Haze & Dacey

Haze & Dacey are an acoustic duo playing a variety of folk, alt-country, roots-rock, country-blues, and the occasional hint of jazz or swing. Haze’s strong, clear vocal is smooth as silk on a ballad, but takes on sass and swagger as the song warrants. Dacey’s tenor contributes tight harmonies and the occasional lead vocal. Every now and then, they bust out the mouth-horns.

The duo covers a wide-ranging list of artists such as Patty Griffin, Imelda May, Tom Petty, Alison Krauss, Joni Mitchell, and The Decemberists. They specialize in obscure covers, but also throw in great songs that people will recognize, as long as they are not overplayed.  About 25-30% of their material consists of original songs written by Haze.

Based in Richmond, Virginia, Haze & Dacey range across the state from the tidewaters to the mountains, occasionally venturing as far as the Outer Banks of North Carolina and even the island of Martha's Vineyard in Massachussets. While holding down professional careers as an ecologist and a special education teacher, they maintain a busy schedule as weekend warriors, gigging several times a month. They are always on the lookout for opportunities to travel and share their music in new places.
