Hazel Mei

Who are we chatting to and what do you do in the band? Hello, I’m Hazel Mei and I am the chief songwriter, vocalist, acoustic and electric guitarist in the band.
What do you reckon people will say you sound like? I’m not sure. My sound is quite eclectic in many ways and naturally, everyone interprets music differently based on their own tastes and experience.
What do you love about making music? I love how therapeutic music making can be. On another note, I am over the moon with the support and love you give and receive from people you meet within the industry.
What do you hate about the music industry? It’s not so much a hate, but a struggle: to find a balanced lifestyle whilst working towards your goals.
What inspires your music most? Experiences. Every interaction, every moment can inspire a song or a production idea - it’s quite magic.
If you could travel back in time and show one of your musical heroes your stuff, who would it be and why Oh my, there are too many to choose from… my mind keeps coming back to John Lennon though. I listened the The Beatles above all other music when I was growing up. I would just love to chat to him about the way he saw the world.
What can a punter expect from your live show? An evening of life through a rosy lens.

Hazel Mei will release her single ‘Put The Bottle Down’ on Saturday February 24, available everywhere. You can find out more via her website.
