Our story begins with two young friends who found they had many things in common - a love for good literature, strong coffee and the creative arts; a hunger for adventure, a thirst for truth, and an insatiable desire to create and perform music.
Their journeys have led them to a wide variety of venues and locations over the years, spending countless hours in deep conversation as they peered out over the steering wheel into the dark highways. They have had the honour and pleasure of performing in festivals, conferences, universities, pubs, coffee shops, social club functions, churches, weddings, funerals, children's and seniors shows, house concerts, etc… in over 20 US states and 3 Canadian provinces (and a few other countries here and there).
Today they, with their three children, reside in Calgary, Alberta Canada. Much of the adventure includes struggling to get the kids to school on time, keeping up on the laundry and dishes... Yet somewhere through it all, they still find the time to create and write, to learn new instruments and to continue in their passion of recording and performing together. Like many musicians, apart from playing at their church, many of the bookings were cancelled over the course of the pandemic. But they are slowly accepting more bookings once again, as their schedule allows, and look forward to more opportunities to perform around Alberta once again!

Their latest album "Rainy Day Parade" is available on many of the streaming platforms. You may also order/download the album below. A number of the songs from this album have been created into lyric videos as well, which can be found on the 'Videos" tab of this site.
Hazel Grey is also in the process of recording two new singles:
"Driftwood", which is the first song Pete wrote for Josanna, before they even started dating, and sang for her in the branches of a sycamore tree in East Texas. As well as a re-vamped version of their song "Lover and the Fool", which was the title track from their first album in 1999 under the band name Laughing Sally. Stay tuned for the release dates!
