“Previously based out of San Diego, Sharon Hazel Township brings a jazz-folk sensibility and sound to its increasingly frequent performances around town. Sometimes solo, sometimes as a band, the Township connects with anyone who digs both the poppy introspection of David Gray, the punk politics of Ani DiFranco and the fluid soul of Bill Withers. Though frontwoman Sharon Hazel is a gifted multi-instrumentalist, she most often straps on an acoustic guitar to challenge listeners with songs charting the ambiguities of gender and love and ultimately wins them over with her earnest voice and always graceful melodies”.

-Riverfront Times – St Louis

“The artist fuses folk, rock and emotionally driven songwriting, and has quite an accomplished resume”

-Performer Magazine

“The whole Socrates In Urgency album was produced, written, recorded and mixed by Sharon Hazel who also played all of the instruments on the album herself and on that alone it can be considered a great accomplishment but as this track shows there is clearly some wonderful musical ability here as well.”
