Sister Hazel's New EP, Earth, Out Today!
Final Installment in Four Part Element Series
Band Makes iHeart Radio's "Bobby Bones Show" Debut
"Sister Hazel's latest EP, 'Earth' is exceptional from start to finish. 'Good For You' is sheer bliss. This band gets better with age and experience, and better yet, the songs sound even more powerful live in concert, so all New Yorkers ought to get a ticket for their September 6th show at Sony Hall." Markos Papadatos, Digital Journal
"Each of Sister Hazel's "Elements" EPs have been showcases for songwriting and a band finding its sweet spot, but they've saved their best for the Earth installment. Every song feels specifically tied to the element with "Raising A Rookie" feeling like one of the best songs Sister Hazel has ever recorded and released." Matt Bjorke, Roughstock
“An invitation to reflect, and interspersed with moments of optimism and anticipation, Sister Hazel’s Earth EP combines their distinctive sound with warm, poetic imagery."Amanda Tempel, Mixtape-Escape
Earth, the fourth and final installment of platinum-selling band Sister Hazel’s highly-anticipated compilation series entitled “Elements,” is out TODAY! To celebrate the release of their new EP, the band recently made their iHeart Radio "Bobby Bones Show" debut as well as their fourth appearance on the Grand Ole Opry. A microcosm of new songs espousing hopefulness, chasing your dreams, and dealing with life’s trial and tribulations, Earthsprouts six new standout tracks each showcasing the band’s musicianship, signature harmonies and lyrical genius. The new EP is available to stream and purchase HERE.
Undeniably talented songwriters, each track on Earth was written by Sister Hazel with other notable writers Darius Rucker, Barry Dean, Randy Montana, and more. Earth was co-produced by Ben Jackson and Sister Hazel. “Raising A Rookie,” the inspirational first track (written by noted tunesmiths Darius Rucker, Barry Dean and Sister Hazel’s Andrew Copeland) sets the tone for the EP with its theme of succeeding no matter the obstacles. “Follow The River” delivers a message of following your heart, while the uptempo, “Slow Lightening,” sings about love lighting the way. “Memphis Rain” tells a story of gracefully walking away, while “Good For You,” is a lighthearted tune about stepping up and stepping out. The song, “Elements,” rounds up the EP as it continues to evolve over the past three-themed EP.

“Sister Hazel's new album Earth is truly a testament to their high level of musical talent and originality. While the music industry has continuously altered the genres they have tried to label Sister Hazel with, the band's music has held true to their artistic vision and their fans. The original harmonies of Ken Block and Andrew Copeland still elevate the beauty of songs like the first single on the album "Good for you." Earth is a great bookend to the bands Element EP compilation series." Ben Gordon, 95.5 FM in Jacksonville, FL

About Sister Hazel:
Originating from Gainesville, FL, Sister Hazel is comprised of five gifted, seasoned musicians whose well-spring of natural talent has been called "one of the Top 100 Most Influential Independent Performers of the last 15 years" by Performing Songwriter Magazine. Song "All for You," topped the adult alternative charts during the summer of 1997 and the success propelled their album to platinum status. Since then, the band has become firmly established not only in rock and alternative music, but now in country with four back-to-back Billboard Top Country Albums Chart entries. They have most recently co-produced a cleverly themed EP compilation series entitled “Elements,” that includes a bonus seventh track that continued throughout the series. Living up to their fan-centered reputation, the band was a pioneer in the themed cruise industry by co-founding "The Rock Boat" and annually hosts events like the “Hazelnut Hang,” and "Camp Hazelnut" that focuses on creating unique experiences and interacting with the fans. Sister Hazel has been equally attentive to connecting with their audience through social media having amassed over a million social followers. In addition to the events and touring, the band also gives back with “Lyrics For Life.” Founded by singer Ken Block, the charity unites musicians and celebrities for concerts and auctions to benefit cancer research and patient-care charities.
