Hazah write music for the fun and the joy of the moment, trying to create something honest and a bit nutty in a mad beautiful world.
Their genre has been described as Folktronica – a cross over of electronic dance music and folk/ funk – its very dancey high energy.
Hazah started out as George Beasley and Matt Thelwell, about a dozen instruments and a laptop… Founded in 2003 they launched their career by becoming finalists in the ‘Glastonbury unsigned bands competition’. This led to numerous appearances at the legendary festival which in turn got them on to the UK festie circuit. Since then they have been joined by the slick stylings of Dan Haycocks on guitar and the delightful Trev Pitchford on Percussion.
On stage Hazah mix their own beats, samples and quirky synth riffs with acoustic and electric guitar, bass, flute, Irish pipes, whistles, clarinet, fiddle, banjo and live percussion. This is high-energy Folktronica at its best!
