Chaz Hearne and the Dazzlers are an up and coming Rochester folk band that is set to release their new album. The new album titled Intelligence Is Rising, is a mix of beautifully orchestrated banjo tracks with unbelievable backing vocals from Chaz and his pack of Dazzlers! The Dazzlers include but not limited to Rochester’s own Susanna Rose, who in my opinion, is one of Rochester’s best up and coming female vocalists. Also doing backing vocals along with playing violin on the album from Rochester local band Copper Hill is Katie Knudsvig, she is a new face to the scene but very talented young lady. On cello, you have John Delmonico playing those under tone beats that flash me back to old time tunes. Playing bass is Reilly Solomon Taylor-Cook and lets just say his sounds on this album is nothing short of spectacular. Another local familiar face to me on this album is their drummer Hannah Weidner from local bands like The Incantations and the Superty Dupes. She is a spit fire on the drums with the vocals of an angel!
As you can see, this album is compiled of great musicians. What really stood out to me about this album was the fact that the album itself is about love, and every single track has a perfect harmony of people singing! Truly something special, this album is comprised of amazing tracks like “Montana” that feature the entire band, to solo Chaz tracks like “Home On the Road,” which is Chaz by himself and a piano! The new album just dropped July 12th and this will be one you will not want to miss!
July 24 at Abilene Bar and Lounge in Rochester, will be the CD release party. Make sure to get down with this amazing band as they release this powerful album, and be on the look out for music videos from Trapezium Films who produced some amazing music videos for Chaz and the Dazzlers!
