Chris Haze is an acoustic singer/songwriter from Galway, Ireland.

As well as being named a Hot For 2014 artist last year by the notorious Irish music magazine Hot Press Magazine, he was also nominated by Hot Press to win the readers award for Most Promising Artist, up against artists like Hozier. And was again nominated in 2015.

He has played with some big names in the music industry, having toured around Ireland with the recently established Irish group Original Rudeboys in December 2013, playing sold out gigs in The Olympia Theatre and The Academy Dublin. He has also supported international acts such as American Hip Hop artist Coolio and Australian sensation Sheppard.

Chris made waves in 2015 with the release of a new EP Thoughts To Words last March, where his single Don’t Wanna Fall Asleep achieved major national and regional airplay in Ireland. Since 
then he has released another acclaimed Single and EP called On The Road which has also gained national exposure through amazing media and radio support since the release in June.

Chris also just played his first major Irish festival last summer, on the main stage of Indiependence Festival.

Most recently Chris Haze released the single Let Us Be Heroes, which has gained him airplay all over Ireland and has gone on to give him his first major UK radio station debut on Radio X.

Chris has received yet another nomination earlier this year with Let Us Be Heroes being nominated for “Best Track” in the Hot Press Readers Poll 2016.

What motivates you?

Chris: My goal is to be one of the most successful musicians of all time! I want to travel the world and play my music to as many people in the world as possible.

When my music helps my fans through tough times or if they relate to a situation I’m talking about in a song, that’s a very special thing.

My fans make it worth every minute and hour of time put into getting a song or video right!

You’ve already achieved pretty big goals… 

I have been lucky over the last few years but I’ve also worked hard to get where I am right now! I am very proud of my career and what I have achieved :-)
