Bio of Thru the Haze

John, Mike, and Alex had worked together in A Thousand Valleys. That band broke up in the summer of 2019. The three wanted to turn it up and get back to the roots of rock n roll. With a growing catalog of songs and ideas, Alex started working with Mike and John to bring life to this new music. As a rhythm section, John and Mike laid a solid musical foundation for Alex’s ideas to flourish. The musical chemistry was too good to pass up and things quickly started falling into place!

The resulted was an eclectic style spanning many genres and generations of rock.

Recently called “a local favorite” by the Blue Note Napa, Thru the Haze has earned their place with local audiences. Thru the Haze has become regulars at many of the SF North Bay Area’s hottest live music venues.

With live music venues closed during the COVID pandemic, Thru the Haze used the time to finish their first full length album. July 2020 saw the release of these efforts with the release of “Rekindle the Flame”.
