UK / RSA Rock Singer-Songwriter Brothers Gareth & Mark Haze Release Special Colab Single ‘Home’
‘Home’ is the first single from London, UK-based Singer-Songwriter Gareth Haze and features his brother, South African-based Singer-Songwriter Mark Haze. This Acoustic Folk Rock ballad talks about coming home to someone you love even when the chaos of life and the world around us seemingly confuses and consumes us. Also known by many as the former drummer for his brother Mark Haze, Gareth moved to the UK in 2017 where he decided to take on the challenge of performing solo in unfamiliar territory. This experience has inspired the songs for his forthcoming album ‘Stranger in a Strange Land’. Gareth recently spent time back in South Africa after his and Mark’s father passed away. During the visit, the two brothers couldn’t resist working on music together, resulting in Mark featuring on ‘Home’, as well as co-producing the track with Gareth. They have also started work on the rest of the album, which they will be co-producing across continents to create something truly special.

About Gareth Haze
Gareth Haze is a multi-instrumentalist Singer-Songwriter playing guitar, drums, piano, marimba, xylophone, timpani, and percussion. He comes from a family where music was always appreciated and encouraged, and he likes to keep it simple, performing a blend of Folk, Rock, Pop, and Blues. His music is primarily acoustic-based but is not opposed to including electric guitars, drums, bass, and anything else his songs need. He really loves the production style of bands like The Beatles and Queen and loves the lyrical style of artists like Frank Turner and Dashboard Confessional … poetic, but honest and relatable. Artists like Johnny Cash and Bob Dylan also strong influence on him, as they were able to take simple songs and make them deep and impactful.
Being a fan of Rock and Punk music, he likes to apply a DIY Punk ethos to what he does on stage, trying to find a balance between playing to the best of his ability, but also letting go and just pushing all his feelings out through music to the audience. He feels that even though he would love to play all the right notes all the time, he would rather play a wrong note with conviction than play it perfectly and not give it his all.
