Win Sister Hazel's New CD 'Release'!
Sister Hazel, the Gainesville, Florida, rock five-piece, have just released their new studio album, “Release,” this past August 18, 2009 on Rock Ridge Music.
The album, which is their seventh disc of original material, boasts twelve tracks and came together through a unique process for a studio album of original material by the band – one that worked for them in the past: each band member wrote and brought several songs into the mix and then saw the songs all the way through – from writing to recording to producing. Each member ended up with at least two of his own tunes among the disc's twelve tracks, with Drew Copeland (guitars, vocals) and Ryan Newell (guitars) both nabbing three cuts.
“Everyone had written their songs and said, ‘These are the ones I believe in,’” says bassist Jett Beres. “Those were the songs we recorded and put on the album.” “Because of the way we completed this album,” adds lead singer Ken Block, “we were able to tap into a lot of different things sonically, vibe-wise, and thematically.”
Copeland concurs: “Ken has always been our main songwriter. It was nice this go-around to take this off of his back, because all five of us have grown as writers, and we were able to really contribute on the songwriting front. It really makes a diverse record.”
If you would like to win a copy of this new CD just answer this easy question: The guys from Sister Hazel wanted to have a name that meant something, and as they knew of an African-American lady that ran "Sister Hazel's Rescue Mission," well, the rest is history. But in which city and state was this Rescue Mission?!
