Haze Over Hollywood

With an eclectic mix of alternative, rock, indie, jazz, pop and funk sounds, Haze Over Hollywood – a trio based in Orlando – has taken the area’s music scene by storm.

Alex Cole is the band’s lead vocalist, songwriter and guitarist who pens emotion-filled lyrics that speak to people, connecting the band with the listener. He has been playing alongside “vocussionist” and long-time friend Josh Padilla, who prefers to go by Tonz, since high school where they first met in 2008. Tonz brings high energy that complements Cole’s laidback demeanor. They welcomed bassist Matt Duarte to the group from Brazil last August, adding a fun flair to their style.

Haze Over Hollywood performs at venues across Central Florida, filling some sets with popular, laidback grooves that are presented with their distinct pop-rock twist and others with songs from Cole’s previous solo albums titled “City Lights” and “Venom & Honey.” The trio is currently writing new material and plans to record their first original album as Haze Over Hollywood this year.
