside from performing including scheduling/running rehearsals, choreography, managing a team and show production.
I have 6 years experience working in the recording studio, more recently recording on behalf of songwriters with publishing deals presenting their material to some of the UK's top female artistes including, Leona Lewis and Jamelia.
Vocal coaching experience includes 6 months at the Manchester College of Arts and Technology, 18 months at the Debra Lister Dance Academy, 18 months home teaching and 3 months with Essex Music Services.
