The Hazelman Brothers

The Hazelman Brothers

With a voice described as Gillian Welch meets Joan Baez, Ange Takats has been gathering a steady following in folk festival circles but her audience expanded by a million listeners when Fran Kelly's top rating Breakfast Show on Radio National decided to feature her as 'Album of the Week'.

Born in Sydney but now based on Queensland’s Sunshine Coast, Ange somehow landed herself in a folk rock band in Bangkok while she was working in Thailand as a foreign correspondent.

Singing songs from the early 70s, drinking sweet Thai whiskey and learning from Buddhist musicians with big hearts, Ange's songwriting has been greatly influenced by her time overseas.
Strangely enough, her Americana music influences came from her Thai friends who owned old hippie records left by US-soldiers after the Vietnam War. She credits them for introducing her to the likes of Janis Joplin, Bob Dylan, Neil Young, Joan Baez and groups like The Grateful Dead, The Allman Brothers and The Band.

Following her adventures in Asia, Ange enjoyed four years of chasing summer around the globe – spending time in the Middle East, Canada, Ireland, Spain and getting back to her Hungarian heritage in Eastern Europe.
