The Milwaukee based Chris Haise Band’s (pronounced Hi-zee) music is a blend of hook filled ballads and toe tappers. Mixing Folk and Rock, Haise’s vocals have been described as Dylan meets Springsteen meets Petty, while his lyrics have been described as “smart new songwriting” and “Intense, Thoughtful Songcraft”.
In 2017, Chris Haise released his solo album entitled “Your Ugly Friends” which was nominated for 88Nine’s Music Awards for Album of the Year, Independent Release of the Year, and Solo Artist of the Year. He was also selected as NSAI “One to Watch” along with winning Dylan Days Singer/Songwriter Contest. Adding members Mark Harrig (guitar/vox), Weston Gritt (bass), Tony Sturino (cello/vox), & Chad Burgess (drums), CHB became a WAMI award nominee on the steps of their first full band album “Suburban View” released in 2019. Again, CHB was nominated for 88Nine’s Music Awards for Album of the Year & Band of the Year. In 2020, singer song-writer Chris released a solo record during the pandemic lockdown called ‘The Quarantine Tapes.’ 2021 will bring another album release for CHB to release to the world.
