Sister Hazel group comes from Gainesville, Florida.  They can be described as vibrant band and deeply rooted in folk, pop and blending it with alternative and southern rock.  It is named after Sister Hazel Williams, a missionary who ran a homeless shelter.

Regret is such a miserable place to hang out and you can feel it at some point in the kick off track called “Prettiest Girl At The Dance.”  It dwells on the way things could have been and acknowledging the struggles.   It teaches us to use mistakes as a learning tool and appreciate everyone and everything in the present time.  It empowers us to take some steps forward, rebound and restructure life.

“Change Your Mind” has a memorable sunshine melody that serves as the main focus of the track.  Change can be daunting, but starting is always the hardest part of any journey.  Once you begin to move, you’ll tread on your destined path.  The standard tune is altered by rhythmic beat into a complex progression as it encourages us to break down the walls, step into our pure potential, authentic selves and shine our light. 

“Something to Believe” is ringing its midnight chimes.  The new leaf has been turned over and is starting a new story on a clean page.   It is a solemn purpose put into action while believing on the unchanging truth that changes us in ways we never dreamed possible.  It’s like a beautiful diamond that sparkles and dazzles in the dark.

“This Kind of Love” is a powerful song that embraces love of another kind.  It’s like no other.  There are people who say love never last.  The song says, “This kind of love it's what I dreamed about…Yeah it fills me up…Baby it leaves no doubt…This kind of love it's why I'm standing here…It's something that we can share…I can't enough of this kind of love…This kind of hope is what I try to find…And now I can't deny I believe…And this kind of faith is so unshakeable…It's unmistakable…It's bigger than me.”  This is a never ending love.  It shows how deeply God loves us.  This kind of love that captures our hearts, transformed us by its power and we inevitably respond with grateful hearts.  The group crafted an album full of inspiration, an album that can impact listeners.
