Sister Hazel is an alternative rock band from Gainesville, Florida, whose style also blends elements of folk rock, pop, classic rock 'n' roll and southern rock.
Sister Hazel’s creative train just keeps rolling. Last year’s well-received “Release” reached the band’s highestever spot (#37) on the Billboard Album Charts, topping even their platinum disc “Somewhere More Familiar,”and they are keeping the momentum going with “Heartland Highway” (Oct. 12, 2010, Rock Ridge Music), marking the band’s quickest album-to-album turnaround in their 15-plus-year career.
The band still hits the road regularly, doing around 100 dates annually, but they also find other avenues to maintain close ties to their fans. “The only way we can keep doing what we are doing is having our fans continue to connect and support us,” proclaims Copeland.
After all their years together, the band is feeling like they’re reaching new milestones with “HeartlandHighway.” “We are all in groove. We have all things rolling along,” asserts Block, with Newell seconding that emotion: “I feel like we are stepping into our heyday.”
