Hazlett – Everybody Hates Me

“In his recent release, "Hazlett" shares his inner thoughts with sincerety and full creativity. A sentimental single with Indie influences, based on lyrics which many of us have had in mind. Also decorated with acoustic guitar chords, ideal for every sensitive ear!”



Hazlett’s brand of ballroom indie folk and vast nostalgia will fill your heart but let you cry. Born in Australia, bloomed in Sweden, this modern-day nomad has been earning a place in punters' hearts with his live appearances and fondness of an intriguing story. From his stunning 2017 debut EP Honey, Where Is My Home to the dream-induced 2020 follow-up Thundering Hopes, Hazlett has an affinity for dancing the line of “my life is a mess” to “everything happens for a reason” and making you feel a part of it all. This has led to him being featured in key tastemaker press such as NME, Clash, The Line of Best Fit, Atwood, Music Feeds to name just a few. With the rising musician currently working on more brand-new material for his upcoming full-length album debut with Nettwerk, it’s clear Hazlett is weaving his way to something bigger.

About Hazlett:

After ghostwriting and playing in various rhythm sections for most of his formative years, the shy guy from Brisbane found a creative home in the farthest of places, Sweden. Hazlett packed up his things and now resides in Stockholm where his solo project was founded with the help of close friend and producer Freddy Alexander. Writing with his gut and heart like a troubadour of old and combining it with the modern sonic landscape that dances in his head things are blooming in his new-found home in the Northern Hemisphere. Hazlett’s has so far released two well received EPs, toured across Europe, Australia and grew a close-knit family of people he trusts in his adopted home. “As much as Hazlett is me, I think anything good in life is better when you let people in”. With that team spirit in mind, they all made the decision at the start of the pandemic in 2020 to pause everything, bunker down and work on Hazlett’s first full-length album which is set to be released on his new label home Nettwerk.
