Sister Hazel are an American rock band hailing from Gainesville, Florida, US, with a penchant for penning upbeat, highly melodic tunes with their distinctive southern rock tone.
The band formed in Gainesville in 1993, naming themselves Sister Hazel after a local missionary who ran a homeless shelter, coming together through all being established on the local scene. The five piece consists of Ken Block (guitarist.vocals), Andrew Copeland (guitarist/vocals), Ryan Newell (Lead guitarist), Jeff Beres (bassist) and Mark Trojanowski (drums).
They recorded their self-titled debut album in 1994 on Croakin' Poets, which was followed by their second in 1997, "…Somewhere More Familiar" which went on to sell 30,000 copies in its initial pressing. This drew the attention of major label, Universal Records, who signed the band and re-released the record. Their single "All For You" reached number 11 in the Billboard Hot 100, being a high point of their career.
Their third album was released in 2000, "Fortress" which featured the singles "Champagne High" and "Change Your Mind" which achieved moderate success. However, the band split from Universal three years later, moving to the Sixthman Label to release their fourth album, "Chasing Daylight" alongside a live album and DVD.
The band continued to release a steady stream of records, including a live acoustic album in 2008, titled "Before the Amplifiers, Live Acoustic." Their music has been used on several soundtracks, including "The Wedding Planner," "Bedazzled" and "10 Things I Hate About You."
