NEWS: Ben Hazlewood Celebrates the LGBT Community in Darkest Hour

June 15, 2017  •  Leave a Comment

Australian-based singer/songwriter Ben Hazlewood did a special performance today at the launch of the 2nd Annual Australian LGBTI Awards, where he debuted the music video for "Darkest Hour." The track is available on Hazlewood's most recent EP release, EOS, available now on iTunes. The touching clip comes just half way through Pride month and sheds light on current and past events, the anniversary of the tragic attack at Pulse Nightclub in Orlando just last year, and features unique individuals and examples of love that exist in the LGBTQ community.

 

"This song is a reminder that through the darkness there is still light and strength within you to keep the fight alive. The video is a celebration of the LGBT community and everything that's been achieved throughout the years working together to support each other as a community. A tribute to all the people that have paved the way for the future generations to grow and live with more love, understanding and acceptance." -- Ben Hazlewood

About Ben Hazlewood: Ben Hazlewood is a fiercely independent singer and songwriter who has the experience of someone twice his age, and a broad love of music that makes his own something timeless and wholly distinctive amidst a sea of aspiring voices.

 

Hazlewood's EP, Vanta, was released on June 3rd, 2016 and featured the singles   "Wanted" and "Paint Me Black ft. Mali Koa Hood". Tracks from the EP were also featured in a series of live recordings from Ocean Way in Nashville which earned Hazlewood the acclaim of "one of the best vocal performances of the entire decade" from PopDust.

 

Ben's follow up EP, EOS, premiered on Purevolume on May 4th, 2017. The Australia-based singer views the two EPs as a collective album.

 

"Eos is the Greek goddess of dawn. The theme behind these two EPs is it's always darkest before the dawn. The instrumentals and lyrics throughout Eos highlight the hope and peace in an otherwise dark and desperate place. There is always some light to hold on to no matter how faint it is." -Ben Hazlewood
