After years of chance encounters, near misunderstandings and missed opportunities, Alberta-raised, Toronto based Terra Hazelton and Toronto native Sophia Perlman, best friends and both jazz singers by trade, discovered a mutual love for country, folk and singer-songwriter music, and an uncanny “who’s singing now?” vocal blend. Since the band’s Christmas baptism by blizzard, PerlHaze has been studying the songwriters who inspire them, learning to play (at press time) six instruments between them, and writing their own original music. Their first music video, Never Can, filmed live in Toronto by the wonderful team of You+Me creative, is available on their website, www.perlhaze.com.
This August, this powerhouse duo will be hitting the road for an intense five-week bootcamp tour as they prepare to record their debut album this fall. To share with the new friends they hope to make on the road, they are releasing a very special sneak preview featuring six of their original songs. Pleased To Meet You will be available for download at www.perlhaze.bandcamp.com beginning Friday, July 18, and the proceeds will make sure that these intrepid pals are able to stay safe, dry and fed on their adventure.
Alberta will have six chances to meet PerlHaze before they disappear into the wilds of the BC interior!
