Quotes/Feedback on Bren’s Music:

“Now for something completely different: the guitar talent that is Bren Haze. Bren, one of the nicest musicians I have ever met. Bren performs alone, mixing up acoustic and electric lead guitar effortlessly in his inspiring songs. Bren’s style fits perfectly with the festival season and this man has real talent. Bren has a new album “Step Out Of The Haze” Well worth checking out.”

“It’s been such a privilege to play this every day, I love it! Bren Haze, And You Know.”
BBC Track of the week “And You Know ” played daily w/c 5th Jan 2015.
Kate Justice – BBC Hereford & Worcester Presenter

“The Amazing talent Bren haze. This chap has a stunning unique solo set and I’m sure it wont be long before he attracts some major attention” “He’s got a great stage presence” “watch out world!”
Andy O’Hare – BBC Artist Reviewer

“A versatile and extremely talented performer with true rock & roll swagger, and an army of dedicated female fans (as his set at Down On The Farm demonstrated), but a thoroughly decent chap as well.”
John Hales – Co-Organiser of Down On The Farm Festival

“Bren is equally at home firing off high octane rock riffs as he is following delicate acoustic lines. And it is those twin abilities that very much inform this new album. Set Free is a collection of songs that manage to blend subtlety with drive, power with restraint, soaring electric playing with gently picked acoustics. Although the full on rock and roll power plays largely take a back seat to cleverer arrangements, this is no folksy troubadour, the songs are fleshed out with the usual range of contemporary band sounds and when the foot needs to go on the pedal, Haze is just the man for the job.”
Dave Franklin – Wiltshire Music Journalist

“All Brendan Haze’s songs are a mix of exciting, on the edge of danger rock guitar mixed with softer storytelling, They are musical poems of hope and new beginnings through adversity or sorrow.”
Flicky Harrison – Media Journalist / Swindon Newspaper

“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”
Andrew Marston – Host of BBC Introducing Hereford & Worcester

“A tad of James Taylor in vocals and song writing with Richie sambora-esque guitar and undertones of Aerosmith”
Shirley Fraiser
