Chris Haise Band (pronounced Hi-zee) announces their 2nd album, “Suburban View”, bringing a whole new polished sound filled with hook filled ballads and toe tappers.  The folk/rock Dylan-esque album will be released June 14th,2019.

The forthcoming album is a follow-up to Haise’s 2017 solo album entitled "Your Ugly Friends", which was nominated for multiple 88Nine’s Music Awards, was selected as NSAI "One to Watch", and won Dylan Days Singer/Songwriter Contest.  “Suburban View” comes on the steps of CHB already receiving a WAMI Award Nomination for 2019.


Self-recorded and engineered by band member Mark Harrig, “Suburban View” is composed of 7 tracks that reflect on Haise’s past experiences.  The album speaks to generational uncertainty trying to figure out a place in a changing world with songs like “Reciprocity” and “Help Myself”.  


Although a couple songs on the album have a familiar feel to Haise’s solo album, songs like “Women in Black” and “The Breakman” show Haise’s growth as a songwriter.  Haise also addresses hot button issues such as mental health with the powerful tune “Night Shadows”.

2020 wil bring another album release for CHB.

Band of the Year

 

Chris is a wizard on the piano...that voice, he can command a room...what important band for this city to have...if you haven't seen them you definitely should they are incredible.

The gravelly tone of Tom Petty and Bob Dylan's voice inevitably comes to mind hearing Haise sing on his sophomore album, and they've certainly had a hand in influencing his lyrics, as he ponders purpose in modern times. "Afternoon and I'm still half-asleep," he sings at one point, on "Reciprocity." "What if I was never woke?" As a demonstration of smart new songwriting, Haise's "Suburban View" is a clear wake-up call.

Music Review Roulette

Piet Levy - Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

The songs are as precise as they are concise, each finely tuned for maximum efficiency. Despite the live-in-the-studio looseness of his performances, nobody will mistake these songs for first drafts.

Evan Rytlewski - Shepherd Express

Haise's songwriting is sharp, pointed and concise on the new record....With twists tangling stories over many musical hooks, it's quite evident that this dedication to his vocation is paying dividends on "Suburban View."

Bryon Cherry - OnMilwaukee

"I don't need anything but a place to clear my head," Haise sings, showcasing his weathered, Tom Petty-esque voice while the song swells behind him. This is the kind of track that invites you to wave a lighter in the air.

Engage Haise in conversation and you get a young guy who is well-versed in the humanist side of current politics and admits he has more questions than answers. Which, coupled with his prodigious musical gifts, makes Haise the ideal ear on the ground.
