I shot the band Hazden at an Underground show in December 2012. As a music fan, I enjoyed their set – they say they’ve fused British rock and J-rock to create their own style. As a photographer, the band stood out for me because Faye Wan, their lead singer, has such a beautiful and distinctive look.
The band has just released a new 6 song EP titled Once. (The link is to the digital version available on iTunes.) They’ve been around since 2007 but I believe this is their first CD. The songs are all original compositions by the band, sung in English and Cantonese.
I received an autographed copy in the mail this week:
They sent it to me because they used some of my photos from that gig in the nicely designed booklet that accompanies the CD. Honestly, I would have been happy enough with the credit they gave me in the booklet. The autographed CD is a nice bonus!
They’ve got a CD release party coming up in Hong Kong next month.
It’s July 19th at the Fringe Club. They’ve lined up two opening acts and I think it’s going to be a great night for independent Hong Kong music. You can find out all the details on the event page on Facebook.
