The first major female star of the 80’s, award winning singer-songwriter Hazel O’Connor rose to fame in 1980 starring in the iconic film Breaking Glass .

Accompanied here by virtuoso saxophonist Clare Hirst (The Belle Stars, Communards, David Bowie) on sax and vocals and Sarah Fisher(Eurythmics) on keyboards and vocals, this powerful blend of voices and musicianship brings a classy touch of energy to Hazel’s vibrant performance.
With a new album celebrating and reflecting Hazel’s very own Hallejujah Moments, expect a soulful introspective dip into Hazel’s stunning portfolio, the old and the new.
