Bren’s Debut At Hereford Live

Thanks to all who supported me at the gig and from afar and for all your good luck wishes.

I thought I played well given my time off the radar and did my very best. It was soooo good to hear people cheering and clapping a solo again!
This took me by surprise but in a very good way. Yipee!!

Great crowd at The Jailhouse and I appreciated the warm welcome. I plan on returning soon ;-)

I am itching to play live again and I am actively searching for venues / events that will have me ;)

Weil Lieben & Shining Like The Sun have now both been played on BBC Introducing show!

Andrew Marston at the BBC when talking about Bren said “Bren Haze is an acoustic rock guitarist now based in Hereford back from Austria!”
Bren plays “A mixture of acoustic songs with Slash Pink Floyd-esque solos.” “Wonderful”

Thank you again Andrew and thank you Hereford for inviting me to kick off this great event on the 25th.

 

 

Inside Me – Draft Video & A visit to Puttyfoot!

The wheels are still turning and I have been diligently rehearsing a solo set which features new tracks such as: Snow Globe, Push You Away, Inside Me and favourites such as Set Free, Shining Like The Sun, Step Out Of The Haze, And You Know etc.

I was in South West England recently for my rare haircut visit ;) thanks Jake! Anyway, as I was in that part of the country I decided to stop in at Puttyfoot’s Studio and say hi to my long term dear friends Darren and Lisa.
We had a great catch up and I was very lucky to have a few photos taken by Lisa Coleman in the famous Red Chair.
It was nice to relax, chat, swap news. Below is one of the amazing photo’s Lisa took (click to expand).

Shining Like The Sun played on BBC Radio

Back in the UK and ‘Shining Like The Sun’ was played on Andrew Marston’s show “introducing – Unsigned, undiscovered and under-the-radar music” on  BBC Hereford & Worcester. Coool :)

Thank you Andrew! That made my weekend :)

Bren News and maybe a Debut album in the wings ;)

Well as I’m in England for a while I ended up chatting to long term friend & Producer Nick Beere (Justin Hawkins of The Darkness) about ideas and studio time for some ideas I’ve been mulling over for a while now.

It started off with contemplating dates about laying down 2 specific special tracks and possibly a couple of ideas that I had for various artists/friends for a long time but never actually pursued.

However everyone I spoke to was so excited and keen with such passion and enthusiasm that it gathered its own pace and as such turned into a 12-14 track very diverse debut Bren album  :)

It will be a mix of Acoustic, dirty and light rock tracks, an instrumental with a Massive Attack Teardrop type vocal line, I am also now co-writing a duet song I had as an idea giving a women/man’s perspective type song.
As well as a couple of nice male & female duet/harmony style tracks I’ve been writing.  I have also now dug up 1 or 2 classics that I only had old rough live recordings for of which I will now record with some very special people!

I will reveal the tracks and details as they take shape and the truly talented artists, musicians and inspiring people that I will lucky enough to be working, co-writing, playing and singing with!
AND YES! as requested many times, hehe  :-)  Set Free (below) will be finally recorded properly and on the new album!!

 

So with fire in my heart and the one and only lady by my side! (my dog Nushka! hehe) I now have full on album project to plan, write, record, release and see what that may bring to the live arena :)

I will keep you all posted on any news and if course some cheeky snippets on my Facebook page!.

Thank you for stopping by.
