John, Mike, and Alex had worked together in the recently disbanded A Thousand Valleys. 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. So when A Thousand Valleys disbanded they decided to form a new project. With a large backlog of ideas they were working on new songs immediately. With all this new music they decided to search for a new singer. Having worked together in the band Fargone, Ben was the natural choice. Ben and Alex found a co-writing partnership that was exactly what Thru the Haze needed. That’s when riffs and jams turned into songs! The result is an eclectic style spanning many genres and generations of rock.
