Hello, my name is Tony Hazzard... I'm a songwriter who sings...
Welcome to my website. Here you can find out who I am, what I've done, what I'm currently doing, and how to buy my music. You can link with me on Twitter, Facebook, and follow my blog.
Although most of my commercial success was writing for others in the sixties, and my own albums were bought by a selective few, I'm constantly surprised by the number of younger people I meet who know my work and are now discovering my own recordings, both past and present.
On the other hand, I’ve discovered that growing older doesn't mean the end of being creative. Quite the opposite in fact. The output may be slower but, with the changed perspective, I think the songs become a bit deeper and more thoughtful.
I want to keep writing, recording, and playing live while I still can and, although I no longer have any great commercial ambitions, my hope is that my songs will still be around when I'm not.
New Album Released...
My latest album, released on 29th Feb 2016, is now available on CD and download. To have a listen or to buy please click here.
"The Hallicombe Sessions is recorded as a live performance, raw and real, with flaws and all. The album is all the better for that. There is a refreshing honesty in the way the songs are recorded… Yes Tony is still here with us and going strong. This is an eclectic mix of songs that will serve him well. A really enjoyable album."
John Knighton, Fatea Records
