Hazle Weatherfield

Named for the fictional female detective conjured up by Holden Caulfield’s younger sister in The Catcher in the Rye, Hazle Weatherfield makes raw but proficient Indie Rock with a rootsy undercurrent, putting the band in the same league as Indie artists like The Weakerthans, Catfish Haven, Bright Eyes and Okkervil River. At the band’s core is the songwriting of singer/guitarist Eric Hand, who crafts tight, concise and emotive songs that are strongly melodic but not in a predictable way. The rhythm section of Brian (bass) and Kevin (drums) McNamee perfectly compliments Hand’s ragged, instinctive guitar playing, giving the songs’ much of their dynamic presence, going from gentler mid-tempo balladry to amped-up stompers (often in the course of a single song).
