"The heartfelt lyrics and powerful vocals of Ken Block is a true example Sister Hazel does not rest on its platinum laurels, but, rather, the band continues to push the bar higher and they succeed once again with their latest release, Fire. The new EP is a 'must have' for all Hazelnuts or any music fan who enjoys alternative rock with a southern/bluesy edge to it."Ed Zagorski, Watertown Daily Times
"There is a deep emotional penetration that Sister Hazel brings with their latest release 'Fire.' Including the lyrics, "The past is just an empty glass that I won't drink from anymore," "Like a melody stuck in your memory, it just keeps growing stronger," and "It isn't always written in the stars; sometimes it's written on the back of old guitars." This album introduces a new country dimension to the sound of Sister Hazel and reminds it's audience of the importance of music and love in our lives.” Mark Leon, Charleston Daily "Sister Hazel does it again with their latest album, Fire. Their albums are always top notch, but this one is one of the best we've heard in a long time. It just doesn't get any better than this." Stephanie Smith, SC Music Guide “Shining bright with the sweet melodic allure of country music, Sister Hazel's newest release is a feel-good dedication to the rainbow of feelings that love can bring. From the thrilling passion of romantic love ("Here With You") to the inherent power of self-love ("Fire"), Fire wraps listeners up in its radiant heartwarming stories, putting the band's lustrous signature songwriting on full triumphant display.” Erica D'Aurora, Musical Notes Global

About Sister Hazel:
Originating from Gainesville, FL, Sister Hazel is comprised of five gifted, seasoned musicians whose well-spring of natural talent has been called "one of the Top 100 Most Influential Independent Performers of the last 15 years" by Performing Songwriter Magazine. Song "All for You," topped the adult alternative charts during the summer of 1997 and the success propelled their album to platinum status. In their first showing on the country music charts they made a strong debut with Lighter In The Dark at #4 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart, #6 on Billboard’s Independent Albums chart, #30 on Billboard's Top Current Albums chart and #79 on the Billboard 200 album chart. The band landed on Billboard’s Top Country Albums Chart again in 2016 with Unplugged From Daryl's House Club at #75. In February 2018, Water, Volume I of a collectible compilation series titled, “Elements,” hit the Billboard Country Albums chart at #9 and at #2 on Billboard’s Independent Albums chart along with making their debut on the most revered stage in country music, the Grand Ole Opry. Volume II of Elements titled Wind debuted at #1 on iTunes in September 2018 and at #11 on Billboard Independent Chart, #16 on Billboard Americana/Folk Chart, and #5 on Billboard's Country Album Sales chart. Living up to their fan-centered reputation, the band was a pioneer in the themed cruise industry by co-founding "The Rock Boat" and annually hosts events like the “Hazelnut Hang,” and "Camp Hazelnut" that focuses on creating unique experiences and interacting with the fans. Sister Hazel has been equally attentive to connecting with their audience through social media having amassed over a million social followers.
