// The Hazelman Brothers
The Hazelman Brothers are Chris, Mick and Stu Hazelman. It must be something in the blood that produces stunning 3-part harmonies combined with 3-part guitar layering, a stomp box - and a rare songwriting craft that inspires comparisons to Crosby Stills and Nash, Josh Pyke, Kings of Convenience and Little River Band.
