Oliver Hazard is an indie-folk band from Waterville, Ohio. Their story is the digital age’s version of classic band myth-making. One member of the band returned to Ohio after leading camping trips in california and decided to make an album with two of his childhood friends, a door-to-door salesman and a construction worker. They won a Facebook raffle to record their debut album, 34 N. River, named by The Fader as a folk-pop masterpiece. The band played major festivals shortly after, including Bonnaroo, Mountain Jam, and Americanafest.
With a soulful voice and brilliantly insightful lyrics, singer-songwriter Alison Albrecht is blazing new trails in music. Her unique blend of pop and soul, plus a touch of folk, offers a wide audience appeal that lives not too far from the sound of Sara Barilles or Sheryl Crow. Alison is completely in her element onstage and has been performing across the state of Michigan since the tender age of nine years old. She has enchanted crowds as large as 30,000, singing the national anthem at Comerica Park, opened for the Steve Miller Band at Freedom Hill, and connected with audiences at renowned listening rooms such as 20 Front Street in Lake Orion and the Ark in Ann Arbor. Alison was the first-ever Michigan State Fair Superstar Contest Winner, in 2014. Her 2015 debut EP, produced by Grammy-winning producer Chuck Alkazian, earned her a Detroit Music Award People’s Choice Awardnomination and was named the Number One Local EP Release of the year by host John Bommarito of Ann Arbor’s 107.1 FM. Now 19 and a sophomore at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, Alison is enthusiastic and driven, poised to continue pursuing her music career with a passion for crafting newsongs, and having a positive impact on others, and the world.
