Hazel English at The Wayfarer

words + photos by Joe Cortez

Oakland's own (by way of Australia) Hazel English visited Costa Mesa's Wayfarer on Friday night, February 24 as part of the US leg of her Never Going Home tour in support of her EP of the same name (available now via House Anxiety/Marathon Artists).

Riding upon a wave of buzz following the release of "Never Going Home," Hazel English's dreamy brand of indie pop left the OC crowd swooning with delight during her set. English has an undeniable talent for conjuring music that evokes a sense of romantic wanderlust and wistful daydreams. Check out my photos from the night below and for more on Hazel English, be sure to visit hazelenglish.com and like Hazel English on Facebook.
