The vocal interplay between Krebs and Bleyle set Hazel apart from the other Northwestern bands of the time, adding a slightly more textured feel to their lovely guitar crunch. Not entirely averse to pop melodies, Hazel nevertheless balanced these with some delightful noise-making and melancholic moping. In their heyday Hazel used to tour with other local Portland bands Pond, Crackerbash, Sprinkler and Heatmiser which featured early Elliott Smith. 2) HAZEL was formed in 2003 by a Polish singer and songwriter - Joan Wisniewka /aka Hazel/. She composes, produces, programmes and performes her songs as well as she writes lyrics, plays guitar and piano/keyboards. Her self-titled “Beauty Loves Aggression” CD is a demo recorded at her home studio in Warsaw, Poland.

Many bands and artists such as: Nine Inch Nails, Jeff Buckley, Graeme Revell, Marilyn Manson, Tool, A perfect Circle, Hole, Jane Siberry, Crash Test Dummies have contributed to the sound and form of Hazel’s music and have been a great source of inspiration for many years. 3) This Hazel started making music on the C64 around 1989.
