CREATIVE ART PRACTICES Songwriting/Composing, Performance Work
Raising Ruins is a European/English flavoured folk band which started early in 2010 by Tim Hazzard, who was recording a solo EP at the time. After jamming with Dan Van Werkhoven and Leisl he asked them to join him. After a year of work their debut EP was finished. Shortly after the EP was released Marieka Hazzard (Tim's wife) joined the band as percussionist, glockenspiel player and vocals. Tim and Dan then went on a rampage of song writing and quickly wrote a dozen new tunes. Out of that dozen they narrowed it down to one to release as a single while they worked on recording their new album. That single is Empty Sailor. Shortly after this Leisl left the band to head over seas and Erica Douglas took her place. Raising Ruins then released a second single called Ending Like It Should. Erica Douglas later also left the band along with Dan Van Werkhoven to persue other music projects. Raising Ruins was then and is now comprised of Tim Hazzard and Marieka Hazzard.
