Biography

The name Tony Hazzard might not sound familiar, but the British singer/songwriter has written hits for everybody in the Hollies, Manfred Mann, and Herman’s Hermits to Gene Pitney and Andy Williams. Blessed and elevated in Liverpool, Hazzard found your guitar and ukulele at a age group. A formidable pupil, he were able to lose out on the Merseybeat skiffle picture that engulfed the spot in the first ’60s, focusing rather on his education at Durham School. Music shortly got the very best of him, though, and by way of a shared friend he was presented to BBC tale editor Tony Garnett. Garnett persuaded Hazzard to go to London to pursue his songwriting ambitions, information which was heeded with the youthful musician. He agreed upon with music publisher/Manfred Mann supervisor Gerry Bron, who place him on the retainer. Hits implemented for numerous groupings, and Hazzard started work on an archive of his very own. While Tony Hazzard Sings premiered in 1969 to little if any fanfare, his sophomore work (Loudwater Home) helped create the artist being a potential gentle rock superstar. Lots of the music artists who played over the record (Chris Spedding, Mike Batt, and B.J. Cole) had been touring with Elton John at that time, and Hazzard shortly found himself offering support vocals on John’s Tumbleweed Connection and Honky Chateau. His third and last recording, the country-tinged Was That Alright After that, found its way to 1973, but didn’t generate much general public support. In 2005, both Loudwater Home and Was That Alright After that, alongside some rarities and unissued outtakes, had been remastered and put together for the two-disc Proceed North: The Bronze Anthology. Hazzard proceeds to create music at his house in Cornwall, and programs to release a fresh record in the near future.
