27 year old Jax Haze stepped into the music scene four years ago, The Gold Coast multi-instrumentalist delivers a mix of blues, folk and rock and is on the verge of launching his debut EP. Perfect time to hang five.
Tell us about your new EP?
It’s been great to work with Govinda Doyle for my debut EP, he’s produced some incredible sounds across all five tracks that far exceeded my expectations. On top of that, the boys [Vinnie Heke and Jason Bailey] have provided a killer rhythm section for the first two tracks that really brought them to life.
You’re launching the EP on 3 February with Katie Who and Trapdoor: quite the line-up. What can we expect at the live show?
Movin’ and groovin’, lots of energy, and honestly, some of the finest musicians on the Gold Coast. It’s gonna be an epic evening!
You’re on a road trip from Perth to Sydney with three other bands / musicians. Who’s in the car with you?
Half Moon Run and Incubus, with local muso Mitch King riding shotgun, it definitely wouldn’t be our first road trip!
If you could play any festival in the world, which one would you choose?
Byron Bay Bluesfest. It’s one of the best festivals in the world, and it happens to be right on our doorstep. It hosts a wide array of the world’s biggest talents, from old legends to talented up and comers. Id love to be a part of that!
What do you love most about being a musician on the GC?
I feel that the whole music community is really banding together to make the Gold Coast scene flourish. With an abundance of immense talent on offer, it’s really inspiring us all to push our musical boundaries.
