I have been so impressed with lead singer Ken Block's dedication to their fans. Several weeks ago, he responded to one of my music posts and today he showed me some love on the Sister Hazel message board by linking my blog post from yesterday. How cool is that? Very cool, my friends. Very cool, indeed.
If you've never listened to their music, do yourself a favor and check 'em out. They're kind of an eclectic blend of alternative, folk and southern rock. Ken's voice is refreshingly unique - it will pull you in and make you crave more. I can literally go days without listening to anything but Sister Hazel or Ken's solo album (which is also fantastic, by the way.) And the lyrics... don't get me started on the lyrics - we'd be here all day! Let me just say I know that there's at least one song you can relate to. The words speak timeless truths, offer bits of inspiration and often tell magnificent stories. You know you're a fan when you can find a song lyric to fit nearly every situation. Or when you find yourself saying, "Oh... that reminds me of this Sister Hazel song..."
So, stop putting it off. Start your Sister Hazel education today. Seriously - start here. Then come back and tell me how much you loved it.
P.S. If you live down here in lower Alabama like me, they're going to be performing at Huntingdon College in Montgomery tomorrow night. I won't be able to make it, but you should definitely go support them. I saw them last year in Troy and they were amazing. :)
