Happy New Year! onwards and upwards

Happy New Year! and what a year it was, not a bad start!!

Last week “And You Know” was named “BBC Introducing track of the week” on Kate Justice’s show. Kate played “And You Know” every day on her BBC show.
You can still listen on the BBC website or hear my favourite clip here where Kate said on Thursday’s show “It’s time to play our delicious BBC Introducing Track of the week. It’s been Such a privilege to play this every day, I love it! Bren Haze, And You Know.”

In 2014: I launched my debut album “Set Free” in March which is still selling well
Played 35+ gigs from April
(footage below from my last gig of 2014)

Had lots of national radio play/interviews, extra tracks launched November
which were also played on a few stations several times.
I made it through to the semi finals at the Birmingham NEC of UK Open Mic!
Gained 1.5k FaceBook supporters, 46k visits in just 2 months on Fandalism! made new friends, supporters and some great BBC reviews (one below):

“The Amazing talent Bren haze. The Wiltshire ex-pat has been very busy lately wooing a whole new bunch of fans with great new numbers
like “Colours” and “To the moon and back”.
“It’s totally heart warming to see such a unique talent play a complete set of original numbers and still keep a fickle audience entertained. definitely the mark of quality.”
Andy O’Hare BBC

So my plans for 2015!
More tracks will be released/recorded (new songs in the making), new videos and of course gigs!

A few festival slots have already been secured (details to follow) plus a few special “Evening with Bren” and showcase gigs.
I will be doing a few things up North, in Bristol, Wales, Reading area and possibly something in South UK.
I am also looking at a road trip to Austria/Germany with a special gig or two.

And finally the all important update on my hand!
I’m patiently waiting for x-mas scan results/decisions/strategy from the top Doc in London, however it’s looking positive and feels better to play with painkillers, Kinesiology tape &custom made silver support (as seen at my last gig in December supporting Mick Ralphs of Bad Company/Mott The Hoople).
Worse case scenario I’ll be gigging again May/June onwards.

Thank you to one of my supporters for the below footage! :)
