BandPopRock

Imagine a female fronted Coldplay, a scream to a whisper, then ramping back up to a closing hurricane of rock-n-roll emotion. The songs are hard hitting and truthful. The musicianship is top notch and the show is a roller coaster and when it's done you want another ride...

Biography

In support of her independent CD release The Ladder, pop singer-songwriter Sara Haze started the year out with performances in Toronto at Canadian Music Week (CMW) that also led to a booking at Berlin's POPKOMM fest in October 2008. At CMW she was joined on stage by Grammy® Award winning producer/songwriter Glen Ballard (Alanis Morissette, No Doubt , Dave Matthews). In July 2008 Troy Blakely, Senior Vice President and Managing Partner of APA in Los Angeles, signed Haze who will be represented by the company's Concert Touring Department, for national bookings.

The Ladder tour has also included several gigs in Nashville, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Santa Barbara, New York and Texas with an extra stop at the New York / CMJ offices for an acoustic showcase, and Houston for the Microsoft World Partners Convention at the Astrodome. Sara has also Headlined such premier Southern California concert clubs as the Coach House in San Juan Capistrano and The Key Club in Hollywood. College Concerts up and down the California coast are currently being being booked.

In live performance, Haze continues to attract fans and industry alike with her powerful voice and strong stage presence, whether fronting a high energy band that includes Lisa Lui on electric violin, or playing solo at her piano.

ASCAP has hosted successful showcases for Haze in Los Angeles, New York and Nashville that has led to her to work with top hit songwriters. In addition, Haze is working with producer/guitarist Eric Fraley on her co-write with Glen Ballard entitled "Tattooed On Me," slated as a single release on iTunes later this year.

Sara Haze had already amassed a catalogue of songs featured in TV and film by the time she signed with PEN Music Group, Inc. (penmusic.com) for publishing and licensing representation. PEN's Michael Eames introduced her to Heather Holley and Rob Hoffman of Elicit Music (Christina Aguilera, Quincy Jones, Sheryl Crow) and Haze recorded three masters with them that ended up on The Ladder. Eames is currently shopping Haze's new material for additional placements in television and film. Critics say 2009 looks to be her "breakout year."

Beautiful Day

Written By: SARA HAZE/JAMES SLATER

ITS A BEAUTIFUL DAY
(S. HAZE & J. SLATER)

SATURDAY IS THE SMILE ON MONA LISA’S FACE
A LITTLE SPARE CHANGE GIVEN TO THE STRANGER ON THE CORNER
A PILE OF LEAVES DEEP ENOUGH FOR MY SOUL TO JUMP INTO
AND ALL MY DOUBTS FALL AWAY
AND LEAD ME HERE TO SAY

ITS A BEAUTIFUL DAY
SUMMER SONGS OUTSIDE MY WINDOW PANE
AND I DONT NEED MY UMBRELLA
I’VE ALREADY BEEN THROUGH THE RAIN
I CAN FEEL THE SUNSHINE ON MY FACE
NOT A CLOUD IN MY PERSONAL SKY
ITS A BEAUTIFUL DAY

CHANGE THE WORLD YOU KNOW I WOULD IF I COULD
BUT ALL I GOT ARE MY BLUE JEANS AND MY BLACK T SHIRT
AND THAT’S JUST FINE CUZ EVERYDAY YOU KNOW I TRY
TO MAKE ART NOT WAR
LET LOVE REIGN
AND LEAD THE WORLD TO SAY

ITS A BEAUTIFUL DAY
SUMMER SONGS OUTSIDE MY WINDOW PANE
AND I DONT NEED MY UMBRELLA
I’VE ALREADY BEEN THROUGH THE RAIN
I CAN FEEL THE SUNSHINE ON MY FACE
NOT A CLOUD IN MY PERSONAL SKY
ITS A BEAUTIFUL DAY
THE LIGHT WILL SHINE
IN A PERFECT SKY
THE MORNING SUN
WILL BE YOURS AND MINE
A SEA OF PEACE
WILL WASH OVER ME
AND I’LL HOLD MY BREATH AND PRAY

BIG LIE

Written By: HAZE/ATKINSON/WOECKENER

THE BIG LIE

I HAVE A SECRET
IT’S HAUNTING ME
SOMETIMES I WANNA TELL YOU
I’M NOT WHAT I SEEM
IT BREAKS MY HEART
WHEN I LOOK IN YOUR EYES
YOU SEE ME SMILE
BUT I’M ALONE INSIDE

