Angie Haze Project CD RELEASE PARTY!!
The Angie Haze Project releases debut album: “Heat to Cold”
The Angie Haze Project, a gypsy/cabaret/folk band formed in Akron, OH releases their debut
album entitled, “Heat to Cold”, this May! The Angie Haze Project is comprised of drummer, Timothy
Ellinger with his dynamic and syncopated worldly jazz beats and percussion; upright bassist, Hoseff
Garcia who delivers a Spanish flavor of melodic bass lines; and finally eclectic singer-songwriter,
pianist, guitarist, Angie Haze, with her bells around one ankle, and handmade tambourine shoe on the
The group made a great impression when opening for Grammy nominated music producer, David
Mayfield (The David Mayfield Parade), resulting in his participation on the album. They were invited to
Mayfield’s studio, “The Tiger Spa”, in Nashville, TN where Mayfield co-produced and mixed “Heat to
Cold”. Mayfield was also featured, singing harmony vocals, on two of the tracks on the album.
Producer, singer and songwriter, Angie Haze has featured guest vocalists Jen Maurer and Leigh Ann Wise
from the popular Northeast Ohio, Zydeco band, Mo’Mojo on the last track, entitled “We Will Lead”.
Cellist, Sam Kristoff from local Indie/folk band, The Speedbumps, was also featured on all 10 tracks.
“Heat to Cold”, both lyrically and musically starts off with a more seductive, passionate, and
then playful mood. By track #4, it begins to tug on the heart strings with one of Haze’s ballads. Soon
after, the songs become more edgy transitioning into a sassy sound with convicting lyrics leaving
listeners with goosebumps. Other instrumentation on the album includes mandolin and accordion
performed by Angie Haze; flute performed by Haze’s cousin, Christina Colletti; clarinet and cello
performed by Sam Kristoff and tenor banjo performed by Christian Lee Hutson. Although cohesive in
instrumentation, “Heat to Cold” showcases what diverse and worldly styles The Angie Haze Project has
to offer; a sound “so addicting you just can’t get enough!”
The Angie Haze Project will hold a CD release show on May 24th @ at Jilly’s Music Room in
Akron, OH. They will perform from 10 p.m. to midnight. Doors open at 5 p.m. Opening the show at
7:30 p.m. will be the popular and talented, female fronted band, Shivering Timbers.