HAPPINESS DEPENDS ON
THE SILENCE I KEEP
I KNOW THAT I SHOULD TELL YOU
BUT CAN’T BRING MYSELF TO SPEAK
IM SO DISGUISED
I DON’T KNOW WHAT’S TRUE
IT KILLS ME WHEN I SEE WHAT IT DOES TO YOU

IT’S A BIG BIG LIE
YOU’RE ABOUT TO SEE THROUGH
AND I DON’T WHY
IT’S ALL I CAN DO
IT’S A BIG BIG LIE
I’M HIDING FROM YOU
I DON’T LOVE MYSELF
SO HOW CAN I LOVE YOU

I TOSS AND TURN
YEAH I CAN’T SLEEP
WHY AM I SO LONELY
YOU’RE RIGHT NEXT TO ME
IT’S BUILDING UP INSIDE ME
I CAN HARDLY BREATH
YOU’RE LYING THERE SO PEACEFUL
I JUST WANNA SCREAM

IT’S A BIG BIG LIE
YOU’RE ABOUT TO SEE THROUGH
AND I DON’T WHY
IT’S ALL I CAN DO
IT’S A BIG BIG LIE
I’M HIDING FROM YOU
I DON’T LOVE MYSELF
SO HOW CAN I LOVE YOU
HOW CAN I LOVE YOU

I KEEP THINKING THAT YOU’RE GONNA HEAR IT
IN THE WORDS THAT I DON’T SAY
SOMEONE TELL ME HOW LONG OH HOW LONG
CAN I LIVE MY LIFE THIS WAY

YOU’RE ABOUT TO SEE THROUGH
I DON’T KNOW WHY
BUT ALL I CAN DO
IS LIE
I DON’T KNOW WHY
IT’S ALL I CAN DO
IT’S A BIG BIG LIE
I’M HIDING FROM YOU
I DON’T LOVE MYSELF YET
SO HOW CAN I LOVE YOU
HOW CAN I LOVE YOU
HOW CAN I LOVE YOU

THE BORDER

Written By: SARA HAZE/EB FRALEY

“THE BORDER”

GOTTA GET AWAY FROM THE BORDER
THERE’S TOO MANY MEMORIES HERE
AND ALL THE THINGS THAT I USED TO LOVE
BECAME EVERYTHING I FEAR
AND I WANNA RECOGNIZE
BUT I JUST DON’T THINK IT’S YOU
CUZ EVERY TIME I LOOK INTO YOUR EYES
I SWEAR I CAN SEE RIGHT THROUGH

SO I RUN AND I RUN
JUST TO FIND I’M STANDING STILL
CUZ I’M TRYING TO MOVE
WITHOUT BREAKING ANY SHELLS
AND I’M FROZEN IN THIS STATE
I’M TRYING NOT TO CROSS THE LINE
BUT I GUESS IT’S JUST A MATTER OF TIME
TILL I CROSS THE BORDER LINE

THE WATER TASTES LIKE POISON
THE AIR’S SO HARD TO BREATHE
AND THE SKIN I’M IN IS STARTING TO DRIVE ME CRAZY
I GOTTA GET AWAY FROM ME

SO I RUN AND I RUN
JUST TO FIND I’M STANDING STILL
CUZ I’M TRYING TO MOVE
WITHOUT BREAKING ANY SHELLS
AND I’M FROZEN IN THIS STATE
I’M TRYING NOT TO CROSS THE LINE
BUT I GUESS IT’S JUST A MATTER OF TIME

IT’S A MATTER OF TIME
TILL I CAN FINALLY BREATHE
GO WHERE EVER MY HEART LEADS
GET TO KNOW MYSELF AGAIN
LEARN TO BE MY OWN BEST FRIEND
LIFT THIS WEIGHT UP OFF MY SHOULDERS
AND FINALLY BE FREE

BUT I RUN AND I RUN
TO FIND I’M STANDING STILL
CUZ I’M TRYING TO MOVE
WITHOUT BREAKING ANY SHELLS
AND I’M FROZEN IN THIS STATE
TRYING NOT TO CROSS THE LINE

SO I RUN AND I RUN
TO FIND IM STANDING STILL
I’M TRYING TO MOVE
WITHOUT BREAKING ANY SHELLS
AND I’M FROZEN IN THIS STATE
TRYING NOT TO CROSS THE LINE
BUT I GUESS IT’S JUST A MATTER OF TIME
IT’S JUST MATTER OF TIME
TILL I CROSS THE BORDER LINE
IT’S JUST A MATTER OF TIME
